User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218

Description of problem:
try this:
# gnome-font-properties
there are no Kochi-fonts.
start mozilla> preferences> fonts> Japanese
You'll see "No fonts available".

I installed kochi-fonts, but I can't see them.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.# gnome-font-properties
2.there are no Kochi-fonts

Actual Results:  I can't see any japanese truetype fonts. 

Expected Results:  I CAN see japanese truetype fonts. 

Additional info:

Gnome2 uses truetype fonts, 
so we can't see any characters.
I'm waiting for your next beta (or fixed phoebe) ;)

Did you install in X graphical mode?  My text grahpical mode installation
crashed near the end before it installed some Japanese packages.  Did you see
any error messages near the end of the installation?

>Did you install in X graphical mode?

I use nVidia's geforce2mx-64mb and sony multiscan E200.
Did you check md5 sums?
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2002-12-24 03:26:32 EST
Yes, my MD5SUMS were valid.

I'm not 100% sure this is a missing or corrupted package issue, I still haven't
done a graphical Phoebe install yet.  I'm trying that next.

>Yes, my MD5SUMS were valid.

OK, when I installed phoebe, I selected "Custom Install".
then I selected these packages:
 gnome desktop
 kde desktop
 other window managers(?? I don't remember..) 
 tools for development(gnome-dev, kde-dev, etc)
They need about 2.5gb disk usage.
I didn't select server packages.
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2002-12-24 06:17:47 EST
Bug 80314 might be related to this problem, not entirely sure.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2002-12-24 16:26:24 EST
We don't have a 'kochi-fonts' package - is this a different package you're talking

Where does it install the fonts to?
Comment 7 Need Real Name 2002-12-25 00:16:41 EST
I wrote:
  Component: ttfonts-ja
so just download "ttfonts-ja-1.2-17.noarch.rpm",
then do it:
  # rpm2cpio ttfonts-ja-1.2-17.noarch.rpm | cpio -id
>Where does it install the fonts to?

You'll find "kochi-gothic.ttf" and " kochi-mincho.ttf" in
/usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType .

I'll delete phoebe soon, I'm waiting for next beta..
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2002-12-25 00:34:12 EST
Hm, I can see those fonts here, but my box is an upgrade, not a fresh install.
Will have to check on a fresh install sometime towards the new year.
Comment 9 Need Real Name 2002-12-26 13:54:39 EST
Now I can see Japanese TrueType fonts.
I did like this:
# cd /usr/share/fonts/ja/
# rm -rf default*
# rm -rf fonts.cache-1
# fc-cache
# gnome-font-properties
->select kochi-gothic
and you'll be able to see Japanese characters!
Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2002-12-30 01:03:17 EST
Hm, sounds like something odd with how fontconfig handled that package install?
Comment 11 Need Real Name 2003-01-22 04:31:58 EST
fixed in phoebe2. thanks.
