Description Bill Nottingham 2003-01-23 23:47:47 EST
At least,


shows the standard unicode box.

Presumably this is because the syriac fonts
are installed in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/OTF,
which isn't referenced in the fontconfig config file.
Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2003-01-24 09:15:39 EST
Well, sort of. Note that even if the fonts are added, Syriac won't
render properly in GNOME (would need a couple of days work within
Pango) or probably KDE. (It's conceivable that Qt has support for
Syriac, but I doubt it.)
Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2003-02-24 09:26:47 EST
This was fixed in 2.1.2-6 a while ago.
