Description Cheng-Chia Tseng 2012-10-17 08:41:35 UTC
Description of problem:
blender supports internationalization since 2.6. 
I have compiled blender myself, and the internationalization work is good. I can change to "Traditional Chinese" language via checking International Font option in File > User Preferences > System dialogue, then select Traditional Chinese and check Interface and Tooltips.

However, the version distributed by Fedora cannot take the advantage of blender 2.6 features.

If you open a terminal to launch blender, it will print out the message below:
BLF_get_unifont: 'fonts' data path not found for international font, continuing

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):2.63a-4


How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch blender
2. check "International Font" option in System tab of File > User Preferences dialogue
3. select Traditional Chinese as the language
4. check "Interface" and "Tooltips" to translate them into localized ones
  
Actual results:
You see many characters in supported language list are displayed as squares. And nothing happened after you applied the localization changes.


Expected results:
The internationalization work of blender should work fine out of box.

blender-2.65a-1.fc18.x86_64 provided by fedora does not support internationalization feature still.

Comment 2 Cheng-Chia Tseng 2013-02-23 04:09:53 UTC
In blender-2.65a-1.f18, if "international" being checked, the characters in the program will disappear instead of diplaying as squares in Fedora 17.
