Description Amir Aharoni 2012-10-20 16:36:09 EDT
Description of problem:

I installed Fedora 17 on my laptop. I tried to access the article "Gothic language" in the English Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_language ). It showed the name of the language in its own script as squares, because the font for that script is not installed by default.

Note, that this is not about a Blackletter font, also known as "Gothic", but about the ancient Gothic font. See:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora with the Gnome desktop.
2. Use Firefox to go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Amire80/Fedora_fonts .
3. Check whether the line that says "Gothic" has Gothic letters. If it has squares or numbers, then the font is not installed.
Actual results:
The line shows squares.

Expected results:
The lines is supposed to show Gothic letters.

Installing the GNU Free Fonts solved this. Is there any chance to have it installed by default?
