Description John Thacker 2005-04-20 01:33:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-2 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
The japanese fonts were moved from /usr/share/fonts/ja to /usr/share/fonts/japanese.  But the CIDFnmap.ja file that tells, e.g., mozilla where to find the Japanese fonts didn't reflect those changes.  As a result, Japanese fonts aren't printed from firefox, mozilla, et al.

[jat48@thacker ~]$ rpm -q --changelog fonts-japanese | more

- Use /usr/share/fonts/japanese instead of /usr/share/fonts/ja

[jat48@thacker ~]$ rpm -ql fonts-japanese | grep ttf

But in /etc/ghostscript/CIDFnmap.ja :

/Kochi-Mincho   (/usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType/kochi-mincho-subst.ttf) ;
/Kochi-Gothic   (/usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType/kochi-gothic-subst.ttf) ;

The file needs to be edited to point to the right path.  Otherwise people can't print from browsers.

The same thing goes for the Chinese and Korean font packages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to print Japanese from firefox or mozilla
2. Note the utter failure.

Actual Results:  Japanese doesn't print; usually blank spaces or boxes.

Expected Results:  Japanese should have printed.
