You want the font to change depending on the input setting ? Is it necessary now
that the fontconfig stuff is working for glyph substitution? Changing the font
depending on the input setting sounds a bit dodgy to me. Does anything else work
this way ?

Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-14 09:43:52 UTC
Assuming that the problem is that we want it to *just work*, i think the
fontconfig stuff in 1.9.117-1 is pretty complete.
