Re: Changing the default sans font - only for a certain language

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


That's a bit sad. I am an Ubuntu user who recently upgraded to version 7.04. After the upgrade, my Hebrew fonts were changed to something barely readable. The English fonts however, are still the same.

Having a way to define Arial as my primary Hebrew font, yet preserving DejaVu Sans as my primary English font, would simply save me from becoming insane. Instead, I've been reading fontconfig and pango and whatever not man pages, trying to figure out what has changed and why.

There have been attempts to add this to fontconfig

To my knowledge so far they haven't succeeded. I won't try to paraphrase
the arguments against as I don't believe in them and would only make a
mockery of them.
