[Bug 1227034] Re: Default Chinese font changed to fonts-arphic-ukai after completing language support installation for zh-* locales
Hi Gunnar and all,
This is regression report of this updates from *Japanese* user.
- Today, I update my 14.04 testbeds(yes, i have three testbeds), and
applied this update. My desktop font are changed. Probably, generic
sans-serif override by droids. In Japanese environment, that expects
takao fonts. All of my testbeds are affected.
This breaks only appearance-level (non japanese glyphs), I can read it,
but I have bring a feeling of strangeness. This distinction are
important for user experience.
I have two questions about this updates, because this new fontconfig
*breaks Japanese* font environments (probably. currently suspicious, but
i delete 65-droids, problem has gone. ).
This updates is good approach, but that breaks non-Chinese environments. Probably, this configs are over-powered. We have to limit this configs.
Could you please add "match" section for 65-droids like 65-fonts-takao's? And, that is important,
Is this(question 1's addition) require UIFe? I belive original changes had not UIFe applications, this more changes does not.
# I belive that this original changes are too late for LTS development
cycle, at least, we must declare UIFe. Therefore, I look sideways this
changes progress, I had not tested. real root cause are my remissness.

Default Chinese font changed to fonts-arphic-ukai after completing
language support installation for zh-* locales
Status in Ubuntu Kylin:
Status in “fonts-android” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “language-selector” package in Ubuntu:
After completing language support installation, fonts-arphic-ukai and
fonts-arphic-uming are pulled into user's system and then fontconfig
chooses Ukai over Droid Sans Fallback for the default sans-serif font.
This is not the desired behavior as Ukai doesn't fit well into the
category of screen fonts comparing to Droid Sans.
