[Bug 1227034] Re: Default Chinese font changed to fonts-arphic-ukai after completing language support installation for zh-* locales
It seems like that this is affecting Trusty as well. I was trying to
add some IME for Traditional Chinese and this was the direction I took:
- Leave desktop manager untouched (Unity)
- sudo gnome-language-selector
- Click "Install/Remove Languages"
- Check "Chinese (traditional)"
After restarting the computer, it seems like the default font used for
Traditional Chinese Unicode characters is the "AR PL UKai" family
(especially for both sans-serif and sans). This font looks very
unreadable, especially on web pages. Are the fixes going to cherrypick
back to Trusty?

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 “fonts-takao” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “language-selector” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “fonts-android” package in Debian:
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.
