[Bug 1334495] Re: Two mixed fonts when rendering Chinese in KDE/QT apps with Droid Sans fonts
I added the fontconfig file (also had to create the directory conf.d),
but the bug still exists after a reboot.
However, the default font apparently changed. (At least in the KDE
terminal/Konsole: As when the locale was Chinese, the same annoying
phenomena exists: a huge whitespace is in front of the cursor, and even
moves through the text when I use the arrow keys to move horizontally in
the command entered)
Might it be possible that the problem is more connected to the "missing"
Droid fonts? I think the "normal" characters stem from the Droid font.
If nothing changes even if Droid is the default font, that would mean
that on my installation Droid does not have enough glyphs to cover all
characters, and instead the glyphs of Ukai, which has a way lower
priority, are used?
Also, in the output of fc-match, I see several Droid fonts for non-latin
languages, like Hebrew or Japanese, but not for Chinese. I am not sure
if it might be possible that the Droid Japanese font is used to display
Chinese characters, and non-covered characters are displayed with Ukai?

Two mixed fonts when rendering Chinese in KDE/QT apps with Droid Sans
Status in “fonts-android” package in Ubuntu:
In all desktop applications, two different fonts are mixed to display Chinese text. I attached a screenshot of a paragraph of Chinese text in Kmail - some characters are displayed using a "italic" font, others in a "normal" font. The same problem exists in other applications, for example Dolphin or even Konsole. In Xterm, only the "normal" characters are displayed, where Dolphin displays italic characters Xterm leaves a white space. Websites are displayed fine, if I open the same mail in the web interface only one font is used.
I' am using Kubuntu 14.04 with the language set to German in KDE settings.
The output of "locale" looks a bit messed up, I don't know why, as in the KDE settings all formats are consistently set to German standard.

This is my first bug filed at launchpad. I filed it for language-selector as other related bugs I found were filed for the same package. If it isn't language-selector, perhaps you can point me to the right package?
