[Bug 1334495] Re: Two mixed fonts when rendering Chinese in KDE/QT apps with Droid Sans fonts
Hi Lukas, and thanks again for your efforts. The name of the Chinese
font file is DroidSansFallbackFull.ttf, and that file is included
somewhere in the fc-match output, right? So the font is there, it's just
that the system doesn't see it...
Since we have several concurrent font-droid related issues, I filed bug
#1351092 in an attempt to sort things out. It would be great if you as a
test could uninstall fonts-droid and install fonts-droid-cjk and
language-selector-common from the PPA mentioned there and let us know
the result. I took the liberty of subscribing you to the other bug.

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?
