Description whistler 2009-01-09 09:10:06 UTC
when set the system locale to zh_CN.UTF-8, all the fonts in the UI will be italic.
This happens in both Debian's version and the official version.

if I use this command to launch, the problem will not happen:
LC_TIME=en_US.UTF-8 soffice

also, this only happens when using the KDE VCL plugin. The GTK version works
without problem.

Could you please inform us which exact Linux you are using to reproduce this
problem ?
Comment 4 whistler 2009-01-09 10:15:46 UTC
I'm currently using Debian lenny.

pl->sba: cannot reproduce in DEV300m40; could be fixed in the meantime. But
please have a look.

I have did some further tests, and it seems this only happen when I set the UI
font of KDE3 to a "specific" one (e.g., "DejaVu Sans") and not those ones like
"Sans Serif", "Serif", etc.

By setting the UI font to a Chinese font (like "AR PL ShanHeiSun Uni") also
fixes the problem. However, the problem still doesn't happen in other programs.
Comment 7 philipp.lohmann 2009-02-24 11:32:38 UTC
Setting the font to "DejaVu Sans" means you explicitly select a font which
cannot display chinese characters. In that case some replacement will be taken
that can, which in this case unfortunately seems to be an italic font.

pl->hdu: this seems to be another "fontconfig" font replacement issue, which
maybe is already fixed ?

maybe this should be closed as invalid as KDE3 is no longer active.
Comment 9 Marcus 2017-05-20 11:33:41 UTC
Reset assigne to the default "".
