Davide's regular posts to the deb18n list, asking for feedback on the increasingly familiar D-I screenshot, deserved a good outcome. Where are we with dejavu and different languages? Is there any language represented in Debian which still has display issues with dejavu?Most Indic languages are not well supported and we either use freefont or specialized fonts (I was working yesterday on the font to properly Malayalam). Dzongkha (Tibetan script) is also better supported with either a specialized font (Jomolhari) or the Tibetan Machine font Amharic, when supported, will probably use Abyssinia. Arabic uses Nazli from ttf-farsiweb. So would Persian. Georgian uses BPG_Glaho Khmer uses KhmerOSsys from the KhmerOS initiative Thai uses a font from ttf-thai-tlwg-udeb CJK languages have a specialized "compact" udeb named ttf-cjk-compact-udeb. I don't know which font is used as basis for this.
Thanks for the update, Christian. :)from Clytie (vi-VN, Vietnamese free-software translation team / nhóm Việt hóa phần mềm tự do)
