[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#827045: fonts-fantasque-sans: (mono) broken right quotes (single and double)
Thanks for packaging this font! I used it in my terminal for a long
time until this bug bothered me enough to switch.
There seems to be a bug with the closing "smart" quote symbols in
Fantasque Sans _Mono_. I mean the last character on the following
ie U+201d and U+2019
For me, in st (suckless terminal) and inkscape, the closing quotes
appear a full character to the left of where they should, as though
they were accents on the "s" characters.
This has been reported upstream (for the single quote only) here:
Apparently this issue bug does not happen if the font is built with
a sufficiently new version of FontForge. (According to the bug link
above.) They don't specify how new, but they don't like the 2012
version that's in debian now.
