Subject: [gentoo-user] Thunderbird and chinese fonts
Date: Mon, 18 Jun 2012 11:03:23
1 I've been having this problem for a while, but I never bothered to
2 really look into it, but now, I want to do something about it.
4 Thing is, when I view messages in Thunderbird - I use TB13 - that are
5 encoded in GB2312 and have chinese characters in them, the font looks
6 rather ugly. Unicode messages with or without chinese characters look
7 much better. I attached a screenshot for you to see what I mean.
9 I googled around for a bit but all the guides I could find were really
10 outdated or pointed to other guids that were also outdated.
12 So I tried installing some of the suggested fonts, bit that did nod
13 solve the problem.
15 $ qlist -I | grep media-fonts
16 media-fonts/arphicfonts
17 media-fonts/bitstream-cyberbit
18 media-fonts/cantarell
19 media-fonts/corefonts
20 media-fonts/dejavu
21 media-fonts/droid
22 media-fonts/encodings
23 media-fonts/font-alias
24 media-fonts/font-bh-ttf
25 media-fonts/font-bh-type1
26 media-fonts/font-daewoo-misc
27 media-fonts/font-isas-misc
28 media-fonts/font-misc-misc
29 media-fonts/font-util
30 media-fonts/liberation-fonts
31 media-fonts/libertine-ttf
32 media-fonts/terminus-font
33 media-fonts/ttf-bitstream-vera
34 media-fonts/unifont
35 media-fonts/urw-fonts
37 Fonts under linux are still a little bit of a mystery to me to be
38 honest. So I hope one of you guys could help me out.
40 Oh, I use GNOME3 (3.4.x from the overlay) if it's relevant. And yes,
41 except for some small details, I like my GNOME3:)
