Description Y.LE_NY 2017-05-13 15:28:34 CEST
Description of problem:
When you have only fonts-ttf-liberation installed by default by mageia installer, you can show only square character for character in cyrilic or japanese or chinese characters in a error message on a web site.(and the same problem for mathematical characters)

Then you can not copy and paste this error message in a translator tool like Google Translate to know the error message in your mother language.
Can you install "fonts-ttf-unifont - GNU Unifont glyphs"​ by default in Mageia to show all the characters in all the languages in the world in a web browser or word processor document and make the Mageia user life easier.

As you can see here: http://www.unifoundry.com/unifont.html , "fonts-ttf-unifont - GNU Unifont glyphs"​ allow to show a lot of charcters in a lot of languages.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mageia 6 sta2 

How reproducible:
Note : Mageia 6 sta 2 minimum installation with minimum packages + X server + docs + urpmi + IcewM for WM WITHOUT Plasma (KDE) and Gnome or others windows managers.


Steps to Reproduce:

I think this is a good catch and should definitely be included in the default install.

Just checked my installation and fonts-ttf-unifont was not installed and I have Plasma, among others, installed.

Comment 2 Samuel Verschelde 2017-07-10 16:22:22 CEST
It would be good to add a note about this in the Errata, thus I'm adding the
FOR_ERRATA6 keyword.

Once added to https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Mageia_6_Errata please replace
FOR_ERRATA6 with IN_ERRATA6.
