which font packages for wiki correctness in chromium [solved]

Some of the non-Latin page titles on the wiki require font packages.  Anyone know which ones?

It displays fine here: did you reset your font cache?

Re: which font packages for wiki correctness in chromium [solved]

Do you have /usr/share/fonts/misc in your font path?


Other than that, I'm stumped...

Re: which font packages for wiki correctness in chromium [solved]

If it helps, Firefox uses the following fonts when I just have the Wiki home page open:

$ lsof -p $(ps -o pid --no-headers -C firefox) | grep fonts
firefox 23199 david  mem    REG                8,1  2356632    52666 /usr/share/fonts/TTF/NanumGothic-ExtraBold.ttf

firefox 23199 david  mem    REG                8,1   856543    29015 /usr/share/fonts/TTF/HardGothicNormal.ttf

firefox 23199 david  mem    REG                8,1   363200     7114 /usr/share/fonts/TTF/DejaVuSerif.ttf

though I have no idea whether the non-latin characters are correct!

xorg-fonts it's a really bad idea: they're not supposed to render web pages.

The missing fonts are for CJK scripts. You can install dedicated fonts (C, J, K) for any of those languages. If you happen to own a copy of Windows 7, have a look at Meiryo and other fonts dedicated for Asian languages: they look very well. Besides, check your fontconfig file responsible for non-latin languages (it should be named in an obvious way) and add references to newly installed fonts so that they are rendered correctly.

Not that old.  In the the spirit of the necrobumping policy, I feel this thread is in fact still contemporary, which is why I am replying now.   I will mark as solved now but will trim down your list of 4 to just 1 (which gets most of them but not all).

# pacman -S ttf-arphic-uming

...kinda pisses me off that I need an extra 20 MB of fonts to do this when firefox does it with its native packages but whatever smile  I also updated the chromium wiki page.

Thanks!
