Duration: 0:45

During and After my talk “Linux Font Rendering Stack” I was approached and asked about issues in the font rendering stack for users of non-latin script.

  • Linux VT (text console) is pretty much useless for non-latin scripts
  • Japanese users get Chinese variants of some characters

In this BoF we will discuss these and other problems and possible solutions. It is open to everyone interested.
