Speaker: Max Harmathy
Track: Ad-Hoc Talks
Type: BoF (45 minutes)
Room: Yushan (玉山)
Time: Aug 05 (Sun), 14:00
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.
