Sorry if I wasn't clear, I need to know about the name of the font -- is it a
Latin name or a CJK ideographic name and if a non-Latin character name (like
your name) what encoding does the font use for its *name*. To be clear.
"simsum" is in Latin characters but the example below is a Chinese name in
The known bugs are with Type1 fonts not providing the family name in a way that
Qt expected. So, this is probably not the problem.
So, I suspect that this is a related problem to a previous question. The
previous question had a font name in GB2312. In UTF-8, the font name was 锟斤拷
and this isn't showing up correctly here but I think that that is a font issue
since it shows up correctly in the Mozilla spelling checker. That is the UTF-8
code in HEX is: e9 94 9f e6 96 a4 e6 8b b7. I am told that this translates to
FangSong in Latin characters.
If you have such a font name, I do not know how Qt and KDE or FontConfig handle
such a name and therefore asked about this on the development list.
