Dear FontConfig developers, maintainers,
FontConfig is used by Ubuntu and I have a problem/question about Ubuntu and/or FontConfig. I asked Ubuntu developer/maintainer and they asked me to ask FontConfig.
When Ubuntu is being installed and used, there is a need to use different fonts for different language/scrip/writing systems. When I use it in Uyghur (Uighur), the system picks up another bad font for all GUI. That bad font even does not support the necessary/required code points/glyphs, and thus the GUI is full of bugs and it is hard to read/comprehend.
I contacted Ubuntu developers/maintainers about this issue and was told that there is something called fontconfig snippet which they do not know well enough.
So I am here to ask your help. I have couple of questions:
(1) Why does the fontconfig select the font poorly here, even selecting a font which does not support the required code points and or glyphs?
(2) Is the any way to tell/force fontconfig to use a font for the given language environment / writing system / scripts?
