Bug Description

Since Ubuntu 18.04 the intended default Chinese font for serif is "Noto Serif CJK {SC,TC}".

At the same time we install the fonts-arphic-uming package for Chinese users. fonts-arphic-uming installs the fontconfig configuration file 64-arphic-uming.conf. That file includes strong bindings to "AR PL UMing" and "DejaVu Serif" which conflict with the Ubuntu specific 69-language-selector-zh-*.conf files.


$ LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8 fc-match serif
uming.ttc: "AR PL UMing CN" "Light"

I would have expected that command to return:
NotoSerifCJK-Regular.ttc: "Noto Serif CJK SC" "Regular"

The issue was brought to my attention through the Ask Ubuntu question <>.

Given that we handle the font configuration for Chinese users via Ubuntu specific files, 64-arphic-uming.conf does not fit well on Ubuntu. Dropping the related symlink in /etc/fonts/conf.d appears to be a reasonable solution.

  * debian/fonts-arphic-uming.links:
    - Disable 64-arphic-uming.conf by dropping the symlink to it, since
      the file isn't compatible with the 69-language-selector-zh-*.conf
      files (LP: #1834561).
