Let's get started with this.

I have uploaded some language-selector changes to bionic. They include:

* The Japanese config file proposed by Mitsuya Shibata in comment #11.

* Adding of Korean entries to
  /etc/fonts/conf.avail/64-language-selector-prefer.conf

To make it easier to test on Ubuntu 17.10, I also uploaded the new language-selector version to the artful pocket of this PPA:

https://launchpad.net/~gunnarhj/+archive/ubuntu/noto-test

However, Launchpad seems to be unusually busy for some reason, so it will probably take several hours for both uploads before they are available...

Later on, if we decide to switch to Noto, changes need to be done to several seed branches, so the installer does not install Takao/Nanum fonts. At this time, to test the changes, you need to remove Takao/Nanum packages manually:

sudo apt purge fonts-takao-*

sudo apt purge fonts-nanum*

Also, the fonts-noto-cjk package, which is installed by default for all users, only includes the font weights "Regular" and "Bold". To get access to the other weights, you need to do:

sudo apt install fonts-noto-cjk-extra

I ask our Japanese and Korean users to please test this and provide feedback.
