Comment 4 for bug 123788

Confirmed that this is still a problem with Jaunty.

Reproduction steps:

- Install the lmodern package.
- Open a gnome application that lets you set the fonts. In this
reproduction scenario I will use Open Office.
- Set the font to LMRoman10.
- Type to notice that the font used is all caps.

Desired result:

It should not be all caps. The all caps font is a different font
(*NOT* LMRoman10 -- I forget off hand which one it is). The
applications are choosing the incorrect font.


This happens with every Gnome applications (and IIRC KDE applications
as well). However, if you use a straight X-Lib application like
xfontsel, it doesn't happen -- the correct font is chosen. This leads
me to believe that the problem is with font-config rather than the
application itself. However, I haven't done any work to verify my

Contrast with:

- Run xfontsel
- Select -*-latin modern roman-*-r-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
- Notice that lower case letters exist (i.e., it isn't an all caps font)

Hope that helps. If you have any more questions, I'll do my best to
answer them.
