Bug Description

The font used for the Kubuntu 6.06 installer doesn't appear to have the characters needed to display all of the selection & instructions in Simplified Chinese. A lot of characters appear as big black dots instead

e.g.
When selecting a Language at the first screen, the choice for Simplified Chinese should read:

中文(简体)
          ^
NB: Above would only be legable if you use a Chinese font to view this.

In the Language selection list, the character above ^ is actually shown as a big black dot.

SOLUTION
This appears to be an issue with the Installer using the DeJanSans font. Prior to installation, I downloaded qt3-qtconfig, ran qtconfig, and applied a font substitution for DeJanSans font with "AR PL SanHeiSun Uni" font (thankfully one of the fonts Kubuntu has loaded by default). And restarted X. Seem to have solved the problem

guessing package

I don't know whose problem this is, but it's not a ubiquity bug. Something to do with Kubuntu's default font selection, I guess.

Is this still an issue with Dapper/Edgy/Feisty?
