Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Ubiquity does not use correct font sets that provide from Locale settings in Japanese

How to reproduce:
  1) Boot from Desktop CD / Daily Live: 20100427 ( lucid-desktop-i386.iso / 27-Apr-2010, 12:06)
  2) something type in boot splash(gfxboot)
  3) select '日本語' at gfxboot screen.
  4) start live session
  5) show ubiquity with

Actual results:
   ubiquity use something Simplified-Chinese fonts for Japanese Kanji Characters.
   see: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/45734883/LC_ALL__unset.png

Expected results:
  ubiquity use locale-matched fonts(TakaoPGothic) for Japanese Kanji Characters.
   see: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/45734891/LC_ALL_set___ja_JP.UTF-8.png

Supplementary info:
   If you set LC_ALL env variables, ubiquity will select valid font set.
    1) type: Alt + F2
    2) Type below in "Run Application"
   /bin/sh -c 'LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 ubiquity'
    3) You will see valid font sets.

   Traditional/Simplified Chinese and Japanese have same Kanji characters, but
   they not use same variant, so fonts are not same.
    (e.g. http://launchpadlibrarian.net/45735265/kanji.png)
   This confusing is something odd, like mistake Ä for A.
