Bug Description

Binary package hint: wine

Dear friends,

As you can see in the attached screen shot, wine renders squares where there should be Hebrew text.

Here's the output:

Do you have the Microsoft Fonts installed?

If no, please try installing them and tell me if that fixes the issue:
apt://ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Dear Scott,

I do have the ttf-mscorefonts-installer installed. Version 2.6.

Any other ideas please?

Attaching the program I'm encountering this in because it will soon not be available for download. I think there's no legal problem.

ttf-mscorefonts-installer simply allows you to install Microsoft True Type
Core Fonts for the Web including:

  Andale Mono
  Arial Black
  Arial (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  Comic Sans MS (Bold)
  Courier New (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  Georgia (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  Impact
  Times New Roman (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  Trebuchet (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  Verdana (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic)
  Webdings

You will need an Internet connection to download these fonts if you
don't already have them.

International language fonts are not included. The same squares are displayed under Windows if the appropriate language pack is not installed.

The key lines in your report are:

err:richedit:RTFCharSetToCodePage unknown charset -1000000
fixme:font:WineEngCreateFontInstance Untranslated charset 192

I have no idea how to install language packs under wine.

So... This ain't a bug?

Perhaps it would be beneficial to know that other applications like the Word Viewer itself does display Hebrew characters.

Font appeared after installing tahoma32.exe font packages from

Widgets placement is still Left-To-Right, but it is minor problem.
