Hi Gunnar,

Thanks for the good work. The zh_CN locale now works as expected.

However, I wish I could say the same thing for the en_US locale. I am attaching a screenshot showing that many Chinese characters were missing (represented by rectangles) when running the Chromium browser.

I would like to note several other observations:

1. The missing Chinese characters were properly shown in Firefox. I.e., No problem in Firefox, big problem in Chromium.

2. In Chromium, I cannot find Droid Sans Fallback fonts in the (Setting --> Select default fonts).

3. I am also encountering missing Chinese character problems in using Fcitx (Chinese input engine). This may render Ubuntu 14.04 unusable for (at least) English locale users who have a need to input Chinese characters.

4. In zh_CN.UTF-8 locale, the command ' fc-match "sans" ' returns

      DroidSansFallbackFull.ttf: "Droid Sans" "Regular"

4. In en_US.UTF-8 locale, the same command ' fc-match "sans" ' returns

     DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"
