I have considered moving from Fedora 17 to Arch Linux. After some menial setups and discovering that the font displaying option is very tiresome and annoying, I gave up.
But I have this question: How are non-English fonts selected to be displayed on Gnome-shell(gnome 3) and in Google Chrome?
Say I have
Font a, b, c and
Unicode font ua, ub, uc. From gnome-tweak-tool I am using
font a for system UIs, and Google Chrome uses
font b for web pages. In order to display some non-English Unicode strings, there has to be some sort of linking each font with Unicode fonts. In Windows 7, as far as I vaguely recall, if I edited the registry's systemlink/fontlink keys everything was perfect. In Linux, I can't find anything equivalent to Windows' fontlink.
