Patch for merging latinic fonts from Plasma 5.2 to 'vernon-adams' branch

Description Kyrylo Bohdanenko 2015-03-09 20:46:29 UTC

It's been a while since Oxygen Fonts 0.4 release and still cyrillic charaters are missing. I am using russian locale and sometimes the picture 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch KDE to locale which uses cyrillic symbols (e.g. ukrainian, bulgarian, russian, ...) 

Actual Results:  
Cyrillic glyphs are drawn with other font (configured as fallback).

Expected Results:  
Cyrillic glyphs should be present in Oxygen fonts.

Yes, they're looks really bad.
The same report on launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/oxygen-fonts/+bug/1454672

Also, in git branch 'vernon-adams' there are already some draft versions. So why not at least merge the into master?

On my system I dowloaded code from git://anongit.kde.org/oxygen-fonts, switched to 'vernon-adams' branch and applied the attached patch (i.e. merged latinic glyphs  from master).

Thanks for your bug report.

Unfortunately we do not have the resources to maintain this font anymore and moved upstream to using the Noto font [1] which also provides much better glyph coverage. We advise you do the same. Sorry.
