emerges cleanly. Test it. This "arial" naming works technically, reduces amount
of diff needed.

Removed the symlinking part, as this has side-effects on onscreen display
(volume e.g.)

Comment 8 Matan 2005-05-29 07:42:45 UTC
According to bug 52851 hebrew fonts are missing or mispointed correctly, while
according to bug 94315 the "bidi" use flag has no entry in the ebuild, as a
result the missing use flag entry causes any(!) RTL language to display
backwards. Those two bugs are different.
Comment 9 Luca Barbato gentoo-dev 2005-08-04 11:32:34 UTC
bidi support is present at least in the pre7 ebuild, I warmly suggest to use the
truetype font support that is already present in mplayer since I won't add other
useflag and/or add any bitmap font to the ebuild if there is another solution
that is easyer.

Could we close this bug?
Comment 10 Luca Barbato gentoo-dev 2005-11-20 07:02:33 UTC
Closing as WONTFIX, truetype fonts should work fine for that task
