I've been having this problem for a while, but I never bothered to
really look into it, but now, I want to do something about it.
Thing is, when I view messages in Thunderbird - I use TB13 - that are
encoded in GB2312 and have chinese characters in them, the font looks
rather ugly. Unicode messages with or without chinese characters look
much better. I attached a screenshot for you to see what I mean.
I googled around for a bit but all the guides I could find were really
outdated or pointed to other guids that were also outdated.
So I tried installing some of the suggested fonts, bit that did nod
solve the problem.
$ qlist -I | grep media-fonts
Fonts under linux are still a little bit of a mystery to me to be
honest. So I hope one of you guys could help me out.
Oh, I use GNOME3 (3.4.x from the overlay) if it's relevant. And yes,
except for some small details, I like my GNOME3
