Mirror the same font packages as production in Tools
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Labs seems to have a different set of fonts installed vs. production. (I know this because librsvg renders Chinese-language SVGs differently on Labs to production.)

More specifically, if fc-list is to be believed, Tools is missing some ~200 fonts installed in production, including all non-Western fonts.

I'm hoping this should be as easy as importing the required font packages as described at [1].

Marc-André, can you estimate the effort? Sure, we need non-Western fonts!

It should be relatively easy. I'm travelling until Feb 12, but I might even be able to do this before then.
