Description

Without this patch, flash-player cannot find the founder fonts to display Chinese flash. flash-player does find the Arphic PL fonts, but these don't look as nice as the founder fonts. And if only the founder fonts are installed and the Arphic PL fonts are not installed, Chinese text within flash is not displayed at all. This patch adds entries to the fonts.dir files (which are parsed by flash-player to find fonts) to make flash-player find and use the founder fonts if these are installed.

Installation notes

This update is provided as RPM packages that can easily be installed onto a running system by using this command:
rpm -Uvh ttf-founder-traditional.rpm ttf-founder-simplified.rpm
