Some non latin characters not being displayed in PDF reports


On new installations of Interset 5.6, the PDF rendering will not display non-latin characters on a CentOS systems which does not have extensive fonts installed.


Missing font packages from reporting machine

Resolution Step

Additional fonts must be installed on the reporting machine using the following steps:

1.  Switch to become the root user
2.  Run, yum groupinstall -y fonts
3.  fc-cache -fv

In the case where the fonts group is not available, one can install all of the fonts by running this command:

1.  yum install cjkuni-uming-fonts dejavu-sans-fonts dejavu-sans-mono-fonts dejavu-serif-fonts gnu-free-mono-fonts gnu-free-sans-fonts gnu-free-serif-fonts google-crosextra-caladea-fonts google-crosextra-carlito-fonts jomolhari-fonts khmeros-base-fonts liberation-mono-fonts liberation-sans-fonts liberation-serif-fonts lklug-fonts lohit-assamese-fonts lohit-bengali-fonts lohit-devanagari-fonts lohit-gujarati-fonts lohit-kannada-fonts lohit-malayalam-fonts lohit-marathi-fonts lohit-nepali-fonts lohit-oriya-fonts lohit-punjabi-fonts lohit-tamil-fonts lohit-telugu-fonts madan-fonts nhn-nanum-gothic-fonts open-sans-fonts overpass-fonts paktype-naskh-basic-fonts paratype-pt-sans-fonts sil-abyssinica-fonts sil-nuosu-fonts sil-padauk-fonts smc-meera-fonts stix-fonts thai-scalable-waree-fonts ucs-miscfixed-fonts vlgothic-fonts wqy-microhei-fonts wqy-zenhei-fonts

This should allow non latin characters to be displayed in PDF reports.
