Some non latin characters not being displayed in PDF reports

Issue

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.

Cause

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.
