Sorry, this did not work either. Dejavu does support cyrillic and greek
characters but I have to load a different ttf for that. They are no
unified. :-( The only one that worked so far was "unifont.tff" but it is
very ugly above point size=10.
Can you tell me what kind of font Geany is using on my Ubuntu system?
The preferences tells that it is "monospace" but when I load
VeraMono.ttf in reportlab, it will not even display latin2 characters.
In contrast, please look at this example that show my test program in Geany:
It is a real scalable truetype font, displaying latin 1, latin2,
chinese, russian and japanese characters. Is it the same font? Does this
mean that reportlab is buggy? If I could load the same font that geany
uses, it would probably solve my problem forever.
