Description Huji 2013-01-05 01:01:16 UTC
Please install the free Persian fonts available from FarsiWEb: 

They are all released under GNU v.2 and they will be helpful for rasterizing SVG images.

Comment 1 Andre Klapper 2013-01-05 13:31:51 UTC
Why is this filed under SVG? 
This sounds like extensions/WebFonts instead?
Comment 2 Huji 2013-01-05 16:48:32 UTC
The fonts in question are NOT webfonts. They are needed for rasterization of text in SVG files. See bug 43640 for more details.
Comment 3 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2014-04-19 01:15:59 UTC
It appears these fonts have been available to svgs since at least Jun 2012, possibly significantly earlier. That is before this bug was filed. Could you please double check that these fonts really aren't available in your svg file?
Comment 4 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2014-04-19 01:35:42 UTC makes it look like the font is installed. Closing worksforme. Please re-open if the font isn't really installed or there are other issues.
