QWebView does not show wide-characters

  • Hi,

    I just compiled the qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.3 source with the following configure options
    @./configure -xplatform qws/linux-i686-g++ -embedded x86 -D QT_NO_QWS_MULTIPROCESS
    -prefix /root/tmp/QtEmbed
    -qt-gfx-linuxfb -qt-gfx-vnc -freetype -fontconfig
    -no-largefile -exceptions -no-accessibility -no-qt3support -no-sse2 -qt-zlib -qt-gif -no-libtiff
    -qt-libpng -no-libmng -qt-libjpeg -no-openssl -no-nis -no-cups -depths 8,16,32
    -qt-kbd-linuxinput -nomake demos -nomake examples
    -confirm-license -opensource -no-ssse3@

    and build the fancybrowser under /examples/webkit/, but this fancybrowser does not show any wide-characters in the webpage.
    the screenshot is here:, url is
    does anyone meet this problem before and know how to resolve it? thanks in advance.

  • It seems that when you build qt with -embedded option, qt will only search qt's /lib/fonts directory for the font files, and the fonts shipped with the qt source does not contain a font which supports wide-characters.
