I have installed fedora-gnome on one of my computers and fedora-xfce on another.

I wonder, how I could change system font for a specific language -- in my case it is Syriac? The system provides a Syriac font by default, but it's a bit ugly and has mistakes in it so I want to change it.

Somehow I managed to do it myself.

1) Chose Syriac keyboard and Syriac (phonetic) keyboard layout. 2) Installed the Syriac fonts. 3) locate FreeSans. Then removed all the FreeSans font files (actually moved them to /tmp).

Now the fonts are correct. The only bad thing is that the gnome-terminal does not support right-to-left.
