I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS from 14.04 LTS. All worked pretty fine except for an issue on Chinese fonts which I've been unable to resolve.
While the font is mostly OK in system applications, it doesn't work well in Chrome: It seems that Chrome automatically uses
Noto Sans font as the fallback font, which for some reason is only installed in its "thin" variant in 16.04 LTS and thus looks very ugly. In Firefox and many other applications, the font
Wenquanyi Zenhei is correctly used as the fallback font and it looks much better. If I delete
Noto Sans from the system, Chrome just gives me blank squares instead of trying to use
I'm not sure why that's happening. Is this something specific to Chrome, that Google intends it to use its own
Noto Sans font for fallback? Or is it something about system configuration? Or is there some setting in Chrome that I can change? How can I change the fallback font for CJK?(systemwide or just for Chrome)
