Summary0005178: gnome-terminal font gets removed when removing "Arabic Support"
DescriptionAfter installing CentOS 6.0 x86_64 from bin-DVD 1 selecting Desktop, it includes the yum group "Arabic Support". While using gnome-terminal I removed the group "Arabic Support", because I'm using an English (US) language for this server. By removing the "Arabic Support" group, this removed a font used by gnome-terminal causing the text to become very dim and hard to read. After re-installing "Arabic Support", gnome-terminal was restored to it's normal behavior.
Steps To ReproduceInstall "Arabic Support" (if not already present).
yum groupinstall "Arabic Support"
Select Y to approve the installation.
(Notice the names of the fonts it used. gnome-terminal used a mono type font as listed and selected in it's profile.)
Bring up the gnome-terminal.
yum groupremove "Arabic Support"
Select Y to approve the removal.

After the removal is completed the font displayed in gnome-terminal becomes very dim.

To restore the font displayed in gnome-terminal to normal, re-install "Arabic Support":
yum groupinstall "Arabic Support"
Select Y to approve the installation.
Additional InformationThis may be a "Arabic Support" group issue, but I wasn't able to find a category for it in CentOS bug reporting. The only place I've observed the font becoming dim so far is in gnome-terminal. I don't know if "Arabic Support" is actually using the font it removes that gnome-terminal is using.

If there is a better category to address this issue, please inform or move it to that category.

That one is the culprit and I wonder why it gets removed, as it shouldn't hold any dependency on one of the packages which gets erased.

I don't have a CentOS 6 handy: what does a yum groupinfo "Arabic Support" say?

On a Fedora system it lists the dejavu-sans and dejavu-sans-mono fonts, so these would likely be removed, too.

I guess that one is an upstream bug - can anybody with a RHEL 6 confirm that? I cannot look at one befor monday.
