Package: blender
Version: 2.79+dfsg0-3+b1
Severity: important
Tags: l10n

Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?
       - installed the blender via apt-get from repository of Kali. 
         please note that this packages is an unmodified one from Debian

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

       - in blender created a text object(On the left pane select tab Create, 
(scroll down), find "Other" section, click  "Text"
         then on the bottom pane click on "Object Mode" drop down, select "Edit 
mode", notice non blinking cursor appearance
         on the rendered text object, then put russian character or english 
characters with keyboard; nothing will
         be displayed, while normal editing commands(like delete) and putting 
non-russian text works)

         tried to edit and enter a russian character and failed to do so. 
         Russian character are displayed in the UI of blender fine but are not 
         no matter what I do I can't make it work for this one need to install 
the keyboard switcher

       - I am able to see the Russian characters in the UI of blender, however, 
not in the render of 
         the text object. 
       - in the output of blender noticed, that following error messages are 

[Tue Jan  9 08:57:51 UTC 2018]:~$ blender -d

BLF_get_unifont: 'Dejavu Sans' font not found with fontconfig
BLF_get_unifont_mono: 'Dejavu Sans Mono' font not found with fontconfig

       - I am suspecting that this behaviour has something to do with the 
following thread:
         and following patch:

         Lines 186 and 220 

         To me it seems that an attempt was made to load another font, however, 
it is failing. 
         This or similair bug was reported earlier and is not marked as fixed:

       - Note: On my system I see that fc-list has "Dejavu*" while the patch 
expects "DejaVu", not sure if this is root cause.
         See the following output from fc-list:

[Tue Jan  9 08:24:01 UTC 2018]:~/bin$ fc-list | grep -i "Dejavu Sans Mono"

   * What was the outcome of this action?
         - I have failed to add a russian character into the text object of 

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
         - I expected to see russian character added in blender 
         - As I am not 100% sure on the origin of the issue I have also 
submitted this report:
