    this is a bug with some win8 fonts, the bug is with some of the fonts themselves no way to fix it, just remove the fonts and rerun fonts-config

    ps. for a single user setup you can copy your fonts in the .fonts dir in your home, kde has a nice gui for installing fonts too see System Settings/Font Installer

    you can read this thread for more info

    that's not an error it's a warning that you don't have Chinese fonts, if you're not a Chinese user you can ignore it, if you need CJK fonts get some free fonts from here
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/cjkfonts
    or you can search google for Chinese font
