Nepali Fonts working in LInux

Recommended Posts

Try this once and see what happens

 

1. Get your Windows fonts from your Windows box or partition and slap them somewhere in the Linux filesystem -(Do you have partition on your computer??)

 

I've chosen /usr/local/share/fonts (this assumes that your windows partition is in /mnt/windows and windows is installed in C:\windows)

 

(OR TRY COPYING NEPALI FONT ON THE DISKETTE AND SAVE IT ON YOUR DEBIAN BOX AS SHOWN IN ABOVE FOLDER)

 

mkdir -p /usr/local/share/fonts

cp /mnt/windows/windows/fonts/verd* /mnt/windows/windows/fonts/ari* /usr/local/share/fonts

 

2. Assuming YOUR debian is usinf XFS

Edit /etc/X11/fs/config, adding the path you've used to the "catalogue" section thus:

 

catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,

(loads of other stuff chopped)

/usr/share/fonts/ttf/NEPALI FONT,

/usr/local/share/fonts/ttf This line added

 

3. Set up the fonts directory with an index (used by the font server to determine whcih font is which) ----(recognise nepali font)

 

mkttfdir /usr/local/share/fonts/ttf

 

4. Restart xfs

 

/etc/init.d/xfs restart

 

5. Close and reopen your browser if necessary

 

 

see if the magic works smile.gif

Thanx for the detailed help.

Do I need to start a ttf- server, or is the standard xfs- server enough to make use of the fonts?
