Nepali character or text display issue in Ubuntu.
30 Aug 2020 1 min
With the default installation of ubuntu, Nepali script and character will not render properly in Chrome/Chromium or any other browser.
While working with one of my web project, I notice character written in nepali in web application is not displaying correctly. I though it was issue with project itself. But later realized other device Android Phone and Window PC render the website correctly. After wondering for a while, finally realized my device is configure properly to support this script.
I solve it by installing some package from ubuntu repository:
firefox-locale-ne- Nepali language pack for Firefox
fonts-deva-extra- Free fonts for Devanagari script
language-pack-gnome-ne- GNOME translation updates for language Nepali
language-pack-gnome-ne-base- GNOME translations for language Nepali
language-pack-ne- translation updates for language Nepali
language-pack-ne-base- translations for language Nepali
