[Solved] UTF-8 Fonts for Indian Languages

Post#1 by bdheeman » 08 Oct 2013, 00:15

What do I need to install UTF-8 Fonts for Indian Languages, so that I may view Wikipedia pages and, or Google's search pages in most of supported Indian languages.

BUGS:
I can't view and, or read the Indian language pages of Google, Wikipedia and other such sites in respective languages due to the boxes shown instead of the needful characters.

REPEAT:
Please check/click https://www.google.co.in/ and try clicking any of the Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam and, or Punjabi options.

Thanks, that module solved the problem.

It, however was strange that this module is not enabled on kiosk version.
