    Default Geetham Tamil fonts in Linux

    This may not be a complete fool-proof method, but this is how I set it up on my gentoo box.

    I installed firefox prior to doing to the font install.

    Download this tarball of indic fonts (will include tamil, kannada, malayalam, oriya fonts etc.). Unpack the tarball using:

    Code:
    tar -xzvf ttf-indic-fonts_0.4.8.tar.gz
    The above process creates a folder ttf-indic-fonts_0.4.8 in the current folder. That folder shud contain different font folders for the different indic languages.

    After this I created a folder indicfonts under /usr/share/fonts

    Code:
    mkdir /usr/share/fonts/indicfonts
    For the following steps, login as the superuser from a terminal.

    Then copy the fonts you need to this folder. Just the .ttf and .TTF files are to be copied. Do not copy the folder tree here, probably that'll require some more additional work of doing an mkfontdir for each of the folders (somebody confirm!). Anyways I did copying the files under one folder.

    Then change directory to the folder where you have copied all the fonts and execute the following:

    Code:
    chown root:root *.ttf
    mkfontscale
    mkfontdir
    fc-cache
    Your font install is done. Now you have to restart your GUI. Close all your applications as this process will log you off. Now do a Ctrl-alt-Backspace. This will restart you X server and shows your display manager to relogin. Now you should be able to see the unicode tamil.

    I think Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu automate this process when you select the indic fonts package to install from your package manager.

    This is just a preliminary attempt from me. Do post your comments or problems.
    I know I know I know I know I know I know I know
