hi all,

i am working on running indic unicode in linux ( not in popular linux

what i did is:

installed using localedef, installed our keymapping etc etc.

now when i open terminal from Gnome. i can see and type devnagari
characters with no problem.

NOw my problem is:

When i type in Gedit. i guess pango is not rendering. Rectangle boxes
comes when i type.

So.. do i need X font server for this ?

Do i need True type font??
yeah, to be precise Opentype font.
if you are using Redhat or Mandrake you can install the indic font rpm
or install the devanagari otf available from
(above rpm includes this font)
