Malayalam font

Filed under: Tools — Tags: , , — shijitht @ 12:44 am

We could hardly understand words of a Malayalam site. The problem is lack of correct font. For example go to manoramaonline. At the first look, you will close it. As many of our doubts, googling resolves it. But many consider it a huge effort, I don’t know why ?.

You get a Malayalam font, double-click and press install. Manorama.ttf is at the bottom. If fails or something unexpected happens, go ahead with following commands. As root

# mkdir /usr/share/fonts/manorama
# cp  Manorama.ttf /usr/share/fonts/manorama
# fc-cache  -fv

First we created a folder manorama in font directory(/usr/share/fonts/). Then copied Manorama.ttf font to that. The third command updated font information cache files. Restart your browser to start reading in mother-tang.

Click to download Manorama.ttf
