[OPEN] Devanagari font issue in terminal

Post by Imruf Arko » Mon Sep 30, 2019 2:56 pm

Learned KDE konsole can perfectly render devanagari text. Installed konsole on my arcolinux-xfce-minimal. But the result is like the first screenshot. To chek it up i boot into a live linux-mint-xfce and install konsole on the live environment and the result is perfect for the same file (2nd screenshot). So question is what additional font settings am i missing here on my arco/arch system?

Dolphin and termite are two different terminals.

What did you use in each case?

I am on xfce. I just installed kde konsole and its required dependency to see if a can view devanagari (Bengali font in my case) text with perfect rendering in terminal.

the second image is what you want to achieve and that is not on Arch Linux / ArcoLinux right ?
What did you install so I can replicate things?

This is not my cup of tea.

So if anyone can pitch in.

This also can be usefull:

Did you try this, open a terminal and use the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo yay -S ttf-indic-otf

Yes. It's not a missing font issue, as you see in the first image the fonts are displaying, but the complex conjunctions are not rendering perfectly. But in linux mint it is. So i think there must be some kind of font settings that i am missing here.
