Dear friends, I wander how to get Hindi / Sanskrit / Gujarati fonts in Open Office environment. Though in the available fonts' list (pull down menu) it shows some fonts seemingly for indian languages (e.g., Lohit Hindi, Lohit Tamil, Lohit Gujarati, gargi, padmaa, etc.) but changing to these fonts still writes in English only!! My system is: Debian 5.00, genome. Compaq CQ-45 Laptop.
Did you install the 2 hindi fonts I have attached with this issue before taking out the printouts? It happens that if I open the two hindi documents using an english font in Open Office Writer for e.g. Arial, we get these english junk english characters in place of hindi characters. Anyway, I tested the same hindi documents (I have. Type Font Printing Problems in Windows. Installation or printing problems may occur in Windows because of. Windows in use today.

Is there any step I miss here? Better if guided in step-by-step operations! Is there any other way possible to get such typing possible? Installing Asterisk On Synology.

If you want to write in Hindi/Gujrati, You need to change the input method.
You can use SCIM Or Ibus. A small incon will appear at system bar. Go to properties and then add indic languages. -- ┌─────────────────────────┐ │ Narendra Sisodiya ( नरेन्द्र सिसोदिया ) │ Web: │ Twitter: └─────────────────────────┘ gajendra 05:11. I normally use KDE. Will mention the procedure for that incase someone's interested:- 1. Open Control Center.
Go to Regional & Accessibility->Keyboard Layout. Click on Enable Keyboards radio button. Select India on left panel (Available layouts) and click on add.
This will cause a new India layout to come in active layouts on the right. In the layout variants you can choose 'deva' (if you want standard hindi keyboard) or 'bolnagri' (if you want phonetic hindi keyboard, which I prefer since its easy). Once this is done the KDE Keyboard Layout tool shall be available in your system tray. Whenever you need to type in Hindi select the appropriate hindi layout. Once thats done you can type in Hindi in all softwares supporting hindi unicode including Open Office. If you want hindi fonts ttf-devanagri package should be installed. Its possible to do similarly in GNOME also where you have a switcher applet which you can add to your desktop.

May be this can help, Sharad Birmiwal 11:37. Thanks to all of you for such a fast response! I used the 'bolnagari' keyboard layout as suggested by Gajendra and it works fine in Open Office. But still I am interested in trying SCIM and/or iBus too. I could install SCIM but it did not show any of the Indic language Keyboard layout in its pull down menu. I don't know what I miss! IBus seems more interesting from the dialog between Narendra and Sharad.
But a search could not find it in my list of packages. What line need I add in the repositories?
