Smile How to read local languages (Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, Devanagari (including Marathi)

In Ubuntu 10.10 by default web browser is Mozilla fire fox web browse is using for internet browsing.

parma 0.4.15
[ WHAT IS PADMA PLUGGING :-P adma is a technology for transforming Indic text between
public and proprietary formats. The technology currently supports Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil,
Devanagari (including Marathi), Gujarati, Bengali, and Gurmukhi.
Indic scripts suffer from lack of standards support in various OS and platforms. As a result, many
public and proprietary schemes have been adopted over time by different groups and businesses.
Padma's goal is to bridge the gap between closed and open standards until the day Unicode support
is widely available on all platforms.
Padma transforms Indic text encoded in proprietary formats (ex: dynamic fonts) automatically to
Unicode. Padma also has support for transforming from ISCII and transliteration schemes like
ITRANS and RTS (Telugu only). ]
or go to this link
and now just click in +Add to Fire Fox it will open a window called
Install add-one only from authors whom you trust
press install now button
after installation is over it will ask for restart web browser
if you want to see how it is working for Exp:- type a Telugu new paper URL that is www.eenadu.ent
and see how it is opening and read you local language paper and enjoy
