Google: farsi fonts linux
There are several promising hits

Also, I checked in my package manager (Synaptic on Mepis) and found several relevant things--including

kde-i18n-fa (Farsi (Persian) internationalized (i18n) files for KDE)

openoffice.org-i10n-fa (Farsi language package for OpenOffice.org)

ttf-farsiweb (FarsiWeb free TrueType Farsi fonts)

Sorry--you misunderstood my post. I don't have any files.

I gave you a hint on searching Google

I told you that my package manager found some things that looked useful. The next step is to try YOUR package manager.

Also, try searching Google using the specific package names that I found.

finally, please tell us what distro you are using

Good luck indeed...this thread has been closed for SIX YEARS. Also, you don't say what version/distro of Linux your answer is supposed to apply to.
