Fonts installed, but don't work.


On my Mandrake Desktop, I installed the fonts fine with Drakfont and everything went smooth.

But, I can't see the webpage requiring the font.
Is there anything that I am missing?

I'm not sure about your question. What do you mean by "I can't see the webpage requiring the font?". Are you not being able to use those fonts with, for example, Firefox, when surfing the web?. Please, give us some examples

This is as just as horrible answer to as just as horrible question that you've started your thread with. I don't want to sound like a big mean, but unless you provide detailed info of what your problem is, such as: what you've done, what you are trying to do and what/where/how it's not working, we are just wasting our times. Read this:

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way then try to post again, in some understandable, detailed way

Fonts installed, but don't work.

Really sorry guys.
I read the stuff (was just too long....) and I will now try to post the smart way.





My problem is not with installing fonts.
My problem is making them work.

I have installed the Fonts using MCC in Mandrake.
Now, whenever I try to go to the web page, that requires that font to be installed, what i see is just gibberish.

Try This Link

This requires a "Marathi" font. (Marathi is a language.)
The Web Page should look like the PIC you can see on the upper left corner of the screen.(The RED one) The site will look like that when the font actually works.


How can I browse the site, with that language?

I have installed kde localization packages for tamil and hindi, but there are none(as far as i know) available for marathi. Try changing encoding in firefox (edit->Preferences->Languages) and add marathi in the languages list. Please provide detailed info on problems if you need detailed help...
