Proper rendering of Indic fonts in Ubuntu Breezy

Suraj N. Kurapati

Thanks to Soumyadip Modak in the IndLinux mailing list, I finally learned how to enable proper rendering of Indic fonts in Ubuntu. Now I can read Telugu text on the Web like I used to with Fedora Core 2, 3, and 4.

The problem was that some low quality Indic fonts in the ttf-freefont package were being used by Pango to render Indic text. So, remove the ttf- freefont package and you’re back in business!
