I have this font that I want to use for Amharic/Ethiopic, while leaving the default for other characters, notably Latin. The problem is my Ubuntu OS seem to have a random way of choosing from among the numerous Ethiopic fonts I have installed. I don't wan't to choose my preferred Ethiopic font as the system default either as I don't like the Latin characters it has. Any advice on how I can manipulate or configure this?
