Last night, I've installed Nepali keyboard layout on my Ubuntu 20.04 and I tested it, it worked as expected. But, today when I switched on PC back I am getting this screen. I have tried removing the layout and rebooting PC but it didn't helped.

Pictures of the problem:

  • At login screen type any keys and then click on eye icon.. Thats gives a clue if your login screen language is English or someother.. – UnKNOWn Aug 14 at 11:25
  • It shows just blocks. Like in the image shown. – Aakura Pyakura Aug 14 at 11:59
  • Ok can you logon via tty? press CTRL+ALT+F3 or F4 or F5.. can you logon there? – UnKNOWn Aug 14 at 12:10
  • Yes I can login to tty and I have tried a solution as this one 'sudo fc-cache -vf' but in tty I can go no further because idk how to use tty. – Aakura Pyakura Aug 14 at 12:15
  • Ok when you logon via tty.. can you run this command nano /etc/default/keyboard. It will show you the file contents.. post those.. – UnKNOWn Aug 14 at 12:19

Problem is solved. I had installed like 20 Nepali fonts following a tutorial on web which suggested to simply copy all .ttf and .otf files to /usr/local/share/fonts/sample folder (even if there is no sample folder and creating one). And deleting the sample folder worked.

Thanks UnKNOWn for all the help.
