I have installed Ubuntu Touch 14.10 in my Nexus 4. Everything is working fine except rendering of Tamil fonts. I cannot read Tamil websites in any application like shorts and browser.

I tried installing the language-pack-ta and language-pack-gnome-ta. But I am getting errors saying unable to locate these packages. I have tried running apt-get update and apt-get upgrade first, but it's still not working. Can someone help me to install these language packs?

    Sounds like you need e.g. the ttf-tamil-fonts package rather than the language packs. But I'm not sure if you can easily install it yourself on Ubuntu Touch. Possibly you should file a bug where you ask that tamil fonts are included by default. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Feb 17 '15 at 13:16
  • Thanks. I am managed to install ttf-tamil-fonts and now it is working properly. – user220366 Feb 18 '15 at 8:41
  • Great! I wrote it as an answer as well, which you then can accept to show that the issue has been resolved. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Feb 18 '15 at 10:09
