I try to type त्र in the browser It should appear as follows:

enter image description here

But what is visible to me is this: enter image description here

how do I fix this?

  • In which application(s) are you facing this issue? Font issue perhaps? Try changing the font. Also I don't know the exact usage, but if I'm not wrong, complex scripts like Arabic and Indic need the proper usage of zero-width joiner & zero-width non-joiner to render correctly. – pomsky Jan 10 '18 at 12:31
  • happens only in the browser and that too so far I have used on 14.04 and 16.04 and this issue only happens in 16.04 – Ekoji Jan 10 '18 at 12:35

    Then probably a font issue, see if this helps: askubuntu.com/questions/855739/… – pomsky Jan 10 '18 at 12:38

    @user68186 I don't it's the same issue. I believe OP is not asking for help with typing, but with incorrect font rendering. – pomsky Jan 10 '18 at 12:45
  • @user68186 I did not install any additional packages. This comes pre-installed and I never had problems before – Ekoji Jan 10 '18 at 12:50

For 16.04 LTS and above:

Go to System Settings...> Language Support > Install Languages and install Hindi.

This was not needed before. It was sufficient to just enable the keyboard layout to use Hindi fonts.

Hope this helps
