Bengali language support in mozilla-firefox
i can't enable pango in firefox. the doc says that i need to recompile mozilla-firefox with "--enable-pango" option.
so at first i gave apt-get source mozilla-firefox
then cd to debian folder and edit the rules add the --enable-pango \ option
then dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot. then i get mozilla-firefox deb. i
have installed it but still i can't see the Bengali correctly.
(it also says, i need to give export MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO=1 while running mozilla)
the mozilla firefox problem it Debian (i have select utf-8 and Bengali font)
it should look like this picture (gedit show bengali nicely)
i have found a website giving pango enabled deb. i have tried with this package but it is not working in my Sid. it says
"Linux: These changes include the patch to be found on the TA Linux site.
Unlike the TA Linux patch, this patch turns pango on by default
(overridden by environment setting MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO=0). Note that
ships a version of Firefox with Pango support (switch on with 'export
MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO=1'), but it does not render Hebrew as well as this
is it possible to get pango enabled mozilla-firefox officially from Debian.
or give me some hint what i need to do, to enable Bengali in mozilla-firefox in Debian
