Ubuntu: Firefox doesn't render Dravidian scripts (Telugu, Tamil, etc.) in 16.04



Question:

I upgraded to 16.04 and all Dravidian pages (in Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu) have become blank rectangles. No problem with the Nagari-based North Indian languages (Hindi, etc.). The other laptop still running Ubuntu 15.10 has no such problem. Any idea what I can do?


Solution:1

Go to System Settings and in Language Support check the mentioned languages

Solution:2

In my case it fixed just after installing indic fonts. You can install that specific package by

sudo apt-get install fonts-indic  

or even shorter

sudo apt install fonts-indic  


Solution:3

Just follow this link How to Set telugu fonts clearly in mozilla firefox

you can add any language
