Hi there,

I see boxes instead of visible text in the native sailfish browser for a few websites. Is this a known bug?

Looks like the font doesn't have glyphs for the languages used. The 'box' means: There's a character, but I don't have a font installed that can display it properly.

I'd assume it's not a browser bug but a general, system wide issue that only becomes visible with web pages.

There's a package for Indian fonts in warehouse. Search for 'indian' there. That should help.

Hi,

It would be nice to have a fallback font on the system that would have all the glyphs from all fonts.. like Arial Unicode maybe?

Regards

A bit of repetitive answer, still thought will share some details.

https://together.jolla.com/question/61109/jolla-india-discussions/ - I had raised this earlier as well

Also, sent a request to dev mailing list on including Indian languages (officially) and Soumya Bijjal acknowledged it as an issue. https://lists.sailfishos.org/pipermail/devel/2015-February/005726.html

https://sailfishos.org/developmentroadmap/ has an update on Hindi keyboard getting implemented as well.

Hindi keyboard layout
