Ubuntu – Urdu fonts not rendering properly in Chrome


Chrome in Ubuntu is not rendering Urdu fonts properly. It is showing gibberish characters I'm not able to read. The problem is especially bad on Facebook.

I copied some Urdu fonts under ~/.fonts and under /usr/share/fonts/ and updated the cache and then restarted Chrome but even that didn't work.

This is how it is appearing on my system


I have installed MSCore fonts and many other fonts but it's still not working.

Best Answer

Download and install nafees-urdu fonts.

Update the package index:

sudo apt-get update

Install the fonts-nafees package:

sudo apt-get install fonts-nafees

and refresh your browser. This works fine for me.
