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.
Download and install
Update the package index:
and refresh your browser. This works fine for me.
