Basically, you don't have good fonts, and that's the default on FC4 unfortunately :(. You need to install the FarsiWeb fonts package (available from http://farsiweb.info/) to start with. There is a fontconfig configuration file like this one: http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~behdad/fonts-persian.conf This will be included in fontconfig-2.4 release coming soon. > Some help is appreciated. > Thanks > Medi --behdad http://behdad.org/ "Commandment Three says Do Not Kill, Amendment Two says Blood Will Spill" -- Dan Bern, "New American Language" _______________________________________________ PersianComputing mailing list PersianComputing@lists.sharif.edu http://lists.sharif.edu/mailman/listinfo/persiancomputing
