Comment 1 Pravin Satpute 2012-07-26 10:41:12 EDT
missing characters in fonts as per kn.orth file
1. U+0C8C
2. U+0CE1

Hi Shankar,

  Do we need these characters in Kannada language?
Comment 2 Shankar Prasad 2012-07-27 02:32:07 EDT

As per current usage of Kannada script, I don't see any relevance of these characters.

There are couple of more characters which can also be omitted.

Comment 3 Pravin Satpute 2012-07-27 06:57:36 EDT
Thanks Shankar for your comment.
do you have any reference document showing complete set required for writing Kannada language?
Comment 4 Aravinda 2012-08-11 02:36:54 EDT

Thanks Pravin and Shankar. 

Fixed the Bug by adding missing glyphs. Updated the Git repository. 


For fedora packaging tar.gz

git clone https://github.com/aravindavk/Navilu.git
cd Navilu
make fedora

This will generate navilu-1.2.tar.gz and navilu-ttf-1.2.tar.gz in /tmp/ directory as per the Fedora requirements. 

Let me know if any changes required.

Comment 5 Pravin Satpute 2012-08-13 11:07:33 EDT
