Solaris & Tamil - Part II
By sivakumar on Jan 31, 2006
More updates. I have, with the help of OpenSolaris/Sun folks, have successfully created a Tamil locale for Solaris (10). Now, I can set the locale (in my .dtprofile) to ta_IN.UTF-8 and can see the GNOME (JDS) desktop in Tamil (well most of it).
Though I see a similar rendering issue in GNOME terminal. (swapping of characters), while all other apps (panel on menu items, metacity on window titles) seem to render them okay.
Next step is to get the X11/Openwin part of the localisation, I guess.
Contains: Gedit with a Tamil text, Firefox (built with --enable-pango), Run dialog, GNOME-terminal (compare the date output with the one on the panel on top).
