Displaying international characters in Firefox (installing unicode fonts in fontconfig)

Using unicode fonts is the easiest way to properly display hindi, arabic, hebrew and other non latin languages. We install the unicode fonts in a local directory and then tell fontconfig to look in that directory. Edit /etc/fonts/local.conf


/usr/ias/share/fonts/fc
Then tell fontconfig to rehash it's tables
[root@host] # fc-cache
Check that your new font is there
[root@host] # fc-list |grep
