Installing Telugu fonts on Centos

I went to the thotaramudu's blog on my brand new laptop that my company gave me and the font was all funny. I am running Centos 5.2 and wanted to install the telugu font.

So, I did a quick search on yum repositories for telugu


[root@localhost ~]# yum search telugu

There are a couple I can use. So, I installed them.


[root@localhost ~]# yum install fonts-telugu.noarch m17n-db-telugu.noarch openoffice.org-langpack-te_IN.x86_64



Thats it. I restarted the firefox and its all Telugu now. :)

BTW, the openoffice language pack and the m17n-db fonts are optional. I just took them coz it didnt hurt and they are really light.
