Sub_title: How to configure puppy linux to support Indian languages!

In the following guide I'll show you how to read 'n' write in Hindi in Puppy Linux.
*** This guide has been tested on Precise Puppy but should work on other version too...

Steps to read Hindi:

    1.Download any Hindi TTF font like Mangal, Lohit hindi,code2000 etc (KrutiDev will not work as it has different layout than the standard Hindi layout).
    2.Move this .ttf file to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF folder.
    3.Either restart X or type fc-cache in terminal.

If you reload this page, you should be able to read this (else you will see boxes).
हिंदी हमारी मातृभाषा है ।

Steps to write Hindi:

    1.Go to Menu >Setup > Keyboard/Mouse Wizard.
    2.Click on "Advanced Xorg keyboard configuration..."
    3.In the "main" tab, click on Layouts and then on Add.
    4.In the list select India and click OK. Again the main tab click on "Yes".
    5.In "Options" tab, click on "Group shift/lock behavior".
    6.In the list select the key combination of your choice, I prefer Alt+Shift. (This key combination will be used to toggle keyboard layout, i.e. writing language). Click OK.
    7.Finally press "yes" and close the XKB Configuration Manager.

Now you should be able to write in Hindi. If not so press the key combination you chose above. If still no success, try restarting X.
Hope it helps...
