I am trying to get the kannada font support for Android ICS. I rooted my Xperia Neo L phone which is running Android ICS 4.0.4 and installed Kannada font (Lohit-Kannada.ttf). I have also included the Lohit-Kannada font as family-set in fallback_fonts.xml in the framework. After that, I am able to see the kannada fonts render in browser but the complex script is not supported. Glyphs are not rendered in proper way, though it is just readable. Other indic languages like Tamil, Hindi, Bengali etc renders perfectly but my language is not rendering properly.

Someone suggested me to go thru this blog. But i'm not able to find out where to make those file changes. I mean where is that lohit-fonts directory, where is the android.mk file? I'm not able to find those folders or those files in my phone. Any help please?

I guess a look at How to make an Android device to display complex rendering of Indic characters? might prove helpful :) –  Izzy Apr 20 '13 at 13:36
    
I have a doubt. Other indic languages like Tamil, Hindi, Bengali etc renders perfectly but my language is not rendering properly. Is that a font problem? –  Sagar Raj Apr 21 '13 at 2:06

For websites not having web fonts use firefox for android and then get addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/android/addon/kannada-fonts-package. Now you can view all webpages in Kannada fonts without any complex procedure or root.

Looking at that link it appears that you may be the developer of the addon. It's OK to recommend your own work on this site, provided you're honest about it. Please edit your answer to confirm what relationship (if any) you have with this addon. –  bmdixon Nov 12 at 8:52
