Hindi Support for absent when I first Installed Arch Linux and Few Arch based Distro Like Antergos, The default browser in case of Antergos Chromium doesn’t have support for Hindi Fonts / Devnagri Scripts. So while browsing we often see Rectangular Boxes in Browser in case we encounter Hindi Fonts.

Here is the Fix.
How to Add Support for Hindi fonts in Arch Linux and Antergos or another Arch based distro.

Open terminal

Type the following command and press enter

sudo yaourt -S ttf-indic-otf


Now provide the root password and let the install finish.

After this restart the system for changes to take effect.

Now Hindi Fonts are visible in Chrome or Firefox.
