Scribus > Text and Typography

Primarily configure Bangla / Bengali texts


Salim Reza Newton:
I learnt from a post ( by muhammodmasum that "Now Bengali text is working ok" in Scribus.

That is a great news for someone like me, a newbie.

But, as a newbie I don't find how to primarily configure Bangla / Bengali texts in Scribus.

Someone please help me in this regard.

Thank you.


you need two things:

- scribus 1.5.4+ (the development version... how to get it, depends on your computer)
- a  font with the needed glyphs.

then, it should just work...


Salim Reza Newton:
OMG, it's working now! 
I've been waiting for this day for the last few years.

Thank you very very much a.l.e.

Today I downloaded the Development Version 1.5.4 as per your suggestion and discovered it's working.

Is there any risk in using this version? May I confidently begin creating a book with this version of Scribus?

Well, I'm using Linux Mint 18.


Somehow I missed the notification and thought no one replied to my message. What a fool I am. Sorry pal, for this foolishness.
