Test Google Fonts for Gurmukhi Script (Punjabi) – Prepare

Testing Google (not limited to) fonts with Linux. UTRRS is tool, which I am going to use to compare feature and verify shapes.

Google Noto Fonts: http://www.google.com/get/noto

Gurmukhi Fonts: http://www.google.com/get/noto/#/family/noto-sans-guru

Download from here: http://www.google.com/get/noto/pkgs/NotoSansGurmukhi-hinted.zip

Which font to selected – Note for Developer:

Use unhinted fonts for Android and Mac (Android and Mac ignore hinting information embedded in fonts).
Use hinted fonts for other platforms.

1. Unzip file

2. install

$  sudo cp NotoSansGurmukhi* /usr/share/fonts/google-noto/
$ fc-cache /usr/share/fonts/google-noto/

3. Confirm if it is working for your Script

$ fc-list |grep Gurmukhi
/usr/share/fonts/google-noto/NotoSansGurmukhi-Bold.ttf: Noto Sans Gurmukhi:style=Bold
/usr/share/fonts/google-noto/NotoSansGurmukhiUI-Bold.ttf: Noto Sans Gurmukhi UI:style=Bold
/usr/share/fonts/google-noto/NotoSansGurmukhiUI-Regular.ttf: Noto Sans Gurmukhi UI:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/google-noto/NotoSansGurmukhi-Regular.ttf: Noto Sans Gurmukhi:style=Regular

4. Open UTRRS: http://utrrs-testing.rhcloud.com/

5. Select Language from Left

UTRRS_Testing_1

6. Add font name in “Please enter font family name” (same as Bold text in Step 3)

UTRRS_Testing_2

 

Now you are ready to do Testing for Fonts with UTRRS.
