Bangla Problem?

How to view and type Bangla?
There are several ways for that, I am providing the simplest one.
It requires an internet connection and I think all of us already have it. :P

Step 01

Just download and install “I-COMPLEX”.
Click here to download “i-complex” for installing Bangla Support.

Click here to download i-complex (for installing Bangla Support)

This is enough to only view Bangla correctly. (you might need to restart the pc)

Step 02

Download any Bangla unicode font:
“BNG” from here or “Rupali” from here
or download any other bangla unicode font from here

Copy and paste them to “C:\windows\fonts”or “control panel\fonts” folder to view bangla in the web pages.

Step 03

To write bangla anywhere, download and install the “Avro” software from here. (you might need to restart the pc)

Step 04

Run “Avro” and press “F12” and type something. Voila! I think u will be writing in Bangla by that time.
There are several modes to write bangla.
Easiest way is to Select “Avro Phonetic” from the menu of AVRO KEYBOARD.
Write anywhere “ami banglay gan gai”,
it will be automatically typed
(Mane, english e “ami banglay gan gai” likhle bangla te “” lekha hobe just like below.

There are also some other available Methods including typing with traditional keyboard layouts (Bijoy or Unijoy) and some other. See for yourself below:

  2. From this window click on “Fonts”
  3. Click on the drop down list for “Language Scripts” and select “Bengali” from this drop down list (you may have to scroll up to locate it)

This completes your setup for firefox.

  2. On the “Minor Tweaks” tab, click on “Change font and language settings” button
  3. On the “Fonts and Languages” dialogue box, click on “Fonts and Encoding” tab
  4. Select any bangla font (BNG of SolaimanLipi) as “Serif” and “Sans-serif” fonts
  5. Select “Unicode (utf-8)” as the “Default Encoding”
  6. Click OK and Click Close

Safari

  1. Open Safari, Goto Edit>Preferences
  2. Click on Appearance
  3. On the Standard Font and Fixed-Width Font, Select Solaimanlipi in both Fields and Leave the font size as it was
  4. Click on Default Encoding, and select Unicode (UTF-8) and close the box
  5. Restart Safari

Note: I am not sure how “i-complex” is doing in MAC OSX operating systems.
If MAC supports Unicode and Complex Scripts, then you can see Bangla from Safari on MAC pc.
If “i-complex” is already installed in Windows pc, you can view www.cadetcollegeblog.com correctly with the Safari (for windows) browser, as i can see it now. :{

OK ALL DONE.
