Help me in getting a font to work

Postby faisal » 2019-09-02 05:16

Hello good people.
I have an Arabic font that I can't make it works in debian (or any other distro), I attached a photo from the font preview in gnome fonts utility
Here is a link to the font: https://mega.nz/#!gtRXxKAR!ai6D7vmCMjtYJmrCyvT-IoAGp5L598-WWlVQD4FAr7g

it's not the ONLY arabic font with this issue, but I'm hoping if the issue was solved in this one it will be solved in the other fonts. (not ALL arabic fonts have this issue some on them work with not problem)

I will appreciate your help

It doesn't work for me either. Maybe there's something wrong with the font.

I tried downloading the font from multiple sources, but that didn't help.

as a side note: I couldn't make this font to work on linux or mac, it only worked for me with windows.

I don't know anything about Arabic, but what about this one:

Thank you, I already have it installed, but it's a nice font and works just fine.
