Read Telugu in Mac OS X

There are two popular fonts available in Telugu – Lohit Font and Pothana Font. Lohit font doesn’t seem to work with Mac OS X (Let me know if it works for you), Whereas, Pothana font works with Mac. Here is how you can read telugu on Mac OS X.

You need to download Pothana Font from here. And Extract to your Font folder of your home directory – ~/Library/Fonts. Make sure that you don’t have any other telugu fonts (Lohit or Pothana) installed at /Library/Fonts and ~/Library/Fonts, If present delete them.

or Enter these command in your Terminal App to install Pothana Font (Or do it manually as mentioned above) –
$ wget
$ mv Pothana.ttf ~/Library/Fonts

You need to restart the application (for example browser) to take effect.

To get eenadu font on Mac OS X –

$ wget
$ mv eenadu.ttf ~/Library/Fonts

    would like to be able to create documents in telugu on mac. so far all the programs involve complicated steps difficult for people who are not computer savvy. windows 2000, and xp had versions of Telugu lipi editor, nothing for windows 7. tried aksharamala, not very user friendly. Sirigina’s telugu lipi editor was excellent  but  to my knowledge, not available for windows 7 or mac. i saw a post which says it is available for iPhone. does it work for mac or windows 7? Dr.Rao
