Hello Everybody. I am Archlinux user from Nepal. I need help to localize Archlinux according to the need of a typical Nepali user, such as support for nepali localization, SCIM input method and Nepali language support for Firefox and other programs. That's why I am here.
Hey which internet connection do you have which enables you to use archlinux which needs frequent downloads...
And is there support for nepali unicode..
Doesn't nepali use Devanagari? Devanagari is definitely available in unicode.
Intrepid (adj.): Resolutely courageous; fearless.
There is support for nepali language in arch linux. you can use archlinux and you can update offline. It's better than other linux distro.
I didn't knew there was a topic for nepali archlinux user ............. nice
obssesed with changing distros .......................... ArchLinux is my doctor.

Hi Guys. Seems i can't install from the latest iso. Getting Kernel panic while running pacstrap or even pacman -Syy . Any info about this guys ?
Wow, this thread has been silent for a really long time. Any current Archers from Nepal? I remember viewing this thread when I just started out with Arch. So, I encourage any new Nepali Arch users to post any problem or experiences here.
Common guys. Its about time we made this thread active again.

@subash seem like you are using gnome-terminal, gnome terminal doesn't support post render correction or multi-byte encoding. you might want to checkout other terminals. although there is the old project to make gnome-terminal do so but its very very old and buggy.

which program is that? to get the bbc news feed.

Got it 'community/newsbeuter 2.9-5'

It worked in Konsole. But I want it working in either termite or urxvt . I had tried with xfce4-terminal, urxvt( compiled with unicode support) but still doesnot work.

I tried with a bunch of terminals, but couldn'dt get it to work. so, thanks for update.
Btw, the feeds don't contain much substance besides a link to the article itself. how do you read it? what url are you using? or any settings you gotta tweak on newsbeuter?
Here's some more. https://newsinnepal.wordpress.com/2009/ … ews-sites/ .
For more feed, search 'nepali news' in http://ctrlq.org/rss/
Look here finally added onlinekhabar.

Thanks man. I'll probably never open it after a couple of weeks. but it is cool thing. LOL
Btw, turns out emacs is great at rendering unicode. I tried it on multi-term and ansi-term, both available in melpa, both render characters perfectly.
