I sometimes edit text in telugu language. However, when I open the file (UTF-8 encoded) in GNU emacs (version 18.104.22.168 on Ubuntu Jaunty) the text rendering is incorrect. The same text file opened in gedit is rendered correctly.
Here's a snippet: ప్రకృతికి ఉదయం అంటే ఇష్టమేమో rendred in gedit:
And, the emacs rendering of the same text:
Wherever glyphs need to be composited (not sure if it's the right word), emacs (or whatever library it uses) is not doing it right.
Is there anyway to fix this? Perhaps tuning some setting in my configuration? Any ideas, please?
