So, ttf-bpg-georgian is the first GPL Georgian (Non Indoeuropean
Language, with own aplphabet)
fonts pack (ka) provided for GNOME/KDE Desktop environments. (Special
thank to Matthew Garrett).
Without this pack, there is no native Georgian support for ubuntu.
There are only 3 fonts: BPG_Chveulebrivi.ttf BPG_Courier.ttf
BPG_Glaho.ttf - is most sutable font for Georgian GNOME/KDE, but afret
installing ttf-bpg-georgian .deb package,
Default font becomes BPG_Chveulebrivi.ttf, which is very ugly ,non
usable, with huge spaces.
(usable for typing only) and BPG_Courier.ttf is sutable only for
The unic solution that I know to solve this problem is to rename
BPG_Glaho.ttf to AAABPG_Glaho.ttf, then do
"fc-cache" so AAABPG_Glaho.ttf becomes important then
BPG_Chveulebrivi.ttf and becomes default font for interface.
As non programmer I don't know howto solve this problem with other
- Why this change is so important to You ?
Because BPG_Glaho.ttf, is the unic usable (GPL) font for GNOME
interface, other fonts ar not usable at all.
Thank You for complaining !

P.S It will be great if Dapper will have georgian support (at least
this 2 fonts are enough to support whole GNOME interface and writing adds:
