সালাম, আনেকেরই বিভিন্ন কারনে ফায়ারফক্স বা অনান্য ব্রাউজারে বাংলা ফন্ট ভেঙ্গে যায়। উইন্ডোজে সাধারনত অভ্র ইন্সটল বা আপগ্রেড করা ছাড়াও বিভিন্ন কারনে ফন্ট ভাঙ্গা ভাঙ্গা আসে। অনেক লিনাক্স ভ্যারিয়েন্টেও এই সমস্যা দেখা যায়। সাধারনত ব্রাউজার নতুন ভাবে ইন্সটল করা বাংলা ফন্ট ঠিকমত চিনতে পারে না বলে এমনটা হয়ে থাকে। এটা ব্যবহারকারীর না ফন্ট এরই ত্রুটি(বাগ)বলা চলে। এই ধরেন সমস্যার সমাধান হচ্ছে ম্যানুয়্যালি ব্রাউজার কে আপনার পছন্দের বাংলা ফন্ট টি চিনিয়ে দেয়া। এর জন্যে নীচের ধাপ গুলি অনুসরন করুনঃ
১। প্রথমে ফায়ারফক্স চালু করে Options এ যান এবং Content ট্যাব সিলেক্ট করুন।
২। ট্যাবে থাকা একমাত্র Advanced অপশানটি সিলেক্ট করুন।
৩।অতঃপর Fonts for থেকে Bengali নির্বাচন করুন। এবং বাকি অংশ গুলো নিচের ছবির মত করুন।
উলেখ্যঃ আমি কালপুরুষ ফন্ট ব্যাবহার করেছি, আপনি আপনার পছন্দের ফন্ট ব্যবহার করতে পারেন। তবে Proportional অংশে Serif অপরিবর্তিত রাখবেন।
এই নিয়মটি আমার নিজের প্রায় সকল মেশিনে এবং কিছু বন্ধুর মেশিন(পিসি) এ কাজ করেছে। আপনার কোন অসুবিধা হলে জানাবেন।
In my last post I’ve said that I was talking with Noor vi for a Webmaker event in my school, Horimohan Govt. High School. But I didn’t even know when Noor vi contacted with Istiaque, a Mozillian, and organized an event of awareness campaign in Imperial Polytechnic Institute,one of the leading privet polytechnic institutes here.
Istiaque vi was in-charge of getting the permission from the Imperial authority while I’d to manage my school’s authority. Noor vi sent us the applications for asking for the permission and fixed 28 and 29 August for the events. We talked with the authorities and managed them to agree with our proposed date.
Noor vi and OS shuvo vi, the Mozillians who would attend the event, reached Chapainawabganj on 28 Aug @6 AM. They stayed @Hotel Al-Nahid. The hotel and the venue of first event was in 2minutes distance.
The first event was @2pm. Noor vi and OS Shubho vi were tired so they rested in the hotel while Istiaque vi managed the banner and stage setup at the first venue, Imperial. At around 1pm Istiaque vi called me hurriedly and asked to join them immediately @hotel. So I did so. When I reached Noor vi was busy in finalizing his presentation with Popcornmaker. After sometimes Istiaque vi reminded me of calling Aminul vi. So I phoned him and asked to join us. In a short time He joined us too. Then came Jibon vi and his friend. We cut joke at Jibon vi as he mixed Firefox OS with Android! For around half an hour we had a lot of fun. Soon we realized that we were late for the event as it was already 2. We left the hotel for the venue but we were empty stomached! We hadn’t eaten our lunch!
We reached the venue and the people there introduced us with their students. Then Noor vi gave a short entry and started playing the movie “code_rush” and went to eat 😛
After sometimes the team came back and Noor vi started talking full-on!! He covered a wide area. Starting from Mozilla products to how Mozilla works and why. When Noor vi talked about the products of Mozilla, we found that many of them only thought that Mozilla only markets Firefox Browser. From Noor vi’s speech they came to know about Persona, Thunderbird and Firefox OS. Noor vi made them aware of their “rights” to the web and made some privacy concerns clear. Noor vi also mad ethe point clear that how Mozilla helps the web to be a better place and why they should contribute to Mozilla and help to do the good stuff faster. Some of the people listening to Noor vi were confused about how Mozilla manage to run the whole company and what is the fund source of Mozilla. Noor vi cleared how Mozilla earns and why we should work for Mozilla claiming no fees. Then he showed the real power of HTML, the mighty Firefox OS installed in Keon. People got interested in that phone so much because even though it’d a small amount of memory it rocked! Specially, Aminul vi liked it. Noor vi talked and answered many questions. Then Shubho vi went on stage and detailed localizaton. He described why we should work in the localization sector and how to work in there. After Shubho vi’s speech Istiaque vi explained how add-ons can be used to make life easier. Then we distributed mozilla stickers and the Imperial authority distributed snaks. After taking a group photo the event was over.
You guys maybe wondering where was I all the time??? Okay, I was behind the camera taking snaps through the event. 😀
Now the best part: You all may know that 28 August was a public holiday and students become lazy on holidays. So how we managed to organize the event? Well, thanks goes to Istiaque vi. He made the Imperial authority to phone students and ask them to join the event 🙂 because it was the authority’s fault taht they didn’t mentioned the holiday.
In the north of Bangladesh Chapainawabganj is an important district with a really great historical value. The best high school here is Horimohan Govt High School. I’m a proud student of this school.
For a couple of months I’m seeing Noor vi organizing events on Webmaker. I became quite interested. I started talking with him and he agreed to organize one in my school. After getting the permission of school authority we fixed the date to 29 August, 2013. We reached the venue @9AM on the fixed date and hoisted the banner for the event. Then the students who were interested in that event started coming as they were notified about the event two days earlier. Soon we’re out of seat for any new guy. I can still remember that me and one of my friend were standing and enjoying whatever Noor vi was saying. The speech and the presentation was so charming that we two couldn’t realize that we both passed two hours standing!
In the event Noor vi talked about Popcorn Maker and Thimble. The students were really interested in these tools, specially in Popcorn Maker. We, the Mozilla team, had a lot of response from the young people of my school. Many became interested in joining us. Interested people contacted me latter for the tools and how to install them. Some of them went a step further and asked for a complete tutorial.
That was a successful event. Our goal was to make new devs and we did so. I can still remember the crowd screaming for Webmaker t-shirts but we could manage only 3. Hope we’ll get some future contributors from there.
