Tutorial Adding Punjabi(Gurmukhi) font to android

Angry on boxes in facebook,twitter etc. instead of Punjabi?

well some solutions r here:

If you don't want to root your phone then
option 1= install peacock browser form market(free). (tried on Motorola DEFY)

Option 2=install opera {didn't try this option}
1. Type "opera:config"(or try "configpera" or "about:config") in address bar.
2. Scroll down and look for 'Use bitmap fonts for complex scripts' and select yes.
3. Click save.
4. Enjoy

These two options are only limited to these browsers,you need to open the fb,twitter etc. in these browsers.

option 3 {using it on Moto DEFY CM 7.2}

1. Root your phone. (will void your warranty) try this step at your own risk
2. Download 'FX' from market.
3. Download 'DroidSansFallback.ttf.zip' attached file to your sd card.
5. Open fx explorer and locate your file,exract it, copy the font, go to /System/Fonts, then replace {backup this original file to sd card} already existing DroidSansFallback.ttf with the copied file. make sure you click on Lock Icon(in top right corner} before you paste font in fonts directory.
6. 'Permissions' should be rw-r-r.(to easily see this,change the view to list}
otherwise long click on copied file,select permissions.
7.exit the app.
8.immediately Reboot your phone and enjoy.

To write in Punjabi,
install Gurmukhi Keyboard from market.

Oh interesting, thanks for making a walkthrough like that!
The only other way I've seen it possible is through apps like Panini Keypad

Anyways, thanks though, this is great!
