Installing the Fonts on Your System
There is a mini font howto provided in the Ankur Bangla project website which explains the steps required in installing our fonts on your GNU/Linux system.
Alternately, if you are using a Debian or Ubuntu system, you can install our fonts easily by issuing this command from your console --
$ sudo apt-get install ttf-bengali-fonts
This will automatically install all our fonts in addition to a few more Bangla fonts.
