  1. I think Vim has been doing this since version 6.

  2. Vim is not an OS, BtW :P

  3. I am now sold to emacs-snapshot. It does it all as an editor and a programming environment.

  4. Can you please post more instruction on how you got this working ? I
    can see devanagari characters in Xft fonts. But the rendering is not
    right, ie. instead of correct ligatures, I just see halant aksharas.

    Exact instructions will help a lot of people.

    PS: I am on ubuntu 8.04 (hardy) using emacs-snapshot 23.0.60.1

    My emacs executable is linked with pango.

    Okay, I’m running Gentoo GNU/Linux and I’m running emacs-cvs port, which is
    nothing but Emacs checked out from CVS. For me the instruction is to
    unmask the ‘emacs-cvs’ port and execute ‘emerge emacs-cvs’ in a root shell
    :) .

    Check out emacs from the CVS repository. And then compile
    that. Following is the configure command used by my ‘emacs-cvs’ port
    . In case you get some dependency issues you’ve to resolve them
    yourself, by installing corresponding packages from your distribution’s
    repository. I’m installing it in /usr, you might like to install it in
    /usr/local, and mine is a amd64 box.

    ./configure –prefix=/usr –host=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
    –mandir=/usr/share/man –infodir=/usr/share/info –datadir=/usr/share
    –sysconfdir=/etc –localstatedir=/var/lib –program-suffix=-emacs-23
    –infodir=/usr/share/info/emacs-23 –without-carbon –with-sound
    –with-x –with-toolkit-scroll-bars –with-gif –with-jpeg –with-png
    –with-rsvg –with-tiff –with-xpm –enable-font-backend –with-freetype
    –with-xft –with-libotf –with-m17n-flt –with-x-toolkit=gtk
    –without-hesiod –without-kerberos –without-kerberos5 –with-gpm
    –with-dbus –libdir=/usr/lib64 –build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

    > PS: I am on ubuntu 8.04 (hardy) using emacs-snapshot 23.0.60.1

    One more thing you can try is modifying emacs-snapshot package’s source
    deb to include the appropriate switches during configure, hmm…? Or
    switch to Gentoo GNU/Linux or some other source-based distribution like
    FreeBSD, which gives you more flexibility .

    One of my friend who is running Ubuntu “hardy” reported that he is
    having Indic font rendering, working fine on his ubuntu hardy box using
    emacs-snapshot package. Let me reconfirm from him, like what else he had
    to do, to get that working.
