I would like to display Arabic text in my Android application. I am developing the application for Android 1.6.
Problem is, when i run the application i can only see square boxes instead of Arabic text.
After google'ing i found the font(*.ttf -true type font) for Arabic has to be added.
http://www.mydigitallife.info/2010/07/02/how-to-install-and-add-hebrew-arabic-and-unsupported-language-fonts-to-android-phone/. But the solution is for real devices. More over in emulator most of the commands [ex: su,mkdir,chmod etc] are not permitted.
I'm working on windows XP, Eclipse 3.5.2, Android 1.6. All i need is a solution to display Arabic text in emulator.
Any of your effort in this regard is respected from my side:-)
