Thankyou so much for taking the time to look into my query. Please find my answers below
1) The m17n/m17n-dev library may be missing on
your raspberrypi. You need that for shaping.
I installed libm17n-dev – library, as suggested, still the appearance is same, "disconnected characters".
2) The font being used is not capable of being
properly shaped. ---
I tried ARIAL Unicode, MS Serif Font, as well as FARSI fonts from http://alefba.us/free-arabic-persian-farsi-urdu-kurdish-fonts/
And also changed the locale to “GB_GB
ISO-8859-1 and GB_GB ISO-8859-15”..... still no change in display.
3) Is this a problem that you are only seeing on RPi
or are you seeing this problem on all linux
Issue is only in RPi. That too, only when displayed through C# application. Same label when displayed through java application works perfectly fine. And text editor also works fine.
Further i installed “https://github.com/behdad/bicon” bicon library, still the issue remains.
Is there something else i should try, is there any other cross compiler to display persian characters in a RPi on linux box.
Appreciate your valuable suggestions/inputs.
