New Rupee Symbol of Indian – How to use it in Computers.

You can download the Rupee_Foradian font file from Rupee_Foradian.ttf

Installing and using on Linux

1. Copy Rupee_Foradian.ttf file to /home/Home_Name/ .fonts/ (create this directory, if not exists)
2. Open any word process applications (like open-office, Thunderbird etc), choose “Rupee Foradian” from the drop down box of fonts (If it was already open, restart the application).
3. Press the key just above the Tab button (with “~” symbol) to get the rupee symbol (`)

The button to press

Installing and using on Windows

1. Copy Rupee_Foradian.ttf file to OSDrive:/Windows/Fonts. Normally it would be “C:/Windows/Fonts”. When you paste the file to this location, OS would display say that it is installing the font.
2. Open your word processor and select the “Rupee_forindian” (If it was already open, restart the application).
3. Press the key just above the Tab button (with “~” symbol) to get the rupee symbol (`). Refer the previous image

Installing and using on Macintosh

1. Copy Rupee_Foradian.ttf file to /System/Library/Fonts if all the users need to use it and for a single user it should be /Users/Home_Name/Library/Fonts
2. Open your word processor and select the “Rupee_forindian” (If it was already open, restart the application).
3. Press the key just above the Tab button (with “~” symbol) to get the rupee symbol (`). Refer the previous image

NOTE: Since it is a true type font am not sure whether it will work on Tiger(10.4) version of Macintosh. There shouldn’t be any problems in Leopard(10.5) and Snow Leopard(10.6) version of Macintosh.

It's working!
