With fresh installation of SuSE Linux 10.1 or openSUSE 10.2, Firefox does not display Khmer Unicode font properly. However, there is a very easy fix, all you have to do is to add the “MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO=1” to your .profile.

  1. Go to your home directory, then edit the .profile file. I use vi (vi .profile)
  2. Scroll down to the last line of the file and add: export MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO=1
  3. Save the .profile file, in my case I do (ESC, SHIFT+Z+Z). Restart the Firefox.

Voilla! It’s done and the Firefox should display Khmer Unicode font nicely and correctly now.
