Currency Symbol Issue in PDF

fonts in https://github.com/frappe/fonts has been installed as per instruction in my server but still the same problem in PDF

Looks like there is no issue with Persian/Arabic fonts i have change the currency symbol from ؋ to افغانی which is Persian/Arabic font and try to generate PDF it show افغانی correctly in PDF and Print Preview, therefore the ؋ is a symbol which is not cover in Persian/Arabic font.
Now can anyone help me in any other way to add ؋ symbol because افغانی is not symbol i just use it for test purpose only.

Your best bet is most likely Arial

I have install the Arial font in my server by run bellow commands:

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
sudo fc-cache

but still same issue

Can any one tell me how the INR symbol work with ERPNext, as i investigate in forum it’s belong to font-awesome, if it’s true, can you tell me how to create font-awesome of AFN symbol (؋) and use it in ERPNExt?

@felix any update?

You’ll have a search for a font with the character, and try them

Every font/symbol has a its own unicode character value.

As you asked about INR rupee it has U+20B9 ₹ INDIAN RUPEE SIGN has Unicode character. This font was supported first in ubuntu v.10 then other OS also supported later. For me this font(INR) was not working in windows7,and I solved it by updating font from https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/kb/2496898

In your case the font is available in Ubuntu. Even If I put the direct unicode value in currency list it works for web view. but the issue is wkhtmltopdf is not rendering the font famiy.

so you need to link the custom font family wtih wkhtmltopdf,and the below link may help you.

Thanks again @shivkumar @umair bellow steps help me to solve the issue:

Upload/ssh the font(s) to my home folder on the server
Copy font to the system fonts folder, this way it can be used by all users on the system
sudo cp -R ~/arial /usr/share/fonts/truetype/
Check permissions
sudo chmod 755 /usr/share/fonts/truetype/arial/
Install the fonts so applications can use them
sudo fc-cache -f -v

Note: need to install all Arial font’s.

Another solution that worked for me on Centos is following this: https://superuser.com/questions/1153990/anyone-know-how-to-install-arial-fonts-on-centos-7

You can install liberation fonts or microsoft fonts.
The latter using:

[root@geeksite~/]# wget http://www.itzgeek.com/msttcore-fonts-2.0-3.noarch.rpm
[root@geeksite~/[# rpm -Uvh msttcore-fonts-2.0-3.noarch.rpm

that’s it.
