This howto is not intended to explain how to create a locale definition file, we will just explain how to use the Bengali
locale definition on Linux. In this howto, we will use the bn_BD definition file, which is for Bangladeshi Bengali. However,
the Indian Bengali definition file, i.e. bn_IN, can be used in the same manner.
The bn_BD file should come with the latest glibc package. in case you have an older glibc, you can download this file from
the download section of Ankur's web page.
Now your system is ready to use bn_BD.UTF-8 locale. For example, I use the following command to open up an xterm with my own crappy font:
LC_ALL=bn_BD.UTF-8 xterm -fn "-misc-Probhat-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso10646-1" -u8
Remember, if you want to use Bengali in any application, you will have to start that application under an environment where the locale
was set to bn_BD.UTF-8, otherwise it won't work.
Please send any comments you have so we can make this HOWTO more helpful.
