So you have an HP TouchPad and you want to read both Hebrew and Klingon pIqaD, but neither is supported by default on the device. There is a Hebrew font you can download (http://www.palmpreacher.com/?p=3100) and I have pIqaD font that can be installed, but there’s an issue if you want both: They both modify the same font file!
UPDATE: If you have Unicode characters you want added to the font, send me a font that has those characters in the correct places and I’ll add them. There’s no guarantee it will work as expected though.
After a little bit of magic, I managed to combine the Hebrew characters from PalmPreachers font with my font that supports pIqaD to create a single file to support both.
Edit: The font has been uploaded to Preware for easier installs. Search for pIqaD/Hebrew Font. You can still follow the instructions below if you don’t use Preware.
Edit2: Here’s a link to download the ipk which can be installed using WebOSQuickInstall.
Edit3: I’ve added Malayalam support to the latest font and it is available on Preware.
To install the font manually, download the IPK above and just follow these instructions:
1. Turn on Developer mode.
2. Install webOS Quick Install
3. Start webOS Quick Install.
4. Click the green +
5. Browse to the IPK and select it
6. Click install
7. Reboot your device
This font has been tested on both the HP TouchPad and the Pre2, but it should work on any device that is running webOS 2.1 or greater.
Also, I want to say thanks to Seth, for helping me test the font, and PalmPreacher, for his install instructions which are much better than mine.
