I had faced the similar problem earlier and found a solution myself here. But I am stumped now.

I am running Doom Emacs 3.0.0 on Emacs 27.2 on Gnome 40.4.

In my config.el, there is:

(set-fontset-font t 'devanagari "Eczar")

I have installed Eczar font. font-counsel shows Eczar as an option. set-frame-font shows multiple Eczar entries --- I guess, one each for a variant. I can select any of these and the change is reflected immediately. I can do Options -> Set Main Font and select Eczar. And like in the previous case, the change is reflected immediately.

But that setting in config.el has no effect. I can not get only Devanagari characters to display in Eczar (or any other) font.

describe-char shows the font Gotu. I had used that earlier.

How do I solve this problem?

  • Does "Eczar" appear as a choice if you click on Options-> Set Default Font? If it does, can you select it? Does it work?

  • @NickD Thanks. Yes. It does show Eczar. It shows several variants like Eczar Regular, Medium, etc. I can select any of these. And the text changes accordingly. But that changes it for all character sets. I wanted that font only for Devanagari characters.

  • Yes, I meant it as a sanity check, not as a solution.
