I'm having some issue on Linux Mint 17.2 where Bengali/Bangla font's connected letters are not rendering well while visiting duckduckgo.com. This is how they appear -
While they should appear like this -
notice the connected letters like স্ব and ন্য.
The second screenshot is when I change their font-family to
monospace. But they dont render properly if they are not monospaced. They render properly on OSX for some reason. And another odd thing is that the connected letters appear well when I visit this wikipedia page - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bangla_script_display_help
I'm inclined to believe that there is some issue with the font duckduckgo uses - Proxima Nova. But I cannot be sure as they work fine on OSX. I'm totally confused. Any help is appreciated.
