I want to find a way by which I can write:
This is my country and
இது என் நாடு in consecutive lines. So far, the solutions require me to write the Tamil in a separate page, save it as an image and paste it after the English text which makes the output rather undesirable. Using xelatex also doesn't seem to work on my system.
Is there a way to use pdflatex and generate this document?
Things I have tried:
I tried to only write in Tamil using the information provided here in
xelatex(LaTeX/XeTeX setup Tamil/Indic languages). I keep getting the error that the font
Lathawas not found.
I simply tried pasting the text as suggested here (Writing in தமிழ் (Tamil)), but as mentioned before, the output is very ugly.
Even a basic simple code using
standalone documentclass would be sufficient for me. I am using MXLinux as the operating system.
