Bug Description

In the file /etc/fonts/conf.avail/65-nonlatin.conf the "Raghindi" font family is specified for devanagari script in Serif and Sans-serif style while "Lohit Hindi" in monospace. On the other hand, the Raghindi font is not installed by default. Because of this, the web browsers including Chrome and Firefox don't display the script correctly. A lot of people struggle to correct it by manually changing the settings in the browsers and partially succeed.
The problem can be completely solved by replacing "Raghindi" in /etc/fonts/conf.avail/65-nonlatin.conf with "Lohit Hindi" or any other pre-installed font.
