Unicode chars in report drawString - can it work?

on 5/6/13, 2:51 PM 1,889 views

In a report rml file I have defined:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>


    <setFont name="Times-Roman" size="24"/>
    <drawString x="65mm" y="260mm">Čečėnija</drawString>

But still, no good at displaying characters in generated pdf. Should I do anything else?

Check, that you install in your OS dejavu fonts.

ttf-dejavu, ttf-dejavu-core, ttf-dejavu-extra packages are installed.
