    t have to enable the font, at the top of the screen, where US flag is there.  I have enabled the kannada font and it is working now.

     

    The "flag" menu you are referring to is for Keyboard Layouts, not Fonts.  In modern unicode computer systems, you switch languages by selecting the proper keyboard layout, and the font takes care of itself.

     

    There is no need to download any font for Kannada -- OS X comes with 2 of them already installed by default, Kannada MN and Kannada Sangam MN.

    Forget about the font, you have to select the Keyboard Layout.  It has to look like this at the top right of your screen:
