    Thumbs up How do i type in Tamil ?

    Hi thr ,
    First , let me congratulate everyone to make Tamil LoCo team ,as a first Loco team to propell from India. Hats off to Tamil LoCo team ,I am glad that i can contribute here to my best.
    I have been rushing to make my post here with my hands and thoughts rushing in to type and also to make my friends know abt this Tamil LoCo team. I hope many natives ppls'll be finding more friendly to post here rather than in a English forums section ( and myself too ).

    Wow, I feel proud of Ubuntu here ...

    I want to know how do you guys type in Tamil with Ubuntu. I am a madrassi' afterall but not used in multi-lingual environment.

    Thx again for making a landmark , here in UbuntuForums.org

    வணக்கம்,



    It is great to hear those encouraging words from you. There is a firefox Tamilkey support provided by Mukunth & Team.

    Goto: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/extensions/

    Search for TamilKey and install.

    That is for firefox. Right click where ever u need to type in Tamil, and choose the suitable keyboard layout.

    To use Tamil in Ubuntu please use the following URL

    http://ubuntu-tam.org/tamil_ubuntu_w...AF%8D%E0%AE%B3

    If u can't get there using the above URL copy paste the following,

    Regards...

    வாழ்த்துக்கள்

    வணக்கம்!

    நான் SCIM உள்ளீடு மென்பொருள் மூலமாக Phonetic முறையில் தமிழ் உள்ளீடு செய்கிறேன். இதற்கான வழிமுறையை கீழ்கண்ட எனது வலைப்பூ சுட்டியில் பெறலாம்.

    Firefox மற்றும் OpenOffice-ல் உள்ளீடு செய்ய, இதோ எனது இன்னொரு வலைப்பூ சுட்டி:

    hi guys!!
    i recently came to kknow about this site http://quillpad.in
    through one of my firiends.
    @shutdown
    its a nice tool for people who know to speak , but dont know to write, but wanna type in tamil.
    just browse through the site, you just need to type in english what you speak, and the rest the tool does it .

    i was also able to find this tool for other south indian languages and marathi.
    just try it out , i found it useful when i wanted to write mails in tamil

    1. it didnt want to me to install fonts or
    2. i didnt have to search for keys in the keyboard which will give me a particular letter


    இது ஒரு ஆரம்பம் இனிமேல் தான் ஆட்டம்

    ஒரு தடவை சொன்னா நூறு தடவை சொன்னா மாதிரி
