    Hello Dear amerikkanu,
    I am trying to install it in UBUNTU 9.10, but it gives me the given message when I started SCIM through scim -d.
    Code:
    ajit@ajit-desktop:~$ scim -d
    Smart Common Input Method 1.4.9
    
    Launching a SCIM process with x11...
    Loading socket Config module ...
    Creating backend ...
    Loading x11 FrontEnd module ...
    Failed to load x11 FrontEnd module.
    Failed to launch SCIM.
    ajit@ajit-desktop:~$
    I am using your transliteration keyboard since UBUNTU 8.04 but I never face this problem. Even in Jaunty it had worked finely.
    Kindly give me some solution for it.

    Thanks
    Ajit...

    Now SCIM has started, but itrans works for only Gedit Text Editor.
    It is not working for Openoffice and firefox or any other application.
    What should I do?

    Thanks
    Ajit.

    The problem in typing new document in devanagari in Open Office is that I do not get the (proper ligatures for the) join of consonants: they stay separated.

    I also prefer the input method like Sanskrit in Baraha (on Windows XP).
    How do I get that for the gedit and/or Open Office (on ubuntu) ?
    Sorry for the delay--I've mostly been on other distros of late and didn't see these replies. In case anyone else has this issue, it ought to just be an OpenOffice configuration issue. Under Tools > Options... > Language Settings / Default languages for documents / CTL, select Hindi and under OpenOffice.org Writer / Basic Fonts (CTL), select a good unicode Devanāgarī font like Uttara or Sanskrit 2003, etc. Then, once you restart, OOo intelligently switches between fonts when you switch between input methods.

    Regarding Baraha, you're free to tweak the input to bring it more into line with Baraha's character map. Not being a Windows user any more, I can't help you with that offhand. I'll try to look into it and post something.

    Re: Sanskrit input (Devanagari and transliteration)

    XlitHindi is a plugin for OpenOffice, which is as good as google transliterate IME. Here is the link...

    http://extensions.services.openoffic...ject/xlithindi

    However, I want to use the transliteration function directly from my keyboard (with ibus). Unfortunately none of the maps are very user friendly for me. I want something like google transliterate. The closest one is "Hindi- Itrans", yet it is not as friendly as google transliterate or XlitHindi. Hope something could be done like this for ibus too.

    Re: Sanskrit input (Devanagari and transliteration)

    You can edit the ibus transliteration keymap.
    You need to open the keymap file with root user.
    For Hindi transliteration you may use this sudo gedit /usr/share/m17n/hi-itrans.mim



    Now you can edit the key-strokes as you like.
    I've edit my keymap as my convenience. You may use it from the given link.

    Re: Sanskrit input (Devanagari and transliteration)

    Update: In the new releases since this post was written, Ubuntu has come a very long way with preconfiguring the input method editor, now ibus (formerly SCIM), for us. It is now ready to go practically out of the box and setting up phonetic देवनागरी and Transliteration inputs is a trivial affair. For phonetic Devanāgarī, all you need to do is:

    Go to System > Administration > Language Support, and in the Language Tab select ibus for your "Keyboard Input Method System"
    Then click the button Install / Remove Languages..., click Hindi and Apply Changes
    in ubuntu 11.04 i did not have a m17n folder in /usr/share/
    so i added ibus-m17n from ubuntu software center. and i had it
    then i clicked on ibus icon in the pannel and go to preference.
    in input method tab i added my marathi phonotic input methord and now i can type in marathi.
