Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That depends on which operating system you are using and occasionally on which desktop environment you are using. (KDE has a language locale configuring tool. Gnome, XFCE, and I believe LXDE, do not.) The procedure varies with the distribution (operating system).
In other words, a little information about your system would be helpful.
If you are using Debian, in a terminal type
i want install gujarati indic ime 5.1 in linux ubuntu 10.4...
Right..you've said that THREE TIMES now. What you haven't done is answer Randicus Draco Albus question about which desktop environment you're using. You also haven't said if you bothered trying the command he provided, or what the results of that command were. Unless YOU provide details and answer questions, we can't help you, no matter how many times you ask the same thing.
And did you try to look this up on Google or the Ubuntu forums?
1. Make sure you have a Gujarati font installed. Run the character map from the accessories menu, select "view by script", and see if it shows anything when you select Gujarati. If you haven't got one, use your package installer to find a font: Ubuntu is bound to have one.
2. Run the software installer and look for the language packs, and then install the Gujarati one.
3. Somewhere in the menu (system settings, system preferences) you'll have a tool to reconfigure the keyboard. There you can install a Gujarati keyboard driver and say which one you want as the default. You can also (click on Options) select a key to change the layout. Scroll-lock is a good choice, as you can also set the scroll-lock light to indicate when using the other keyboard.
4. Set your locale. This tells your computer the usual language, your local currency, weights and measures, even the size of paper used to print on. Open a terminal and type locale. I get a block of information starting with LANG=en_GB.utf8. Yours probably starts with LANG=en_IN.utf8 and what you want is LANG=gj_IN.utf8. I think you change it using System settings and then Language support.
5. Set your language in LibreOffice. Click on Tools - Options - Language settings - Languages. Then tick the box "Enable complex text layout" and pick Gujarati in the drop-down list marked CTL.
