Wink Tibetan Input Method in Linux


I am new pal in using Linux-Ubuntu. I have search all the time to find Tibetan Language Input Method, unfortunately I am not able to find one. Is there any such input method available? then where and how to get it and install it. it would greatly promote this old tradition as many of young Tibetan are willing to use it if there are the input method.

Yes, there is.

Check the M17N library. It supports several languages/scripts of the east-asian/south-east-asian realm.

Scim: http://www.scim-im.org/projects/imengines

M17N: http://www.m17n.org/m17n-lib-en/

Install scim, then m17n and at last scim-m17n.

Use your web browser and www.google.com/linux. Search for 'using Tibetan in Linux' for a discussion of using Tibetan, Tibetan fonts, Tibetan input methods, software support for Tibetan, and other links that may be of interest to you.

I apologize for the link regarging the Dalai Lama and Linux. It was a hoax, and I was deceived by it. Only later did I learn of the hoax.

Thank you for the suggestions. Actually I did that before and it didn't work so well for me.
I had known that it is hoax before, It is funny. No apology, it is life.

Then you just need the M17 library and the scim-m17 bridge and that's it.

To type Tibetan in Linux you can install the Dzongkha (dz or dz-BT) XKB file. This is a very easy keyboard layout to learn and use for Tibetan script. (Dzongkha and Tibetan share the same script.)


Install both ttf-dzongkha and ttf-tmuni. packages for Tibetan fonts in Debian.

For Red Hat: jomolhari-fonts-0.003-5.fc10.noarch.rpm and tibetan-machine-uni-fonts-1.0-1.fc7.noarch.rpm

Tibetan in Linux

P.S. To type Tibetan in OpenOffice make sure you have complex text (CTL) enabled and choose "Dzongkha" as the default language for CTL text documents. ("Tibetan" is not yet an option in OO.org).

Also under Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org Writer > Basic Fonts (CTL)
make sure you have a Tibetan font (Jomolhari or "Tibetan Machine Uni") selected for each option (Default, Heading, List Caption and Index)

Hi, it worked. I did it in Ubuntu 8.04. all the m17n, and scim m17n are in the depository of Ubuntu. therefore it is quite handy to do so.

Anyway thank you very much.
