Avro Phonetic in Ubuntu Linux ‘Lucid Lynx’

Yesterday, we’ve got a bunch of email saying Avro Phonetic for Linux is not working in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. But, we’ve just checked and it works :D

Here are the steps –

1) Install scim from Ubuntu Software Center.

2) Download installer from http://scim-avro.googlecode.com/files/scim-avro_0.0.2-1ubuntu9.10_i386.deb
3) Change permission [Mark as executable]
4) Now follow instruction from http://omicronlab.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=2029
I hope It’ll work now :)

  • Dr. Muhammad Masroor Ali

    What if we use ibus? scim is being discontinued in Ubuntu and being replaced by ibus.

    Though I haven’t tried out in lucid yet, its good to know that it works. IMHO it would be good to update the project documents and known issues.

    At this moment we don’t have iBus support. But, I hope, soon we’ll release it for iBus.

    I have installed avro as you directed, but I don’t know how I will change my keyboard from normal layout to avro, there is not any direction about it. I don’t see ‘AVRO Phonetic’ in the keyboard layout list in my upper left corner of my window screen, I am a new user of Ubuntu, so can you please give me the detail of the process of using Avro in Ubuntu 10.04?

    আবারও লিখছি, অনেক চেষ্টার পর শেষ পর্যন্ত শুধু জিএডিটে বাংলা লিখতে পারছি, জিএডিতে ভাগ্যিস কিভাবে ইনপুট দিতে হবে তার অপশন আছে, এটা দিয়ে বাংলা লিখে তারপর কপি পেস্ট করে কাজ চালাচ্ছি, কিন্তু সব জায়গায় ডিফল্ট ইনপুট মেথড হিসেবে অভ্র দেবার পরও কেন কাজ করতে পারছি না, ঠিক বুঝলাম না, কেউ কি আমাকে এ ব্যাপারে সাহায্য করতে পারবেন প্লিজ?

    I was working with Avro Phonetic with Linux since last two years. But recently after formatting my computer I have installed UBUNTU 10.4 directly from CD. Then the problem starts. I installed scim-avro,but all in vain. It is yet to work. I got the following message. I require your kind help.

    There are 10 candidates which provide IM for /home/anupam/.xinput.d/en_IN:
    Selection Alternative
    ———————————————–
    + 1 default
    2 default-xim
    3 ibus
    4 lo-gtk
    5 none
    * 6 scim
    7 scim-bridge
    8 scim-immodule
    9 th-gtk
    10 th-xim
    System wide default for en_IN (or all_ALL) locale is marked with [+].
    Press enter to keep the current selection[*], or type selection number: 6
    Please install following packages:
    “( scim-anthy or scim-canna or scim-chewing or scim-pinyin or scim-hangul or scim-prime or
    scim-skk or scim-tables-additional or scim-m17n or scim-uim or scim-tables-ja or scim-tables-ko or
    scim-tables-zh )” .

      I had the same problem. To solve the problem open Ubuntu software center. Search for scim-anthy or any other which are mentioned above and install it. It worked for me very well.

    i tried to follow all the steps stated above and i also tried using getlibs to install avro on my 64bit ubuntu 10.04. Is there any way that I can follow to install avro on 64 bit ubuntu?

    আমার তো লিনাক্স মিন্টে কিচ্ছু করা লাগে না। হট কি F12 দিয়ে রেখেছি। আর অন্য কিচ্ছু না। শুধু F12 চাপলেই চলে আসে অভ্র। আর আমি লেখা শুরু করি

      I think you are using 64bit version of Linux.

  • roy.zyo

    @anupam mitra

  • ubuntulove

    i am running linux mint 10. my problem is i have installed avro successfully, but it is not working correctly. like when i am trying to write “লিখছি” i am actually ending up writing “লিকচি”. “বাংলা” is becoming “বানলা” and “বর্ণ” is becoming “বরর্”. i hope i made myself clear. please help me out as i badly need to write in bengali. thanks.

  • shahmeraz

    I tried to setup avro for 10.04. After installation with package manager I wrote the code in the terminal and it shows the following::——–

    root@UBUNTU1004:/home/shahmeraz# im-switch -c
    No system wide default defined just for locale en_US .
    Use “all_ALL” quasi-locale and set IM.
    System wide default for all_ALL locale is marked with [+].
    There are 3 choices for the alternative xinput-all_ALL (providing /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_ALL).

    Selection Path Priority Status
    ————————————————————
    * 0 /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default 10 auto mode
    1 /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default 10 manual mode
    2 /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default-xim 0 manual mode
    3 /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/none 0 manual mode

    Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number:

    At first I chose 0 but the SCIM doesn’t work. It just don’t start and no option is shown for the keyboard settings. I tried in several ways but it didn’t work out. Please tell me what should I do?

  • shahmeraz

    Most probably no one didn’t hear my words yet. I’m here waiting for my solution, someone help with proper suggestion.
