How to install unijoy or unibijoy on Ubuntu 11.10

Writing Bangla has been a lot of easier since the latest versions of ubuntu has IBus built-in inside it.

You just have to paste the following commands on the terminal.
01. Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open Terminal.
02. paste the following commands in terminal and provide the password.
sudo apt-get install ibus-m17n m17n-db m17n-contrib ibus-gtk
sudo dpkg -L m17n-db|grep bn
sudo dpkg -L m17n-contrib|grep bn

Thats it.

Of course you need an Internet connection to complete the installation process.
If ibus is not installed on your system, install it by providing the following commands on terminal.
sudo apt-get install ibus
then follow the instructions on this link.

  2. Thank you very much for the tutorial.

    I have successfully written unicode Bangla text in GEDIT on my Ubuntu 12.04.1 setup. But unfortunately unable to do so in FIREFOX 14

    • In firefox, is it writing in english or scrambed letter in bangla?

    Nothing is writing………………………..

    is there anyway to replace Provat layout from default keyboard layout that comes with ubuntu system by Avro keyboard?

  4. Dear brother!
    thanks for your help.
    But I have already installed MS Office 2007 in ubuntu.
    I have also installed ibus avro. Its workig very very awesome. I have no problem to write bangla in Chrome/Gedit/Libre Office.

    My problem occurs when I try to write bangla in MS Office 2007 installed under wine.
    I tried the following things:
    1. ibus avro (Nothing is writing in MS office 2007 winder wine, only showing the suggestions)
    2. other ibus bangla keyboard (Nothing is writing in MS office 2007 winder wine, only showing the suggestions)
    3. Avro under wine. (can write everything but “zofolla” and “এ” )
    4. Default keyboard (Bangla & Provat)- (can write everything but “zofolla” and “এ” )

    I wanted to know from you about what is the solution for this.
    I thought the best solution is to replace the default “bd” or “provat” keyboard with a “bijoy” or “avro” keyboard.
    that is replacing the native bangla keyboard rather than ibus/scim input method.

    I have already tried to replace the default “bd” keyboard with a customized “bd_bijoy” keyboard. But still i cant write “zofolla” and “এ” . its comes like র‍্যাব for RAB. ্ে for এ. Remaining everything is working well like normal “Bijoy” keyboard. Even I can write “Zuktakkhor” in bijoy (bd_bijoy).
    N.B: here is the link for customized “bd” keyboard to replace the default “bangla” keyboard layout that comes with Ubuntu:

    I think now you can understand my problem. Hope you will help me if possible.
