How to install Unijoy on Ubuntu Gnome (Gnomebuntu)

The regular method doesn’t work for some reason without some extra thing to do.

The full method is given below:
1. Type the following on the terminal

sudo apt-get install ibus ibus-m17n m17n-db m17n-contrib ibus-gtk

2. Type the following on the terminal to verify if Unijoy has been installed or not.

dpkg -L m17n-db | grep bn

You will see something like the picture below and unijoy should be on the list.

3. Open “dconf-editor”, it should be in the applicaton list.

Or just type “dconf-editor” in the terminal.

Navigate to Org > gnome > desktop > input-sources
You should see something like [('xkb', 'gb')] or [('xkb', 'us')] as the value.

Double click on the Sources value to change it and add ('ibus', 'm17n:bn:unijoy') so that the value looks like below

[('xkb', 'us'), ('ibus', 'm17n:bn:unijoy')]

I have a Swedish Keyboard layout, so mine looks like,

[('xkb', 'se'), ('xkb', 'us'), ('ibus', 'm17n:bn:unijoy')]

Click anywhere else to save it and close it.

4. Restart pc.
If you don’t want to restart the restart xserver by typing the following in the terminal:

sudo restart gdm
