I use Ubuntu 11.10 and Gnome environment. I am able to type documents in Hindi by a method shown here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL7icGNhIfI I installed ibus-m17n and ibus packages and have enabled support for Hindi language in gnome-language-selector.I have following input methods enabled in ibus preference window
Hindi inscript (m17n)
a snapshot for the same can be seen here https://picasaweb.google.com/107404068162388981296/UnknownAsianLanguage#5705518106929667058
Also you can see in this snapshot that these methods do come in drop down menu of ibus
I open libreoffice and press Ctrl+Space so that I can type in Hindi. I am able to type in Hindi.
When the input method is off as in this snapshot https://picasaweb.google.com/107404068162388981296/UnknownAsianLanguage#5705519585633896530
then I am able to type in Hindi with following kind of keyboard
i.e. by pressing key "h" letter प gets typed.
Now comes the problem upon selecting the method phonetic as in this snapshot https://picasaweb.google.com/107404068162388981296/UnknownAsianLanguage#5704771437325752466
pressing key "h" letter again प gets typed.
That means that selection of different input methods has no effect on typing. So is ibus not working properly or I missed some thing? How can I get expected behavior when selecing different input methods in ibus preference window?
