I recently updated to Debian Jessie. and found out that my earlier setup of ibus doesn’t work anymore.
After digging a bit, I could fix the problem. noting it down here for future reference.
- Install ibus ibus-gtk ibus-gtk3 ibus-m17n libreoffice-gtk
apt-get install ibus ibus-gtk ibus-gtk3 ibus-m17n libreoffice-gtk
- Enable ibus input in “Input Method” app
- Restart x server
service gdm restart
- Go to “Region and language” and add a convenient malayalam input method (swanalekha or mozhi or inscript) in the input section
- Go to “Keyboard” app and in the Shortcuts section, update a convenient shortcut to switch between the input methods.
And Happy Typing
