I opened libreoffice 3.0 (Ubuntu 11.10) and selected Lohit Hindi font in the fonts selection column. Downloaded the charachter map of English and Hindi keys as given here http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html-single/International_Language_Support_Guide/images/hindi.png
but when I am typing in Hindi with my english keyboard there is no Hindi word I still the english letters typed as "kerasadsd".Which should not happen since Lohit Hindi font is selected so I expected the correcponding key mapped Hindi characters to appear. What mistake did I do in above? I have US English keyboard only and I am using the same to type in Hindi.
