I'm trying to type in my native language Sinhala with SCIM..but nothing is working. (I heard about something called ibus could help.) I want to get the phonetic output in Sinhala Unicode, when I input some phrase in in English. Is there a way to fix this...? Appreciate any help, Thanks!

My SCIM settings :

Just leave SCIM alone and begin installing iBus.. which contains a lot of unicode languages. :-D To change the settings, goto system settings>iBus

iBus is still significantly inferior for most of the half-dozen or so IMEs I use regularly, so it's still SCIM all the way for me. They both use the same modules (so an identical list of input-method engines, scripts etc. are available) but SCIM doesn't mangle any of them like iBus does in places.

For Sinhala in particular, the m17n engine works very nicely.
