I'm very new to Ubuntu and using 12.04. I need help with logkeys and installing and the codes don't respond. I get this after I try installing:

Couldn't find package "lkl".  However, the following
packages contain "lkl" in their name:
  sinhala-font-lklug fonts-lklug-sinhala ttf-sinhala-lklug

No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed.

Need to get 0 B of archives. After unpacking 0 B will be used.

What should I do?

Package lkl was only used for an (now) old release of Ubuntu. The package on launchpad shows only Hardy.

So if you want this you need to install the source code from here. Download it, open a console and extract the files from the archive. The following commands should install it:

  • cd lkl
  • ./configure
  • make
  • make check (not required but it does some tests).
  • sudo make install

to install the package program and you should have the command lkl on your system.
