How can I install Avro in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS release? I have tried with this method but not working (previously worked in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS).

Edit: This question is not a duplicated version of this one. Seems like installing Avro in 18.04 LTS needs some additional steps.

    Have you tried with the latest Avro release on GitHub? What do you mean by "not working"? – xiota May 13 at 23:50
  • The top answer of the linked question recommends nearly the same steps as the accepted answer to this one. – David Foerster May 27 at 21:44

I am using Avro in 18.04 LTS and it's working.

Here is the steps you need to follow.

  1. Go to Language Support. Click install/remove languages.

    Language support dialog

  2. Select Bangla from the list and click apply. After installing Bangla language support you should start installing Avro.

    Installed Languages dialog

  3. The resulting window should look like this:

    Language Support dialog with Bangla

  4. Download and install avro from here on GitHub. I use 2.0 version

    sudo dpkg -i avro_2.0-1_all.deb
  5. You will see some missing packages. To install those, run the following command:

    sudo apt-get install -f
  6. Restart ibus

    ibus restart
  7. Now go to Settings > Region and language > Add an input source > Bangla > Bengali (Avro Phonetic)

    Add an input source dialog

  8. Enjoy typing Bangla in Avro keyboard.

  • Installed successfully. Not working on 18,04 LTS. I had no problem on 16.04 LTS. Please help. – bluepearlsky May 18 at 19:22
  • @bluepearlsky What exactly is your problem? Avro is not showing up in the list or everything is fine but Bangla is not appearing while typing? – Haseeb Mahmud May 19 at 7:46
  • First I tried the above tutorial.Got this display. ashoke@ashoke-desktop:~$ sudo dpkg -i avro_2.0-1_all.deb [sudo] password for ashoke: dpkg: error: dpkg status database is locked by another process ashoke@ashoke-desktop:~$ Then installed 'Avro 2.1-3' from Ubuntu Software. Avro Installed enter image description here Default Avro preferences. enter image description here Bangla script not showing. enter image description here Therefore,the problem. Bangla is not appearing while typing. :-) – bluepearlsky May 22 at 18:05
  • Though, I am not an expert but during installation, I have used latest Debian package from GitHub. This method worked for me without any additional step. – sabquat May 23 at 20:11
