Ubuntu 22.04
If Settings > Keyboard/Region does not work then try following

  • Remember to log out or reboot after installation of Avro and then proceed to the next step.
  • Ibus preference from the system menu or ibus-setup from the terminal.
  • Click on the Add button in Input Method
  • Search for Bangla and then click on Avro Phonetic

Sometimes avro stops writing Bangla. It starts writing in English after a couple of words. I have switched off the preferences option altogether and got rid of this problem.
