I need Google Input Tools for writing scripts in Telugu language in Celtx in Ubuntu 13.10. I tried various methods, but none is as simple as Google Input Tools. Is there a way?

  • What's the output of running sudo apt-get install ibus-m17n ?? – Braiam Oct 16 '13 at 18:26
  • Celtx is really a web application. We have the advantage of big computers on the web doing stuff for us instead of having to depend on the much more limited resources of our local machine. Source: Celtx: Open Source Screenwriting Beginner's Guide. – karel Mar 6 '14 at 10:41
