I have installed iBUS, added all the Tamil packages in synaptic, and installed Tamil in Languages support and I still can't get it to work.

Note: I don't think you had to install all those apps to get a new language to work. Canonical's philosophy is that Ubuntu should work right out of the box in almost every language in the world. That is why they went to great depths to create the Ubuntu font family, which contains glyphs for most scripts used in the world today.
