How to add a new custom entry to Text entry-choose an custom input source list? Note : I want to use a Tamil language keyboard layout 'ta-balini.mim'.


I hope this link will help you:



You install the appropriate package(s), log out and log in again. For Tamil I think installing ibus-m17n may be what you want.

  • Hmm.. I see that I may have misread the question. The answer provided by muzaffar habibullayev is probably more on the spot. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Dec 10 '14 at 14:23
