I have installed ibus-m17n packages and added ibus-daemon in start up applications. Then I enabled Show current input source in the menu bar in System settings > Text Entry. I have noticed Tamil(phonetic(m17n))(IBus) is grayed. Super + Space is also not switching the language. Introduction of fcitx input method plays any role in this. IF so how can I adopt that method with indic languages(Tamil)?

  • tamil99 keyboard installed on 15.04 works fine for me. I followed the same thing that you mentioned here. Initially it didn't show up the new keyboards installed. Once I have restarted the machine, I see them available for selection. super+space is also working now to switch between the layouts. – rpattabi Aug 31 '15 at 15:50
  • Remove the ibus-deamon item in Startup Applications.
  • Open Language Support, and select IBus as the "Keyboard input method system".
  • Log out and log in again.

Now the input source indicator should be visible in the menu bar, and the m17n options available in Text Entry.

  • Unfortunately your solution didn't work ! Actually I have tried what you suggested for the first time, it didn't work then only I had my ibus-daemon – Peramanathan Jun 23 '15 at 20:11
