This question already has an answer here:

I plan to create a new character system for an existing language. I have the new characteres drawn on paper. I would like to draw them on the computer, save them as custom characters and create a new keyboard layout with them in Ubuntu linux. I have no experience with keyboard-character stuff. How to do it?

Clearly. I have 35 characters on paper. I wish them to be implemented as text characters on the computer. Is there software to draw the characters in linux? And after having the chars created how can man add them to the computers char set?

  • What do you mean by "new characters"? Are they in Unicode or are they brand new? – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Oct 24 '16 at 15:07
  • They are brand new. – inhabitedGalaxy Oct 24 '16 at 15:15
  • You mentioned an existing language, and now you tell us you created brand new characters... Sounds like a huge project to me. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Oct 24 '16 at 17:41
  • My characters sign sounds. The current characters of the language does not sign 5 sounds only in double character forms. I created 'recreated' new signs for the sounds of the language based on the anchient version of language characters (this language today use latin characters but in the middle ages it had its own symbology). But I do not now how to get it on the computer. Yes, this is an important project. Please help me. – inhabitedGalaxy Oct 24 '16 at 20:12
  • Nobody will spoon-feed you. As regards creating a keyboard layout, you already got a couple of links to start with. Possibly it would help if you could show us examples (by editing your question) of the new characters. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Oct 24 '16 at 21:20
