कार्यालय became कायार्लय, पुलिस became पिलुस

I have installed i-bus and selected Hindi-Remington (m17n), while typing in Windows in the same layout it is working properly, Please help to resolve.

  • If you haven't already, try to install the fonts-deva fonts package. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Nov 3 '16 at 15:01

  • Hi Gunnar, I Installed fonts-deva and tried but it is not working as required. – Swarup Das Jun 8 '17 at 11:31
  • I have used following command, you may also try to execute these to get the updated version? sudo apt-get install fonts-indic sudo sudo apt-get install ibus-m17n – Anil Jun 9 '17 at 10:48

This is an issue in Ubuntu. To write "पुलिस", first of all write "पु", then "ल" and then use "ि". For "कार्य", first write "का", then "र" and then "य". This is the difference between dev Lys and Remington.
