IBus is an Intelligent Input Bus. It is a new input framework for Linux OS. It provides full featured and user friendly input method user interface. It also may help developers to develop input method easily.
But when I want to use it in Ubuntu 10.10, I stoped. There is no any foreign language option there, except Chinese language. I need to use another language keyboard, So I made some change in my machine. Follow the simple instruction below.
If you want to find your language in the 'input method' tab on IBus preference then install ibus-m17n. It is available via Synaptic package manager. After install, restart computer. After getting ibus-m17n with all dependency, you will get many keyboard and language name on ibus preference.
Select your preferred language and click Add. Restart IBus input method system.
