need TamilNet99 map
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:20 EST
Description of problem:
The scim-tables for Tamil need to be ported to m17n-db.
Also we need a Tamil99 map: it is the standard layout of the
Tamil Nadu State Government.
There is a gtkimm for it:
but the code does not look useful: long series of case statements
and it is not GPL/LGPL.
This is the TamilNet99 layout:
Note the scim-tables maps have been ported to m17n-db btw
though the phonetic map is not working correctly yet.
ifelix, can you help me getting the tamil99 map ready?
I have a fix for the phonetic map btw.
Felix, thanks for the tamil99 map - I converted it to m17n-db format
and it is in m17n-db-1.3.3-1. Please check if it is ok.
In Tamil nadu most of the people using Tamil Typewriter layout(To Professional
Type writer), Then ordinary users prefers Transliteration, And Govt standard is
Tamil'99. I didn't find anybody using Inscript. Here I didn't find Tamil type
writer layout. It is very important.

Give me some time. I 'll check and tell u.
Find the Type writer layout in the follwing URL
Transliteration is that same as the itrans layout?
Ok, could you generate a text file with the typewriter layout and
attach it here and I can convert it to m17n .mim syntax.
Ok please a separate bug for the typewriter map. Thanks.
Tested on m17-db-tamil-1.3.3-1
The keymap is imported and appearing accurately.
