Description Jens Petersen 2006-01-10 04:47:49 EST
Description of problem:
The scim-tables for Tamil need to be ported to m17n-db.
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2006-02-16 20:24:50 EST
Also we need a Tamil99 map: it is the standard layout of the
Tamil Nadu State Government.

There is a gtkimm for it:
http://tamillinux.sourceforge.net/projects/project/gtk2tamilim/
but the code does not look useful: long series of case statements
and it is not GPL/LGPL.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2006-02-16 20:33:07 EST
This is the TamilNet99 layout:
http://www.tamilvu.org/Tamilnet99/keystand.htm

Note the scim-tables maps have been ported to m17n-db btw
though the phonetic map is not working correctly yet.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2006-02-22 04:48:36 EST

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2006-02-22 04:49:44 EST

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2006-03-01 10:34:41 EST
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.

Hi,

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.

Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2006-03-10 02:29:56 EST
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.
Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2006-03-10 09:29:48 EST
Ok please a separate bug for the typewriter map.  Thanks.

Tested on m17-db-tamil-1.3.3-1
