[si_LK] sinhala input problem with 1st and 2nd modifiers - Priority A
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
The 1st and 2nd modifier in sinhala does not appear in gedit properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gedit
2. activate SCIM
3. select RAWCODE (if know the scim-sinhala key sequence for same combinations,
one can try with selecting sinhala layout in scim - result will be the same)
4. type the unicode combinations or unicodes or the key sequences(list will be
given soon in the comment)
5. observe the result
Shapes of the comjunct characters are not showing properly.
The shapes should be shown properly.
The list of unicodes and the Unicode combinations will be attached as file in
the comment as those are long list!!
What is the meaning of '1st modifier' and '2nd modifier'? I never used or
encountered these terms for any other Indic fonts/scripts. Could you please
provide the list of combinations as soon as possible.
I'm not very much into the fonts stuff or language internals, but according to
what I discussed with Tyronne yesterday...
type "ii" or "uu" or "oo" or "dH" with scim-sinhala
type "kRoo" with scim-sinhala
Hoping this helps...
All of the 1st modifier and 2nd modifier issues are related to scim-sinhala.
Font renders correctly with pango and rawcode. Scim-sinhala maps combination of
two different keys to one unicode characters. This function is not working on gnome.
It can be related to scim-bridge or any other mechanism within input method, but
not to the font or Pango.
This also sounds similar to bug 206261.
