Description Ani Peter 2007-11-28 07:40:37 UTC
Description of problem:

In lohit-malayalam font,  0D28 + 0D4D + 200D + 0D31 (key 'V', key 'D', key ']'
and  key ' shift J'  on  malayalam inscript keyboard)  gives the conjunct  ' 
ന്‍റ ' . But  the correct combination is  0D28 + 0D4D + 0D31   (type key 'V', key
'D'  and  key ' shift J'  on  malayalam inscript keyboard) which must give the
conjunct  ന്‍റ.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:

1.Open gedit/kedit.
2.Type unicode 0D28, 0D4D, 200D , 0D31(or  type  key 'V', key 'D', key ']' and 
key ' shift J'  respectively using Malayalam Inscript).
3.Result   is    ന്‍റ.
  
Actual results:

1.Open gedit/kedit.
2.Type unicode 0D28, 0D4D, 200D , 0D31(or  type  key 'V', key 'D', key ']' and 
key ' shift J'  respectively using Malayalam Inscript).
3.Result   is    ന്‍റ.

Expected results:

1.Open gedit/kedit.

J'   respectively using Malayalam Inscript).

Appreciate if you could let me know the status of this bug as this has to be
fixed immediately before next release.

This is a very basic but very critical bug and hence must be fixed urgently.

Thanks
Ani

Rahul, we had a personal discussion on this bug last week. Is the issue clear
for you or do you still have any doubts?

Thanks
Ani

Comment 7 Rahul Bhalerao 2008-01-22 12:43:15 UTC
Ani, thanks for the concern. The problem is absolutely clear to me. It also has
a relation the  other bug about chillaksharam right now.

Ani, can you please test this font file before I build it for fedora?

Comment 10 Ani Peter 2008-01-23 11:10:11 UTC
Rahul ,

I still find this is not fixed completely. Now the result is just the key
sequence when 0D28 + 0D4D +  0D31 is used.

Problem : 0D28 + 0D4D + 200D + 0D31 has to be used for getting the conjunct.

Expected result: 0D28 + 0D4D +  0D31 must give the desired conjunct.

Please have a look on the screenshot attached on Comment #5 

Let me know if any more queries.

Thanks
Ani

Comment 13 Ani Peter 2008-01-23 11:25:48 UTC
Please ignore the comment #12 as its a repetition of comment #10. Instead please
have a look in the follwing:

Rahul,

One more thing I would like to mention is that, now as the chillu is not working
anywhere, currently 0D28 + 0D4D + 200D + 0D31 is also not giving the conjunct. I
have already showed you the glyph of the conjunct in the font file. have
attached the same as in comment #11

Thanks
Ani

Comment 14 Rahul Bhalerao 2008-01-23 13:08:06 UTC
Ani, from the screenshot in comment #5 attached by you, I assume you do not want
the conjunct to be formed for 0D28 + 0D4D + 200D + 0D31?
