How can I type "Bengali" phonetically in this Debian laptop? I would also like to know the same for the language "Sanskrit". I used AVRO keyboard for typing Bengali phonetically in Win OS. I have read that the same can be done on Linux OS but not sure how to do it here.
- sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list (now add the following anywhere in the file)
- deb http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian testing main
- Save and exit sources.list file
- sudo apt update
- Now follow the instructions given here https://github.com/sarim/ibus-avro#avro-phonetic-for-linux-in-ibus
PS: I haven't tested it on my low cost laptop, but most certainly it should work.

I have installed IBUS Avro using Sarim's instruction. Avro phonetic bangla loads nicely. But whenever I type, the output is in Arabic!
Is there any general way of phonetically typing the indian languages in this Debian laptop?
I have dealt with Bengali once, but it seems difficult enough to me to do it on my own. Therefore, in this case, the built-in translation function will be very useful. I use email translation when communicating with colleagues from other countries, and this is just a necessary thing when doing this. This ensures that the translation is accurate in whatever language I need. For businesses and global companies, this is a great tool.
