Subject:     Typing Sanskrit in Libre writer..

From:     L.R. Rao <>

Dear Sir/Madam,
I have added the 'Sanskrit2003' fonts in the hidden language list.
I am using KDE of Linux. Please let me know how to proceed further
to type in Sanskrit using Libre writer.
Thank you,
L. R. Rao.


You have to enable indian languages in the set of available languages for your keyboard in KDE

I have no KDE available at the moment, so I paste here the old instructions for KDE 4.2.2 (change where needed - you need to copy sanskrit2003 fonts in your fonts folder):

Click on the KDE menu start button -> Computer -> System Settings -> Language and Country.
Select "Keyboard Mapping".
In the «layout» tab, check «Enable keyboard layouts».
From the list of available mappings, select India and add it to the active mappings by clicking on the green arrow.
Click Apply and then close the dialog.
The keyboard layout indicator will then appear on the KDE panel, where you can click to select the desired language. After choosing the layout for the Indian keyboard, you can then use the font sanskrit2003, selecting it, in your favorite applications, from the respective character menu.

Maybe also this thread can help you.

Just click on the link near "Next by thread:" (bottom of the page) to go on reading next message.
