Ubuntu :: Greek Language Support

Oct 10, 2010

I see 10.10 manages languages like 10.04.

I am English but live in Greece and although "I get by" with Greek, I do not read it very well and certainly do not write it. Consequently, I need to have everything on my PC in English. No problem so far but I do need to enable writing in Greek on occasion as the missus and bairns are Greek and my favourite little translator, GWord, obviously needs it.

I installed Greek language support and this resulted in everything being in Greek and me having to talk the missus through getting it back in English (she has trouble with technical stuff, bless her).

Just enabling translation and/or fonts etc in Language Support has no effect whatsoever.

I just want to press Alt+Shift and type in Greek, Alt+Shift again to be back in English and see my GWord (running under Wine) displaying no gobbledegook!

General :: Keyboard Layout For Mathematical / Greek Symbols?

May 12, 2010

I've been wondering about this for a long time but never thought to ask: I do a lot of scientific work so there are many times it would be really handy to be able to type mathematical symbols or Greek letters which, for the most part, aren't part of the ASCII character set. Like "∞ ρ σ τ ω ∑ ... √ ∫ ≤ ≥ " and so on. Is there a keyboard layout (for Linux) that maps simple key combinations to these kinds of characters? (Assuming all the encoding and font issues are worked out properly) I know I could create one myself but it'd be a lot easier if someone's already done the work, or at least if there's a partial solution I could modify.

General :: Can't Differentiate System Language From Keyboard Language?

Apr 14, 2010

i recently got a french msi wind U100x running on linux suse enterprise 10 sp1. (i am french and wanted a light netbook with french keyboard)i am totally new to linux and i believe that msi wind is not helping.because i am more used to english for settings, i set the main language to english, but it seems that it automatically reconfigures my keyboard mapping to english as well, so that azerty becomes qwerty.i reset it back to french, so now my keyboard is french, but so is the there a way to differentiate keyboard from main user setting language?

Ubuntu :: Support For Language While Keeping English As Language Used To Display Desktop?

Mar 5, 2011

I have some music in another language, but when I open the songs in Banshee, their song names just come up as weird characters (like μ).I went to [System --> Administration --> Language Support] and installed support for that language, but the songs still come up like μ. (But in Nautilus, their proper names show).

I know the solution is to change my whole system language to that language, but I don't want to do that, as I am not very fluent in it. Is there any way to enable support for that language while keeping English as the language used to display my desktop?

Ubuntu :: Language Support - Each User Can Select Their System Language When Login?

Nov 1, 2010

One computer .... three users .... three languages. How do you make that happen? User A speaks English and is happy with English. No problem. User B needs to use Chinese and would like the full system in Chinese. User C needs to use Thai and Chinese. They would prefer their menus to be in Thai and can use iBus for Chinese entry. How do you set up the system so that each user can select their system language when they login?

General :: Japanese Language IME Available In 10.4?

May 14, 2010

I just got used to Ubuntu and was using Easy Peasy. I wanted to upgrade because I was having a few issues with EP on my EeePc 900- I went to 10.4.

I am leaving to go study abroad in Japan in about 10 days and have everything configured except the Japanese language aspect.

I went to System -> Admin -> Language Support and installed the language files, etc. After reboot, they are installed...but there is no language box or any hint at all that I can use it.

There doesn't appear to be a shortcut like ALT + SHIFT in Windows.

In the simplest terms possible (i.e. step by step), how can I be able to type Japanese in Office, Firefox, Evolution, IM, etc.?

I even do reset in my keyboard layout setting and in KDE setting but it didn't help.

Apr 26, 2010

So for example, I uses VBscript to script out my tasks in Windows, and more recently PowerShell.From a Linux Admin's point of view, what scripting would he/she need to know? Would being proficient in Bash be sufficient or should you supplement that with something else? (if so, what is that something?)

General :: Is Specifying A Font For A Specific Language Or Script Possible?

Mar 12, 2011

As a bilingual user, I have a lot of things that someone like that has to have like a lot of UNIcode fonts of the languages I use and keyboard layouts.My question is really simple (though the answer may not ):Is it possible to specify a specific font for a specific language?For example:

I have about four different looking Singhalese fonts on my system:
2. Bashitha
3. Malithi
4. another one... (awkward)

right now my system uses LKLUG, but I'd like to use Bashitha since it's more easy to read. How do I do this? Things like setting the system wide font in SystemSettings or other ways is not what I'm looking for though... my System font is DejaVu Sans, and I want the System to use Bashitha ONLY for the Singhalese text and DejaVu Sans for the rest..I tried modifying the ~/.fonts.conf file..

General :: Language Learning Software - Libraries?

Oct 28, 2010

I'm cross-posting in order to get as a wider audience to get as much feedback as possible. I am currently studying to learn the ) Gidhlig (Scottish Gaelic language and finding studying by rote out of a book a bit 'limiting'. Because of this, I am thinking about creating a software project which could act as an interactive way to helping me learn the language. I've got a few ideas floating in my head but the direction I want to take is that the software is not an alternative but an aid to be used in conjunction with traditional studying materials. I was thinking possibly small interactive games or exercises that both are fun as well as to test and use the parts of language I have learned. There might also be a bit of reporting to show strengths and weaknesses.

Firstly, the technical specifications, that offhand, I can think of that the project will need to meet:

1. Cross-platform (while I would like it to be just Linux, I have to be realistic that people would rather use Windows)

2. The language data is separate from main program so that the software can be used with other languages.

3. Not too complex so that it is quick and easy to program as I will be doing it myself.........
