Ubuntu: How to install ibus-avro in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS?



Question:

I tried to install ibus-avro, using the procedure that applied in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. This procedure does not work in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Is there any other procedure to install avro in my new version of Ubuntu?


Solution:1

For Ubuntu 16.04 (32/64-bit)

Please run these commands from the terminal. Make sure you are in the right directory.

wget "https://github.com/maateen/avro/releases/download/v2.0/avro_2.0-1_all.deb"  sudo dpkg -i avro_2.0-1_all.deb  

If you get any dependency errors, then also run the following command:

sudo apt-get install -f  

I hope, all is well now and the installation has been finished.

Go to System Settings -> Language Support from Unity Launcher Look at the Keyboard input method system Select IBus and close the window.

I believe that you need to restart IBus to make everything work fine. Try the following command:

ibus restart  

After this a "reboot" is required. Now go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Text Entry. Search and add Avro Phonetic as input source. That's all.


Solution:2

Correction: Please make correction to your question. It's ibus-avro, not i-bus-avro.

Open a terminal and run these commands:

sudo apt install git ibus libibus-1.0-dev automake autoconf gjs ibus-1.0 gir1.2-ibus-1.0  cd /tmp  git clone https://github.com/sarim/ibus-avro.git  cd ibus-avro  aclocal && autoconf && automake --add-missing  ./configure --prefix=/usr  sudo make install  

This works on my Ubuntu MATE 16.04

N.B.: A restart might be required.
