Ubuntu: Unicode keyboard layout missing on Tamil [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

After upgrading to Ubuntu 17.04 from 16.10, I've lost the feature of typing in Unicode layout for Tamil language. Also there is no option to select Tamil (India) which was present in the version 16.10; instead it shows only Tamil (Sri Lanka).

I don't know how to get those things back. Currently I'm using IBus for typing in Indian Languages. But I wish it could be there in default keyboard options.


The Tamil keyboard layouts seem to have been hidden intentionally in version 2.19 of the xkb-data package, which is the one shipped with Ubuntu 17.04. You know better than me whether the reasoning behind that measure is reasonable. (I'd be interested to hear your view.)

Anyway, they are hidden and not dropped. If you open a terminal window and run this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.input-sources show-all-sources true  

the Tamil layouts should be shown in the user interface again.
