IMPORTANT NOTE: This guide does not work as of Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. Please see my new guide for directions on getting KMFL to work with iBus.
Here’s the simple process for installing Koine Greek input method support for Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon:
- Make sure you have
- Add this repository to your apt sources:
deb http://packages.sil.org/ubuntu gutsy main
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install scim-kmfl-imengine kmflcomp
- Download scim-greek-koine.tar.gz, which contains a KMFL engine file I got from somewhere else that I have modified to work.
- Extract the tarfile and compile the kmfl file by running
scim-setup, click on the new “KMFL” option, click install, browse to the GrkPolyComp.kmfl file you just compiled.
It was a twisty road to get to this point, so if it doesn’t work for you, post in the comments and I’ll try to help you work it out.
