Avro phonetic for Linux

Avro phonetic implementation for Linux in IBus.

Installation & Usage

Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 16.10, 17.04, 17.10 (32/64-bit)

  1. Please run these commands from the terminal. Never forget to be in relevant directory.
    sudo apt install gjs gir1.2-ibus-1.0 libibus-1.0-5 libibus-1.0-dev ibus-gtk ibus-gtk3 ibus-clutter ibus-qt4 ibus
    wget "https://github.com/maateen/avro/releases/download/v2.1/avro_2.1-3_all.deb"
    sudo dpkg -i avro_2.1-3_all.deb

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

  2. Go to System Settings -> Language Support from Unity Launcher
  3. Look at the Keyboard input method system
  4. Select IBus and close the window.
  5. I believe that you need to restart IBus to make everything work fine. Try the following command:
    ibus restart
  6. Now go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Text Entry.
  7. Search and add Avro Phonetic as input source. That’s all.
