Mkhedruli keyboard

Postby OrE » 2010-06-18, 17:04

I wanted to learn georgian so I installed mkhedruili input method in my ibus but I don't know how to type some characters. These are the one I get to type with my qwerty keyboard:
ყჳერთუიოფ
ასდჶგჰძქლ
ზხცვბნმ

Investigating and trying different I got to writ these:
ტ = .t
პ = .p
ღ = .g
კ = .k
წ = .c

What about ჟ, შ, ჩ, ჭ and ჯ? How can I type them?

I use a homemade table in SCIM, but I also have a table installed called ka-kbd, and it appears to match the one you're describing. I got the missing characters with:

ჩ = +c
ჟ = +z
შ = +s
ჯ = +j
ჭ = .+c

The source file for the table contains this substitution scheme:

("a" ?ა)
("b" ?ბ)
("g" ?გ)
("d" ?დ)
("e" ?ე)
("v" ?ვ)
("z" ?ზ)
("t" ?თ)
("i" ?ი)
(".k" ?კ)
("l" ?ლ)
("m" ?მ)
("n" ?ნ)
("o" ?ო)
(".p" ?პ)
("+z" ?ჟ)
("r" ?რ)
("s" ?ს)
(".t" ?ტ)
("u" ?უ)
("p" ?ფ)
("k" ?ქ)
(".g" ?ღ)
("q" ?ყ)
("+s" ?შ)
("+c" ?ჩ)
("c" ?ც)
("j" ?ძ)
(".c" ?წ)
(".+c" ?ჭ)
("x" ?ხ)
("+j" ?ჯ)
("h" ?ჰ)
("q1" ?ჴ)
("e0" ?ჱ)
("o1" ?ჵ)
("i1" ?ჲ)
("w" ?ჳ)
("f" ?ჶ)))


so I guess this table also supports the archaic characters like ჵ. Maybe I should start using this one instead of the one I rigged up.

Good luck :D

Oh, thank you! it works.

I'm using the ka-kbd on ibus from ibus-m17n. I should have looked that file myself but I always thought these files where precompiled or something, now I see they are good ol' Lisp.

By the way, does anybody know what keyboard distribution do georgians use if it is a fixed one? I suppose it is not qwerty but not sure.
