Description

The m17n keymaps for Indic languages that follows new Enhanced Inscript draft standard(Inscript2). We need Inscript2 keymap testing just to ensure with latest Gnome 3.8.x packages we can use Inscript2 keymaps.

Setup

Follow up to the steps in QA:Testcase i18n input method setup to configure the input method on the desktop.

  1. Add any input sources which has (m17n) in the name.

How to test

A] First we need to enable extended layer which can be switched on by using AltGr key.

1) Start the gnome-control-center and click on "Keyboard"

2) Then click on the Shortcuts tab and then on left side click on "Typing"

3) Click on "Alternative character key" and then on "Disabled" to choose its new value "Right Alt"

4) Also you need to add inscript2 keymap in input-sources tab under region panel in gnome-control-center

5) Select this keymap from the 2-letter language icon on the panel at right top of your screen.

Once you are done with the above steps you can then start input using this keymap. To test whether extended layer is working or not, just try to input <AltGr + f > or <AltGr + r> or <AltGr + 4>. These are the input keys that most keymaps have mappings. If you will see the corresponding character using any of the 3 inputs then you have a working Inscript2 keymap.

Note:- AltGr key is same as "Right Alt" key


B] Other way to test Inscript2 keymap is to use gnome-shell-extension-iok.

1) Install gnome-shell-extension-iok package

2) enable this extension using gnome-tweak-tool

3) click on iok icon in top right corner. This will open iok with preloaded Inscript2 kemap in your current locale.

Expected Results

Selected language should output characters as per the Draft of Enhanced inscript
