Setting up Malayalam and installing swanalekha in sabayon 4

Though the Sabayon 4 DVD release comes with SCIM , it’s not possible read Malayalam or write using swanalekha by the usual methods. Let’s see how to do it.

Type in terminal:

$sudo bash

#wget http://ershad.freehostia.com/download/AnjaliOldLipi.ttf

#cp AnjaliOldLipi.ttf /user/share/fonts/

Now you can read Malayalam :), To type using swanalekha, do the following :

#wget http://ershad.freehostia.com/download/install-swanalekha.tar.gz

#tar -xvf install-swanalekha.tar.gz

It’s done, Right click the text box, select “SCIM input method” and start typing !!

Select SCIM from right click menu

Unfortunately this is not working in firefox. Please inform me if there is any mistake or bug. Thanks to SMC πŸ™‚
