Installation & Usage
Ubuntu (32/64-bit)

1. Please run these commands from the terminal. Never forget to be in the relevant directory.

Code:
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

Code:
wget "https://github.com/maateen/avro/releases/download/v2.1/avro_2.1-3_all.deb"

Code:
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:

Code:
ibus restart

6. Now go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Text Entry
7. Search and add Avro Phonetic as an input source.
8. If you still can't use Avro, please reboot your PC and try from 2 again. That's all.

Hi,

These are interesting and I believe valid observations. About 6 months ago I moved from arch to debian sqeeze. May I ask which distro you favor?

Thanks
if you would like to play with linux you can start playing with arch,
if you prefer a daily drive distro then debian is good choice
