For all fans of bolnagri , it just became easier (goodbye scim!).
bolnagri map is now being combined into the common Indic xkb map.. so
it will be available always & directly selected through traditional
keyboard selection tools of GNOME & KDE etc.
For the impatient.. download
& do the following (as root)
# cp in.txt /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/
# cd /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols
# cp in in.orig
# mv in.txt in
(all this will not be needed to be done in future, once the map is
included into Xorg, then it will always be available, not needing a
then just open your keyboard applet and select ‘India’, in which
select ‘bolnagri’ & follow usual keyboard switching shortcuts (Left
Alt+Shift) or which ever is set.
Note: matras come by default when using ( a, e ,i , o , u ), use it
with Right Alt + key or Shift + Right Alt + key to get the vowel
for à¤“ – Ralt + o , for à¤” – Shift+Ralt+o
New deb package for bolnagri released, for Debian Etch and
derivatives. Should also work on Ubuntu 6.10/7.04
this takes into account the recent changes in location of xkb maps in
available in FRS
Thanks to Kartik Mistry for building package.

In the ongoing process of revamping Indlinux.org website, wiki upgraded to mediawiki 1.5.6 . All Wiki user accounts will also go for a review & invalid ones (history of spamming, lost passwords, unreachable email ids) dropped. A Todo for later is confirmation of new account, by email verification.
First page (index.html) will also have to get a new look, while wiki is reorganized to make it more easily navigable, with no new page going in as orphan page.
Some more planned website activities outlined here.
