???????? ???????

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
separate install!)

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 ओ – Ralt + o , for औ – Shift+Ralt+o
