An enhanced Inscript keyboard layout is now available as part of xorg package in Debian experimental. It probably has made it way to testing by now. I authored it. I might have submitted it as a patch, but that would have raised the hackles of the "no atomic chillu" brigade, who would have dropped an Atom bomb on me. The enhancements are:- - കൗ; not the other ghoulish old school "au". Unicode anyways recognises both as equivalent. - ർ, ൾ, ൺ, ൽ, ൻ at places recommended by the Kerala government's Malayalam Keyboard layout committee. Higher level modifiers (altgr, etc) are still a TODO. Waiting for finalisation of the CDAC's proposal on ehnanced qwerty INSCRIPT keyboard layout.
