How to type Unicode Hindi in Remington (Krutidev series) Keyboard in Linux?


Online, the easiest way-

Use this online tool (you can use it offline too by saving it at appropriate location,)

http://raviratlami.googlepages.com/Remington-Krutidev-Online-Hindi-Easy-Editor.htm

Offline way, you need to install a remington binary file for scim:

Make sure you have installed latest version of SCIM.

Download this binary file - dev.remington.bin from here:

http://oriya.sarovar.org/download/dev.remington.bin

And copy it to /usr/share/scim/tables.


Restart SCIM.

There should now be an entry for Remington
under Hindi.

You can also copy

to /usr/share/scim/icons.

(thanks to Gora Mohanti, gora at sarai dot net for the offline tip)

Hi Ravi,

इस की बोर्ड को ट्राई कर के देखे |‌
http://remington.tangere.in/

we have corrected the order of matras and a few more problems with a few akshars, that made the typical available remington keyboards different from native remington or kruti dev style typing.

Warm regards,
Pankaj
