I am using the setup of IndLinux http://sourceforge.net/projects/indlinux/ is the url of the project. They provide keyboard maps for Devnagari and other indian languages to work with unicode. I can successfully use my setup with gnome software like gedit and gaim. I am using the gkb applett to switch the keyboard layouts. When I switch to french keyboardlayout ... it works, I can type in french (typing the question mark prints the funny dna like character). But when I switch to Devnagari and press both the shift keys (to switch between english layout and devnagari... which works with gedit,gaim) and then type anything.... the cursor doesnt move... I dont see anything happening. I cannot type devnagari in say the yahoo mail forms... or compose my own mail in mozilla. Spundun Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install IndLinux as per the README guidance 2.configure and try gkb with Devnagari layout 3.try to type in anyof the mozilla boxes Actual Results: nothing happens Expected Results: devnagari unicode text should appear
If you use a --enable-ctl build for mozilla this problem will not occur. For more details see http://geocities.com/alkuma/seehindi.html (refresh)

Sun's fonts now come in truetype as well and they work with Xft-build of Mozilla with CTL-enabled. Would you update your page? (see bug 203406)
Sorry guys ... but since my laptop got stolen.. I have bought a new powerbook and I am working on Mac osx so cant test this bug with newr versions of Mozilla and Firefox... As far as I am concerned... you can close this bug.. but I dont know if its fixed or not. Meanwhile for MacOS X .. I have filed an new bug #249618 Spundun

Closing this bug. Firefox has gone through many generations since I opened this bug, and so have my macbookpros. But I just installed VMWare and used firefox through an ubuntu virtual machine and sure enough, gujarati keyboard layout works like a charm. SO this bug has been fixed, probably for many years.
