After a long time, I’ve tried to do something for Avro in Linux. I know we’ve done a temporary solution. But believe me, that’s enough for now. According to Sarim Khan, he’s implementing Avro again from scratch in Go lang. I hope, within two or three months, we’ll get a new static binary of Avro what will be distro independent. But till then, try this way to get Avro installed in your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
(#installation–usage)Installation & Usage
Please run these commands from the terminal. Never forget to be in the relevant directory.
sudo apt install gjs gir1.2-ibus-1.0 libibus-1.0-5 libibus-1.0-dev ibus-gtk ibus-gtk3 ibus-clutter ibus-qt4
sudo dpkg -i avro_2.1-3_all.deb
I hope, all is well now and the installation has been finished.
Go to System Settings -> Language Support from Unity Launcher
Look at the *Keyboard input method system*
Select IBus and close the window.
I believe that you need to restart IBus to make everything work fine. Try the following command:
Now go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Text Entry
Search and add Avro Phonetic as an input source.
If you still can’t use Avro, please reboot your PC and try from 2 again. That’s all.
