Check for existing support[सम्पादन]

The following table compares how a correctly enabled computer would render the following scripts with how your computer renders them:

Script Correct rendering Your computer
Marathi Examples.of.complex.text.rendering.Devanagari.png क + ि →कि

If the rendering on your computer matches the rendering in the images for the scripts, then you have already enabled complex text support! You should be able to view text correctly in that script. However this does not mean you will be able to edit text in that script. To edit such text you need to have the appropriate text entry software on your operating system.

Windows 3.1x, 95, 98, ME and NT[सम्पादन]

These operating systems contain no support for Marathi script. Downloading Internet Explorer 6.0 should enable you to view Marathi script on these operating systems but you will not be able to edit any Marathi text. If after downloading Internet Explorer, you still cannot view Marathi scripts please install an Unicode font (See bottom of this page)

Mozilla Firefox does not support Marathi script on these operating systems unless a modified version of the program is used, such as the one found here.

Windows 2000[सम्पादन]

Complex text support needs to be manually enabled.

  • In the "Language settings for this system" frame, check the box next to "Indic".
  • Copy the appropriate files from the Windows 2000 CD when prompted.

Windows Vista[सम्पादन]

Complex text support is automatically enabled.

Viewing Marathi text[सम्पादन]

You do not need to do anything to enable viewing of Marathi text.

Inputting Marathi text[सम्पादन]

Same as that of Windows XP/2003

Mac OS X 10.4[सम्पादन]

Viewing Marathi text[सम्पादन]

You do not need to do anything to enable viewing of Marathi text. en:Safari, however, seems to render text better and more reliably than en:Firefox. Opera also provides some support, although it isn't perfect.

Inputting Marathi text[सम्पादन]

Specific keyboard layouts can be enabled in System Preferences, in the International pane. Switching among enabled keyboard layouts is done through the input menu in the upper right corner of the screen. The input menu appears as an icon indicating the current input method or keyboard layout — often a flag identified with the country, language, or script. Specific instructions are available from the "Help" menu (search for "Writing text in other languages"). SIL distributes a freeware Ukelele that allows anyone to design their own input keyboard for Mac OS X.

GNOME[सम्पादन]

Viewing Marathi text[सम्पादन]

You do not need to do anything to enable viewing of Marathi text in GNOME 2.8 or later. Older versions may have support for some, but not all Indic scripts. Ensure you have appropriate Unicode fonts for each script you wish to view or edit.

When using Mozilla or Mozilla Firefox, you must enable Pango rendering by opening xterm and typing MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO=1 mozilla or MOZ_ENABLE_PANGO=1 firefox. After this, all future sessions of Mozilla or Firefox will have Indic language support. This will work only on Firefox compiled with ctl support. Only the firefox binaries supplied by Fedora Core 4 and 5, Ubuntu Linux, and Kate OS are compiled with this ctl and set this option, by default.

For Ubuntu 6.06, this support has been turned off due to speed issues. To enable support, you must type MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=0 firefox. Future sessions do not remember this setting, so it must be repeated.

Inputting Marathi text[सम्पादन]

  • Go to Applications > Preferences > Keyboard.
  • Select the "Layouts" tab.
  • Select the keyboard for the language or script you wish to use from the "Available Layouts" frame and then press "Add".
  • Press "Close" to discard the dialogue box.
  • Right click on the main menu on your desktop and select "Add to Panel...".
  • Select "Keyboard Indicator" and click "Add".
  • Position the keyboard indicator on your menu bar and click it to switch between keyboard layouts.

Another option is to use SCIM, to enable that,

  • Install Hindi font support, groupinstall hindi-support
  • Then enable SCIM, and use Hindi phonetic support
