Re: Hello Debian users

Hello Paul,
No the installer is not the issue. Just typing in Georgian using a normal qwerty keyboard. I do not want to use Ubuntu because Debian is so much better for me. Also I am not complaining because the software is old. I don't mind old, and I certainly prefer old and stable, that is why I use Debian. Just how to fix this important missing feature. I guess I will wait for Debian 11.

Debian 11 bullseye has ibus-m17n 1.4.3:


Ubuntu has ibus-m17n 1.4.3 because ibus-m17n 1.4.3 was imported into
Debian by the Debian Input Method team and then Ubuntu automatically
synced it to their archive.


PS: if you would like to add support for Georgian to the Debian
installer, website, wiki etc, please review the information at the
bottom of this page:


It appears there is some support for Georgian in the Debian installer,
but there is none in the website/wiki/etc and there is no mailing list
for Georgian translators. You can discuss this on the debian-i18n
mailing list.
