    Using ibus-avro

    1. Click the IM icon in menubar and Select Text Entry Setting

    2. In Text Entry Setting window click + icon (marked by arrow) in left pane. Write avro in the search box (marked by arrow). Choose Bengali (Avro Phonetic) from the list and press Add button to add Avro to the list.

    3. (Optional) The keyboard shortcut to switch input method has been changed to Super+Space since Ubuntu 13.10. You can change it to your preference from Text Entry Setting window.

    4. Open any text editing software (like, gedit). Now Press Super+Space to toggle between English and Avro (Bengali)

    5. Enjoy Avro
