Is there any easy method from the end-user side that can add a new keymap for Thai?
I think it would be nice if Haiku can support Thai language.
And could you also add Thai fonts from this project https://linux.thai.net/projects/fonts-tlwg to Haiku? At least only the display fonts like Loma and Waree.
Once someone creates a Thai keymap we can add it to the image. I’m not really familiar with creating keymaps. Maybe the Advanced keymap manipulation section of the user guide can get you going?
If Thai needs a more complicated means to enter text, like an input method, thing are, er…m more complicated.
WRT a Thai font, check out the Noto_regional package in HaikuDepot. It should support also Thai. Alternatively, you can install any TTF by downloading and moving it into
Of course, it’d be nicer if Haiku would offer to download the needed font at the “FirstBootPrompt” where you select language and keymap, or at the “Installer” stage. But we’re not there yet…
