Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-10-09 16:03:15 UTC
We can do this just as soon as the keyboard situation is settled.

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2008-10-23 15:10:05 UTC
If you could give me the following information, I can commit this:

- console font to use
- X font to use
- keyboard layout/options/etc.
- timezone

Comment 3 Victor Ibragimov 2008-10-27 08:16:39 UTC
- Console font and X font to use:

Any of the unicode (utf-8) fonts with the special characters can be used for Tajik language support.

- Keyboard layout/options/etc.

Two keyboard layout options:

1) Tajikistan - Standard

Description of the layout:
Standard Tojiki Keyboard Layout by Tojik Standard Agency
Date: 12 October, 2008 - Dushanbe, Tajikistan
Created by Victor Ibragimov <>
For Tajik Fedora & Software Localization Team
The Standard Tojiki Keyboard Layout is based on Russian Keyboard with the replacement of keys:
AB07 Cyrillic_softsign "ь Ь" by AB07 "ӣ Ӣ"
AC02 Cyrillic_yeru "ы Ы " by AC02 "ҷ Ҷ "
AD02 Cyrillic_tse "ц Ц" by AD02 "қ Қ"
AD09 Cyrillic_shcha "щ Щ" by AD09 "ҳ Ҳ"
AE11 Minus, Underscore "- _" by AE11 "ғ Ғ"
AE12 Equal, Plus "= +" by AE12 "ӯ Ӯ"

Pablo Saratxaga <pablo@mandrakesoft> (for the dead keys changes)
Based on Tajik keyboard. It is a Russian layout keyboard, with SHCHA replaced with 
dead_cedilla/dead_macron, that allows to type the SHCHA with dead_cedilla + SHA
and all the extra Tajik keys:
dead_cedilla + KA, HA --> KA descender, HA descender
dead_macron + I, U, GHE --> I macron, U macron, GHE horizontal stroke
it requires proper dead_cedilla and dead_macron entries in Compose file
it also allows to use Mode_switch when in cyrillic mode to enter
special letters by doing Mode_switch + base letter

- Timezone

Dushanbe, Asia/Tajikistan (TJ)

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2008-12-05 17:55:53 UTC
This should be supported in the next version of anaconda.  Please give it a try and let us know if the keyboard or language settings are not quite right.

Comment 6 Victor Ibragimov 2008-12-06 08:07:42 UTC
Thank you Chris, I will provide comments for the Tajik keyboard and language settings after we duly test the current version of Fedora.

Comment 7 Victor Ibragimov 2008-12-09 15:31:52 UTC
I have installed both Fedora Gnome&KDE, language settings are ok.
Tajik keyboard is not working...

Comment 8 Chris Lumens 2009-02-16 20:18:32 UTC
Martin committed a patch for various keyboard layout fixes not too long ago.  Please try again with F10 beta.
