By default linux desktops come with a Tibetan keyboard compliant to GB/T 22034-2008, a Chinese norm. This keyboard is also used by Microsoft Windows.

To install, simply search for Tibetan when adding the new keyboard.

See Tibetan keyboards for more information.

Wylie EWTS


To add a Wylie keyboard, install the packages ibus and ibus-m17n with the package manager of your distribution. Then either make sure to start the ibus daemon, or simply restart your computer.

Then, when opening gnome settings, a three new Tibetan keyboards should be available: select EWTS (m17n) (not ‘Wylie’, which is an old version).
