    I am finding difficult to work in Kannada – in ubuntu 13.04 and 13.10 wherein ibus or superbus does not work properly.
    As such I am using only pad-4.1. However unable to type in gedit in the absence of IME tool and also itrans tool in ubuntu 13.04 does not work properly(phonetict way of typing). As a special case, kindly create padaIME for LINUX – for benefit of linux users earliest possible. When pada-4.1 works 100% as pada pad in linux wonderfully, it will not difficult for you create PADA IME for linux – which is a must.

    Awaiting wonderful padaIME tool from you.

    With choicest Blessings,
