Thank you so much Walter and sorry that I am very new to these thing. What
I have understood so far is :
.mfg-date will list the predefined set to stored data. And we need to set
KL to 'np' ( this the name of maping file for Nepali under
) and we need to set some value ( np? ) to KV as well. And we need to
decide on a key combination to invoke the keyboard switching between the
default(English) and Nepali.
Since there is no physical : Language key, I think keyboard combination
like alt+space bar should be easy. Please suggest if there is other
consideration we need to think of.
But I am still wondering how we could alter/change the stored data to our
preference or if we can do it ourselves. Please suggest.
