IndLinux – a project which creates a Linux distribution that supports Indian Languages at all levels. This Indianisation project will strive to bring the benefits of Information Technology down to the Indian masses. We want to make technology accessible to the majority of India that does not speak English.
The task of localization has several pieces that need domain expertise. Some examples are I/O modules, development of fonts, kernel enablemnt, word translation etc. The project is looking for experts and volunteers to champion the cause of Indian language computing. You may volunteer and participate here.
The Indian Linux project is open source and completely free. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License.
A language package provided by the project can be installed on any Linux based distribution.
The Rangoli is a multilingual Live CD with Hindi and Tamil support of the KDE 3.4.3 desktop environment, and Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Nepali, Dzongkha and Telugu support of the Gnome 2.10 desktop.
