Probhat

The Probhat layout is redesigned by Ankur. Most of the Linux distro are including this layout with their latest releases. And it has been real easy using Probhat on Windows using Avro.

Since OS X supports custom keylaout files, I created this layout based on the original Probhat layout.

There may have been similar Probhat keylaouts around there, but this one supports OS X actions using the following hotkeys.

CMD ALT CTRL

Which means, even when Probhat layout is activated, you can hit ⌘+A to select all, ⌘+C to copy, ⌃+D to send EOF or other ⌘+⌥ combinations.

Install

Run the following command in Terminal.

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mdminhazulhaque/probhat-osx/master/install.sh | sudo bash

Then enter your password so the installer script can copy the necessary files to /Library/Keyboard\ Layouts directory.

Uninstall

Run the following command in Terminal.

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mdminhazulhaque/probhat-osx/master/uninstall.sh | sudo bash

Now reboot or logout to apply the changes.

Configure

  1. Reboot, or log out and log in again after installing.

  2. Open System Preferences. Then go to Language & Region > Keyboard Preferences > Input Sources.

  3. Click the + sign, then select Others > Probhat with Bangladeshi flag.

  4. Get back to Keyboard Preferences > Shortcuts > Input Sources and turn on Select the previous input source with shortcut key ⌘+Space.

  5. Now you will see Probhat on input method list on menu bar.

  6. Hit any text editor, browser, Facebook or whatever, press ⌘+Space and start typing Bangla in Probhat!
