Oh, of course. Nice. They are between 40 and 120 kb which is OK. Will insert once I find out the proper image view in the post.
Thanks.

Re: How can I type Amharic in MX Linux 17 using iBus?

Yes they appear. The images are from external website link. I don't see it is possible to upload images to the forum from a user computer.
The forum is more available than external link. If something happens to the external link, the images will not show up?

Re: How can I type Amharic in MX Linux 17 using iBus?

Good idea! Thanks.
Edited from "1) Install iBus and necessary package from Synaptic." to "1) Installation from Synaptic."
Any idea about image link or upload situation?

Re: Type Amharic in MX Linux 17.1

Done!
Thanks for you concern.

Note: It would be great if one can upload the screenshots to the forum instead of a link. Is that the only option?
As for the forum rules I have produced the screenshots and uploaded to my site, to get a link.

Re: Type Amharic in MX Linux 17.1

The guide is ready. Not sure where to put it. May be under "MX - ACTIVELY DEVELOPED AND SUPPORTED > General"?
Please let me know, and thanks before hand.

Do we need this stored somewhere for future reference?
As for the reference, I think it may be needed?
I may also write a guide how to "prepare and type Amharic in MX Linux" with some texts and screenshots, if there is a place to put such a guide like this.
Cheers.

Re: Type Amharic in MX Linux 17.1

I should have tested one and one instead of both at once. Have now uninstalled ibus-gtk. Then the combination of only ibus-m17n and ibus-gtk3 works as intended.
Then if someone have similar issue, they will check one package instead of two.
Thanks for your warm welcome!

Many information here but got it to work by just installing ibus-gtk and ibus-gtk3 from Synaptic in addition to ibus...
