setxkbmap -query layout us,in -variant ,tam
to be able to enter tamil characters. I've not used it before, so I can't find the keys on the keyboard very easily. I've used
xkbcomp /usr/share/X11/xkb/geometry/microsoft - | xkbprint -color -o - - | ps2pdf - > out.pdf
to view a map of the geometry of the keyboard. But I'd like to be able to view the actual unicode symbols on the keys. I see things like
<AE00> on the pdf.
