So for stability issues, I had to switch back to MX Linux, in its KDE version, since I am a KDE lover. But this time, something very unusual happened. I installed ibus-avro properly, added that in ibus-preferences, added the required lines in ~/.bashsrc and made ibus-daemon run automatically upon booting. Ibus-daemon is running in the background, I can select Avro phonetic, but whatever I type comes in plain English, not in Bengali. To mention, Bengali fonts are visible in chrome or any kind of docx format. But don't know why, ibus-daemon is having trouble typing Bengali, despite selecting Avro phonetic in the input method. Can anyone help me in this issue?

Actually, the problem was with KDE, it seems to have a hard time with IBus. IBus usually prefers gtk file finders, whereas, by default, in KDE, the file finder package is Qt. So it(IBus) gets itself stuck in a collision. And eventually, the problem has no apparent solution. Even you log out after installation, you may see that IBus is not working. Most of the time, after installing a new input method through IBus in KDE, you are advised to shut down to things take effect.
