I am new to linux, recently i downloaded ubuntu dapper version and installed 
it successfully. It is plain default installation.

I would like to use Uubuntu for typing Tamil documents and sending emails in 

kindly requesting this group to guide me step by step methods / 
installations to be followed to achieve my task of typing Tamil documents 
and send tamil emails.

As of now, i am poor in tamil typing and also used with ms windows based 
transliteration programs, i also kindly request you to suggest me the ways 
of installing tamil transliteration programs in ubuntu.

Also, suggest me, how to display the tamil keyboard layout in ubuntu.

thanking you in advance
