X will not start automatically. It is to be started manually and the method is given in the last link and is reproduced below

menu>shutdown>Restart X server.

menu is located at the bottom left corner. A screen shot is given in the attached file

Sorry I did not mention clearly of course i did a manual xrestart but it gave errors and said x cannot start. So I had to go back to the preinstall state to start x. (somehow scim writes something in xorg.conf and xinit.rc which makes x unstartable????

To sjsrikanth
I has some ideas, you can use (if you use gtk-2.0 for input). (After the installation 4 pet packages you 'd downloaded)

Three important notes:
(1) You must have this entry in your /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules
Code:

# GTK+ Input Method Modules file
# Automatically generated file, do not edit
# Created by /mnt/sdb3/temp13-pup4/gtk+-2.14.7/gtk/.libs/lt-gtk-query-immodules-2.0 from gtk+-2.14.7
#
# ModulesPath = /root/.gtk-2.0/2.10.0/i486-pc-linux-gnu/immodules:/root/.gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodules:/root/.gtk-2.0/i486-pc-linux-gnu/immodules:/root/.gtk-2.0/immodules:/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/i486-pc-linux-gnu/immodules:/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodules:/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/i486-pc-linux-gnu/immodules:/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/immodules
#
"/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/immodules/im-scim.so"
"scim" "SCIM Input Method" "" "" ""


(2) Your /root/.xinitrc may be like this:
Code:

#!/bin/sh
# $Xorg: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.3 2000/08/17 19:54:30 cpqbld Exp $

export XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM"
GTK_IM_MODULE=scim
export GTK_IM_MODULE

. /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE

(Add three lines before ". /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE

(3) Put the file im-scim.so in /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/immodules/

(4) In console input this command: restartwm

(Edited for typo-errors)

To sjsrikanth

Perhaps your hardware or its settings may not be compatible with m17n. To check this, boot in RAM and install the 4 pets. If you are able to type in Indian languages, your hardware is OK. In that case some of the other installed packages in your installation may be preventing the functioning of m17n. To verify this, install the other packages also in the RAM installation, one by one, checking for Indian languages after each installation. When you are not able to type in Indian languages, the package just installed is the trouble maker. This may shed more light on the problem.

Download the unicode font from

http://www.kamban.com.au/fonts/maduram.ttf

install in usr/share/fonts/default/TTF

Install the firefox addon from

http://code.google.com/p/easytamil/

(restart firefox after adding the add-on, clickon " tools- Easy tamil - enabled"

then type in tamil!!

here is another step I did which I don't know if it is necessary

In firefox

Click Edit-preferences-content tab- choose languages add tamil from the list.

Followed the instructions and I was able to type in Tamil. I think this method will not work outside firefox.

The last step is not necessary since the method works even if Tamil is not there in the preferences list.
