Yes I'm available. I'm at Cochin now. Home for easter. I will be back to Hyderabad (and hence my computer) by Wednesday 30th March.

Sorry for the delay. Too much work piled up.

You can try to start the ibus-varnam process manually from the source
directory. So messages will be printed on to the STDOUT. Please kill the
existing ibus-varnam executable before doing so.

You can also look at the logs
I think it gets generated inside ~/.local/config/ibus-varnam.

How are you placed in terms of your availability? Will you be able to
contribute to ibus engine and make it in a releasable shape? I can guide
you. And Balu is willing to package it for Debian. Let me know if you
are available.
