The paper proposes several approaches for extending the possibility to write Medieval Slavonic Cyrillic and Glagolitic letters in GNU/Linux environment. This is achived by extension of existing keyboard layout, inclusion of newly defined Glagolitic one and by adding more combinations of keys through the multi key (compose key) technique. The proposal is tested and works in openSUSE GNU/LINUX distributions versions 11.3 through 13.2, the rolling release version Tumbleweed with KDE4, Plasma 5 and GNOME desktop environments.
In 2004, when the Department for Digitization of Scientific Heritage was cre¬ated within the Institute for Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, several key areas of its work had been defined: general methodology and practical setting for digitization of cultural and scientific heritage; digitization of medieval manuscripts (incl. digital imaging, cataloguing, text representation, electronic publishing); digitization of mathematical texts; audio archives: methods for digitization and restoration; application of quantitative methods for the study of data related to the cultural heritage, and applications of edutainment to cultural heritage studies. This paper presents the development of the research and practical work in the last three years of the existence of the department when unique mixture of experience and competences on the Bulgarian setting were achieved. The paper concludes with ideas for future development.
