The ibus-m17n language provides a wide variety of input methods. Here is an extensive list of all of the languages it covers:

Languages under ibus-m17n
Uzbek Urdu Ukrainian Uighur Tibetan Thai Telugu Tamil Swedish Slovak
Sinhala Sindhi Siksika Serbian Sanskrit Russian Pushto Persian Panjabi Oriya

Kannada Japanese Inuktitut Hungarian Hindi Hebrew Gujarati Ancient Greek Modern Greek Georgian
French Esperanto Dhivehi Danish Czech Croatian Cree Chinese Burmese Belarusian

Because of this it is preferred for installing for languages that are not available by default in IBus, XKB or don't have a separate plugin that provides better functionality.

Installation

To install it run:

root # emerge ibus-m17n

then restart ibus:

user $ ibus restart

then head to the ibus-setup GUI, open the Input Method tab, click on the Add button and search for the input method you want to add.
