Summary/Abstract: 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.
