Chinese input

Postby mikobaku on Tue May 13, 2008 9:16 am

I have been having the hardest time getting scim to work in linux mint. I first installed it the same way I did in ubuntu:

1. downloaded chinese language files in Language Support; found Language Code with: locale | grep LANG=
2. sudo apt-get install scim-qtimm im-switch scim-pinyin
3. im-switch -z <LANGUAGE CODE> -s scim
4. then enabled asian language support in open office

In ubuntu - this is all that was needed. I had a keyboard icon in the panel and when I clicked it I would be given the list of input methods which I could then choose no matter which application I was using.

This did not work in linux mint. I have been searching and trying different solutions (one was in the scim firefox thunderbird thread) but none have gotten the input working. SCIM has it's setup, I've gone through that and looked for something to activate it, but no luck. I don't quite know what to try next.

Any ideas?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Search for scim in the forum - I think you find it, perhaps this one

Thank you for the link - that was more Japanese based, however. I decided to redo everything and see what would happen. I reinstalled LinuxMint, and then I followed the above protocol again (that I outlined in the original post), and it worked this time.

I apologize for the confusion - the above protocol works well and is simple enough.
