SCIM works in Firefox and Thunderbird only

Postby lotech on Fri Feb 22, 2008 2:52 am

I installed SCIM for Chinese input, but it only works on FF and TB, I can't bring up the input toolbar in any other apps I don't know why.
Do you Yahoo ? No I hiccup only ;p

There are lots of posts about the opposite of your experience....
Have you installed chinese locales
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install locales

or in case it's installed but not in use
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Hi,
You need install all packages with scim-bradge and all with language-selector (in Synaptic).
Them change entry in scim setup:
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim

and change:
GTK_IM_MODULE=xim

for
GTK_IM_MODULE="scim-bridge"

for more details or KDE users check:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SCIM
if scim will not show-up start it manually in terminal:
scim-bridge

I've tested it in Ubuntu 7.04 7.10 and in Mint 5.0.
Good luck!
