hi there...
i have search through the forum but i cant seem to find any topic about how to type chinese characters.

i'm wondering is there any function similar to windows where i can press ctrl + space to switch between typing english characters and chinese characters?

thanks in advance :)

SCIM causes other problems

I've found that installing SCIM can cause some applications to fail in unexpected ways. Thunderbird mail is one, and I had odd problems with things like Beryl as well after installing SCIM. I've seen some postings related to this but don't have anything to point you to. Search around. But if things go weird on you after installing SCIM, just remove it and your world should return to normal.

There is probably a fix for this somewhere, I just haven't found it.
