Description of problem:
Currently qt3 does not have any im module feature like gtk+2 and
locked to support XIM only. Fortunately there is a group of developer
which is developing this feature outside of trolltech.
They are cooperating with Trolltech however because it is a feature
addon so they would not able to add it into Qt 3.3.x release due to
their bugfix-only policy for minor version releases.
This is essential patch to plug in other input method system (such as
Current patch for qt immodule:
Leon, i will add this patch in next rebuild. Did you already test this
patch if this works?
For me, qt built with this patch seems to break the kde system tray
and taskbar (they appear blank when first logging in). Though,
restarting these applets makes items appear again.
I've tried rebuilding kdelibs/kdebase against the new qt in case bc
was a problem, but I saw no change in behavior.
Only by rebuilding qt without the immodules patch made the kde system
tray and taskbar properly functional again.
I have tested in rawhide installation and seems the taskbar and
systray are okay (I can see RHN applet, and i can see running tasks).
Any specific environment are you running in? Is it a refresh installation?
It would be great if you can create a new bug regarding this problem
(pls cc: me). Thanks.
I'll keep investigating, and open a new report, thanks.
FYI, see bug #132304 for details about the problem I was having with
immodule. The "Application Launcher" kicker/panel applet appears to
be to blame.
