Description Goran Blagojevic 2004-07-04 08:16:18 EDT
Description of problem:
It is not possible to type two bytes Unicode caracters. That is, when
I try to type ĆćČčĐ𩹮ž (Serbian Latin) or ЋћЧчЂђШшЖж (Serbian
Cyrillic) I get two characters instead of one.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Open Office 1.1.0 (from Fedora 1 Final), Open Office 1.1.1 (this
package is default for Fedora 2 Final), Open Office 1.1.2 (downloaded
from www.openoffice.org)

How reproducible:
It is always reproducible by openning Open Office, choosing Serbian
Latin or Serbian Cyrillic kyeboard, and typing Serbian letters

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Open Office
2. Choose Serbian Latin keyboard (the same as Slovenian)
3. Press key [ on English USA keyboard
  
Actual results:
Å¡ (U+0041 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A + U+030A COMBINING RING ABOVE and
    U+00A1 INVERTED EXCLAMATION MARK)

Expected results:
Å¡ (U+0073 LATIN SMALL LETTER S + U+030C COMBINING CARON)

Additional info:
I have added into:
<my_home_folder>/.bash_profile
three lines:
LANG=$LANG:sr.UTF-8
LANG=$LANG:sl.UTF-8
export LANG
and now I can type Serbian letters as well as English ones, but now I
cannot type Serbian letters on console that I do not needed in fact. I
have not had any problems with KWrite or AbiWord before or after
inserting my three lines into .bash_profile
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2004-07-04 13:27:07 EDT
Please update to the current version of OOo from Rawhide.  It includes
a fix for this problem (workaround is to _un_set your USE_XOPENIM
environment variable).

USE_XOPENIM=
export USE_XOPENIM

or for tcsh:
setenv USE_XOPENIM

Or, put this line right after the "here we go" line at the bottom of
/usr/bin/ooffice:

$ENV{USE_XOPENIM}="";
