bad accents on some apps like lyx

Description of problem:
Accents in Lyx and others programs appear NEXT to vowels; they work OK
<a href="http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88151">Look this
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.6.0-1, kde 3.3.1-2.2, qt-3.3.3-8, lyx-1.3.5-1.1.fc3.rf
Steps to Reproduce:
FYI, koffice suffers the same problem.
IMO, this bug should be assigned to qt, as it is the immodule patch
responsible. Disabling immodule makes things work again.
you could try moving/renaming
to see if that helps.
How could i disable the immodule?
I try moving and renaming that directory and don't solve the problem :(
The only way to completely disable immodule is to rebuild qt without
the immodule patch.
You could try the qt rpms from
which has immodule disabled (primarily due to this bug).
I have installed FC2 and the problem dissapear:
Kernel 2.6.5-1.358 KDE 3.2.2-4 qt 3.3.2-2 and lyx 1.3.5-1.1
FYI, from qt's changelog:
* Thu Jul 01 2004 Than Ngo <firstname.lastname@example.org> 1:3.3.2-10
- add immodule for Qt
Looks like immodule wasn't added until later.
Actually I have:
Kernel 2.6.9-1.6_FC2, KDE 3.2.2.-8.FC2, qt-3.3.3-0.1 and
With those components works fine; maybe with KDE 3.3 fail?
I doubt kde has anything to do with it as lyx is a qt-only program.
Do you think that qt is the problem?
Yes, qt and the immodule patch is the problem. That's what I've been
saying the whole time.
I don't know what is the immodule; On qt site don't speak about this
problem or similar
Sorry, here's a better link:
I have sent a mail to email@example.com, explain the
problem; waiting ...
I've confirmed qt-3.3.3-15 still exhibits the same (bad) behavior.
dead-keys do not function properly in either kword or lyx.
One can at least copy-n-paste in accented characters into kword.
Pasting accented characters into lyx generates bogus/garbage looking
Can you try if:
# export QT_IM_MODULE=simple
before running the application helps?

bad accents on lyx
Don't function export qt.... see
Please redhat team (Ngo Than), what's happen? any solution? any ...?
I got the qt package from the kde-redhat project from:
After installing it, the accents in lyx are now working as expected.
But I don't know if this will have any impact on other programs. May
be on KDE? Well, I use gnome.
Great! Works fine, by now. Thanks
It look like we have to fix lyx. Please see:
We do not include lyx. Any pointer on upstream contacts, or anyone
have tried to talk to the upstream about it?
lyx is included in Fedora Extras.
With the new version of qt package (3.3.3.-16.3.3) everything works fine.
i think lyx needs to be fixed in this case! and Kazuki is willing to
fix this problem in lyx.
FYI, koffice is busted too.
i have done the backport for koffice-1.3.5-3. It now fixes this problem.
Please don't forget to update qt-3.3.4-4, which is required for this.
Thanks Ngo, fabulous!
