Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 157481
No Chinese input method even though Chinese support was chosen during installation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:05 EST
Description of problem:
Chinese support was chosen during the installation. Language was chosen to be
Chinese when logging in KDE (or Gnome). When Ctrl+Space was pressed (as I did in
FC3), no Chinese input method bar pop up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The following components were installed on my system:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose Language to be Chinese at the login interface
3. press Ctrl+Space to activate Chinese input method
No Chinese input method bar. No way to input Chinese.
Chinese input method bar appears and I can input Chinese by hitting the keyboard.
I tried running system-config-packages. The "Language Support" was not checked
when the window opens. (Note: I did check Chinese in "Language Support" while I
installed the FC4test3.) I tried choosing Chinese again in "Language Support"
and clicked on "Update". This time the following information appeared in the
Packages Not Found
The following packages could not be found on your system. Installation cannot
continue until they are installed.
Unlocatable package | Required by
This problem was solved after I installed two additional packages manually:
I don't know why these two packages were not included when Chinese language
support was chosen during the system installation. They are definitely required
and should be the default packages for Chinese support. By the way,
kde-i18n-Chinese and openoffice.org-langpack-zh_CN are not included either. They
should also be the default for Chinese language support.
Strange that you dont have iiimf-x installed after you finished installation?
Which installation path did you take? Desktop, WS, Server?
With iiimf-x, you should be able to input with chinput LE in qt apps. However,
with iiimf-qt, it is also possible but a bit buggy which is why it is not
included as default.

Ok, I used Custom installation path, but I didn't uncheck any iiimf related
packages. It's weird.
Is this bug still valid??
