Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 183699
(qt XIM) scim XIM interface fails after some runtime
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:26 EST
Due to Bug #182177 we are currently using these environment variables in FC5 in
order to fallback to XIM for qt/KDE input until we can fix scim-qtimm. This
seems to work fine immediately after logging into my GNOME desktop session with
apps like Konqueror or Skype (both qt apps), but after a few hours of using my
desktop, all qt apps fail to start with messages like this:
[warren@caprica ~]$ konqueror
Failed to create XIM input context!
I suspect that this is actually a qt-specific problem and not scim's XIM
interface, because I am able to use XIM with gtk applications when qt apps fail
to start in my desktop session. Assigning to qt unless proven otherwise.
Jens, could Bug #183302 be the cause of this issue?
Possibly related, though the symptoms seem to be different.
It would be interesting to know whether this can be reproduced on FC4 or not.
I often encounter this problem even though the input method is not activated.
This is definitely a big issue for providing basic inputting in KDE/Qt
environment. Setting severity as high.

I cannot reproduce this problem with above steps with current rawhide.
It would be helpful for debugging if someone could gives the test case which
i can always reproduce this problem.

There are no steps... it seems to happen only after many hours of runtime during
a GNOME desktop session. Although I am running FC5.
Leon, you are running Rawhide and you can reproduce this?
could someone reproduce this issue in rawhide. I have tried
with above steps since 5 days and still cannot reproduce this.
I assume it's fixed in rawhide
