scim does not work with x86_64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
Installed and launched scim, scim-anthy, scim-i17n. When launched the gnome icon
appears by right clicking has no effect, nor has ctr-space, and the toolbar does
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux lampone 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 #1 SMP Tue Mar 28 03:38:47 EST 2006 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
When I launch scim under gnome the icon appears in the icon tray but clicking it
does not give me the list of input modes and ctr+space has no effect (note that
it worked perfectly with FC5t2 and FC5t3, but stopped working after my fresh
install of FC5).
I removed the current version and yum reinstalled all:
$ sudo rpm -e scim-libs scim scim-m17n scim-anthy
$ sudo yum install scim-libs scim scim-m17n scim-anthy

I rebooted, tried to launch scim from a fresh account. But same problem, the
icon appears and no input mode menus. No tool bar, no effect with ctr+space.
I believe you tried gtk2 apps, how about KDE (eg kedit) and X apps (eg xterm)?
And what is the output of "printenv | grep -i scim"?
Also any errors in install.log?

tried with xterm ... no change (I've not kde installed)

nothing at all (and scim daemon is running)

[root@lampone ~]# grep -i error install.log
[root@lampone ~]# grep -i scim install.log
I am very ready to install scim from scratch and test it on a fresh account
(indeed this is what I did before, so may you'd better send me precise
instructions). However notice that scim worked till fc5t3 with the very same
account I'm using now (I did a fresh install of FC5 but kept my several years
old home partition)

Ah, so does running
What locale are you running in? fr_FR.UTF-8?
You probably want to make a symlink like:
ln -s /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim ~/.xinput.d/fr_FR
or replace "fr_FR" with "default" if you want to use scim in your account
for any locale.
I originally assumed you already had this since you said you already had scim
working in fc5 test releases.
Gee, me stupid. I am so ashamed: when I did fresh install of FC5 I took the
occasion to remove some config files, some of which where several year old and
unused. Guess what? I removed ~/.xinput.d.
I really apologize for the time you lost on such a stupid mistake of mine. Sorry
and thanks ... "bug" closed.
