modifier keys not delivered to IME in OOo
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
scim allows to change IM with ctrl+shift and shift+ctrl by default. however it
do nothing on OOo.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run OOo and make sure scim is running and working.
2.press ctrl+shift or shift+ctrl
should change IM.
This works for me with 2.0.3-1.1. Can you check there, and if it doesn't work
reopen and tell me the locale that OOo was run in, that may be relevent.
sorry for late testing, I've tested 2.0.3-2.1. but any modifier keys are not
passed through OOo. then ctrl+shift, shift+ctrl even tapping alt doesn't work.
guess keyevents for only modifier keys is discarded?
ctrl+shift and ctrl+space work for me on rawhide, so I don't understand what is
different for you that causes this. locale ?
You're right. it looks like a scim-bridge bug. when I run OOo with
GTK_IM_MODULE=scim, it works fine. but not with GTK_IM_MODULE=scim-bridge. I'll
assign this to scim-bridge then.
This is because ooffice won't give IMContext key release events.
Scim-gtkim uses key snooper to grab these events, but it often causes problem in
(That's why I didn't use it)
At last, I've added "use key snooper on demand" feature in scim-bridge-0.2.0-rc3
in the cvs repository.
You can enable this feature by setting the environmental variable as "export
That is, you can use such keystrokes in ooffice when you launch it with that
Notice, I won't recommand you to use this feature in every application.
Use this only in ooffice by creating a shell script.
Dairiki-san, thank you for this option.
I built scim-bridge-0.2.0-0.1.20060614 for FC devel.
Now that openoffice.org is working with IM input again, I confirm that
this is now fixed in current scim-bridge (tested with 0.2.3-1).
Retesting, actually it only works with SCIM_BRIDGE_KEY_SNOOPER_ENABLED=true.
Perhaps it should be added to the openoffice.org wrapper scripts.
