I've heard from jko that the machine that he used is the same as you used. so it
looked like this issue may be caused by the installation failure of scim.
probably it needs to be correct first. I mean you need to remove the duplicated
scim-libs. see Bug#195633. if you see the scriptlet failed at removing, try it
with --noscripts then.

Could you please try again with a fresh install of fc6test1 or later rawhide?

Reopening this bug as this bug found once again in scim during testing with FC8
Released Version (did not test with rawhide so far). And this is a regression
test case, thatswhy reopening this bug.

IN FC8 Released version scim is behaving strangely for Indic Locale with gtk and
openoffice packages. Its not activating with Ctrl+Space button press. And more
with that, the IME "RAWCODE" not showing in scim global setup menu.

Hi Huang
The file you wanted ($HOME/.xinputrc), in the bug #421171, could not be found
there in my test system where I tested this bug. Is it that the file must be
there, or it may not be present also? pls inform. Any other way to get this
file? Pls inform.

Did you install scim-lang-hindi, scim-lang-assamese, and etc?
Please send `rpm -qa scim\*` output to me.
