scim-pinyin needs default input mode configuration
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
In other to turn on scim by default and for shared input mode,
scim-pinyin needs to provide an initial input mode configuration
mode (like scim-anthy and scim-hangul currently do) to allow users
to choose whether they start in ascii or conversion mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Does this feature needed?
(1) It's very easy to switch to English mode by clicking 'Shift' key. Or just
click 'Ctrl+Space' to swich the English IM directly.
(2) Chinese users just use scim-pinyin to type Chinese words. Why it's need to
type English by default?
(3) The popular Chinese pinyin input methods, like Ziguang or Sogou, have not
such a feature. As a Chinese, I never heard someone need such a feature. Just
because scim-anthy and scim-hangul have this feature?
