Description Jong Bae KO 2006-06-15 04:20:17 EDT
Description of problem:
It seems that the version currently in updates-testing (scim-1.4.4-9.3.fc5) does
not allow activating scim inputs on anything other than pre-defined CJK locales
(e.g. zh_CN.UTF-8). I have not been successful in triggering the layout under
en_CA.UTF-8, even though it worked before the update, and I have the necessary
symlink in ~/.xinput.d/default->/etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim (also tried
creating ~/.xinput.d/en_CA with no results).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure scim under en_US or en_CA locales (e.g. by running im-switch -s scim).
2. Try to switch to any SCIM locale by either key combos, or by left-clicking on
the notification area applet. SCIM shows no signs of life.
3. This only works if an application is started in, say, zh_CN.UTF-8 locale --
then SCIM works as expected.

Additional info:
I have reproduced this problem on 2 different machines, plus at least one other
person is seeing the same behaviour

Hmm strange, works ok for me.  And you have xorg-x11-xinit-1.0.1-2, right?

Do you see any yum upgrade log errors.  I found a %post error:
it seems the scim libraries and gtimm module were not linked against
libstdc++so7 even though they were compiled with it.

Unfortunately this time I mainly just tested upgrading the main package not
scim-libs since the only change packaging change was scim obsoleting
scim-qtimm, and worse the package was just pushed to final. :-(

Ok, thanks for the report: I think this is because I forgot to
update the libtool tweaking for libstdc++so7 for gcc-4.1.1,
which broken libtool linking of the .so files unfortunately.
