[zh_CN] Gedit inputing fullstop (" ã") only in two keyboard layouts, showing en_US type (".") in other layouts.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
In zh_CN locale, gedit is showing fullstop (after switch on SCIM) as circle ("
ã")) in only Wubi and another keyboard layouts. For others, it is inputing as
en_US locale fullstop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gedit with zh_CN locale.
2. Switch on SCIM with pressing CTRL+SPACE.
3. select any layouts (except Wubi and the last one) in zh_CN (Chinese Simplified)
4. Press fullstop (".")from the keyboard.
5. Observe the result.
Fullstop in zh_CN is showing like en_US fullstop type (".").
It should be looking like circle (" ã").
Only in "Wubi" and the last one layout is showing properly the fullstop.
I think this is notabug. Full-width punctation can be toggled
in for scim toolbar for scim-pinyin and scim-tables.
With scim-1.4.4-21 and later only Wubi and Smart Pinyin appear by default
in the scim submenu for Simplified Chinese and I can enter wide punctuation
fine with both of them. Your report is related to the other scim-tables-chinese
tables? Please the input methods explicitly.
I tested it with latest rpms available in rawhide. The problem remains same and
still existing. Actually in this case what you will do, thats upto you as I do
not know much about chinese inputs and charecter's behaviors. If you think it is
enough to implement it only in 2 layouts its ok for me.
Another thing is that in your previous comment would you like to tell that I
should file a bug against scim-tables-chinese? or what. I did not understand.
Please explain a bit. Did not understand your last sentence also - "Please the
input methods explicitly.". What did you mean to say? please explain.
In the versions tested :
This works for me for all Simplified Chinese tables.
This all use wide punctuation by default AFAICT (as does scim-pinyin
as you already noted).
