Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 199929
Cannot trigger input method within rhythmbox
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
Description of problem:
When enter a search filter, the key strokes to enable SCIM is ctrl-space. But
when space bar is hit, rhythmbox pause/cont. playing.
SCIM could also be triggered by ctrl-shift, though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open rhythmbox in normal mode
2. set focus to search dialog and press ctrl-space to enable SCIM
SCIM is enabled and we can input some search filter.
That should be fairly straight-forward to fix, but would need to be done
upstream. What's an easy way to test this for people who don't have SCIM
I don't know how to test without SCIM or any other input method that use
"ctrl-space" trigger keys. I don't expect a fix. :(

That's not the question. How do we setup SCIM if it's not already installed?

Thanks. SCIM is in extras for fc4, and in core for fc5/6. so just run
yum install scim scim-pinyin im-chooser
Run "im-chooser" after finished. Choose default input method to be SCIM, then
SCIM will take effect in the next login.
I'll let upstream decide as to the best course of action:
