[PATCH] [si_LK] Firefox lacks of surrounding text support
Last modified: 2018-04-11 07:36:27 EDT
Description of problem:
when try to input for Sinhala Language, then failed to render properly
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open firefox
2. goto Address bar (any text input area)
3. for input,
please install scim-sinhala (from rawhide) and press following keys
Ctrl+Space to activative and Deactivate Input method
rendering is broken
Rendering should like Gedit
test same input for gedit (à¶à·âà¶»à·)
Font package: font-sinhala
Adding si_LK Language Expert for More deep information
Changing component to firefox, reassigning.
Probably it's the same problem as OOo, so need to implement retrieve_surrounding
signal and delete_surrouding in the IMM, i.e. copying and pasting the text from
gedit works, so it's able to render the final text, but it's not able to give
feedback to the scim module about what text should be generated in relation to
the existing context.
I'll look into this issue.

Attached patch is enabling the surrounding text signals on GTK+ that
scim-sinhala requires to get it work.
Please file an upstream bug at bugzilla.mozilla.org.
Given the "must be upstream first" policy for mozilla patches, these bugs can't
Akira, can you file an upstream bug ?

its working on RHEL 5.1

We just updated the Firefox version in Fedora/development from 2.0 to a 3.0
pre-release version, which improves performance, memory usage, and fixes many
bugs and crashes.
Closing as CANTFIX since we aren't fixing bugs filed against 2.0 now that 3.0 is
in. If this bug is still present in rawhide using a Firefox 3.0 version, please
re-open this bug.
Thanks and Happy Holidays
