Description Mayank Jain 2006-08-01 07:14:08 UTC
Description of problem:
When doing "su -" to another user, env var GTK_IM_MODULE is not set

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
scim-1.4.4-25.fc6

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login with "A" user & do "echo $GTK_IM_MODULE"
2. open another gnome-terminal & do "su - B"
3. in B's terminal, again do "echo $GTK_IM_MODULE"

  
Actual results:
B's terminal has GTK_IM_MODULE var not set

Expected results:
echo $GTK_IM_MODULE should result in scim (or an IME)

Additional info:
None

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2006-08-01 08:23:02 UTC
"su -" starts a login shell with a fresh environment.
Use "su" if you want to keep the users env.
