Description Leon Ho 2006-09-07 00:34:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Restarting desktop to get SCIM changes is a hassle, when user only want to get
the new input method immediately. Would be better to get it "programatically"
works, or at least document an easy way for users.
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2006-10-18 03:43:03 EDT
I realised that scim-restart does not affect scim-bridge.
Adding "killall scim-bridge" to it should help for the time being.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2006-11-03 03:49:12 EST
adding fix first to rawhide in next build
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2006-12-10 23:11:47 EST
Fix to restart xim also going into 1.4.4-36.fc6.
