Description Jens Petersen 2007-02-16 02:17:13 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #211266 +++

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Install scim, scim-bridge, scim-m17n-0.2.1-1.fc7 and m17n-db-arabic
1. Setup Swedish keyboard in scim-setup and restart desktop
2. Switch to Swedish keyboard: run "setxkbmap se"
3. Run "GTK_IM_MODULE=scim gedit"
4. Select the input method 'Arabic (Egypt)'
5. Try the keys to the right of 'P' and 'L' keys.
6. repeat from (3) with GTK_IM_MODULE=scim-bridge

Actual results:
It inputs 'å~öä', which are the Swedish letters for those keys.

Expected results:
It should input the arabic letters for 'k' and some others.

Additional info:
The rest of the qwerty-keys seem to work.

[abridged thread from original bug follows:]

Adding patch from upstream in scim-m17n-0.2.1-1.fc7.

Carl, are you able to test that?

I tested it a few days ago.

$ rpm -q scim-m17n

I installed to rpm and logged out and in again. Setting it to arabic still
produces åäö instead of the correct arabic characters. And ^ is still a
dead key.

It should be enough to log out of X right?

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2007-02-16 02:25:16 UTC
Should have read:

Actual results:
5. With im-scim input arabic keys for Swedish keys correctly.
6. With scim-bridge it inputs 'å~öä', the Swedish letters for those keys.

Expected results:
6. It should input the arabic letters for 'k' and some others.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2007-02-23 01:09:53 UTC
Dairiki-san informed that this should be fixed in scim-bridge cvs. :)

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2007-02-23 01:16:32 UTC
Tested cvs snapshot and it looks good to me.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2007-02-26 01:00:46 UTC
Should be fixed in 0.4.10.

I built scim-bridge-0.4.10-1.fc6 for updates testing.

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2007-03-08 04:58:53 UTC
scim-bridge-0.4.10-1.fc6 was pushed to final.
