Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241626
Unable to click scim panel applet nor select input method using ctrl+space
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
When I click the scim panel applet, nothing appears. I can't configure it nor
select the input method.
When I try to run a scim-aware app, i.e. pidgin, pressing ctrl+space has no
effect. Not even when I run "GTK_IM_MODULE=scim-bridge gedit".
This is a fresh rawhide install since this morning. I did not do any
configurations on scim, except to run it automatically using gnome-sessions when
I start logging in. I compared the list of rpms with cchance, and we have got
matching rpm versions. It worked previously, with an earlier version of rawhide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[eteo@kerndev ~]$ rpm -qa | grep scim
[eteo@kerndev ~]$ rpm -qa | grep fonts
Fresh rawhide install as of May 29, 2007 (GMT+8)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the scim panel applet (keyboard icon), but nothing appears
1. Run "GTK_IM_MODULE=scim-bridge gedit", but nothing appears when I press
I should be able to see a menu when I click the scim panel applet or see a list
of input methods to choose when I press ctrl+space.
For a non-Asian desktop you need to activate scim with im-chooser.
It's in the release notes, but all rather confusing. :-/
