Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241629
[en_US] Unable to trigger input method using ctrl+space
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
When I left-click the scim panel applet, nothing appears. I can't configure it
nor select the input method. The SCIM Input Method Setup: FrontEnd: Global Setup
screen looks wrong. The hotkeys are not listed, and I suspect that could be the
problem why it didn't work for me in the first place.
When I try to run a scim-aware app, i.e. pidgin, 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.
In im-chooser, I also selected "Use custom input method: scim", and have also
restarted my desktop.
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.
[eteo@kerndev ~]$ locale
I have also attached a screenshot of the SCIM Input Method Setup.

fixing first in scim-1.4.6-2.fc8
I tagged scim-1_4_5-19_fc7 in cvs, but unable to build currently in koji.
Improved patch is in scim-1.4.6-3.fc8.
Package has been submitted to the Updates system.
scim-1.4.5-20.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
This should be fixed by scim-0:1.4.5-21.fc7, but it is probably
necessary to remove "~/.scim/config" for the fix to take effect.
