Description of problem:
* I am using GNOME environment
* My locale is ja_JP.UTF-8 if it is needed
Trying to launch kaffeine from normal user does not
Launching kaffeine from root succeeds.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to GNOME as normal user
2. launch gnome-terminal
3. type "kaffeine"
kaffeine won't start
kaffeine should start
Several Japanese Fedora 7 users complain about this
on Japanese Fedora BBS and I confirmed this.
Can you try 2 things:
1. Does it launch ok in kde?
2. rpm -q qt kdelibs
1. I don't have KDE installed (kdelibs is installed, but kdebase
is not installed...)
What is needed? kdebase & kde-i18n-Japanese?
1. yeah, kdebase at least, kde-i18n-Japanese is optional.
Hmm, I'm unable to reproduce,
$ env LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 KDE_LANG=ja kaffeine
Well, now I have kdebase, kde-i18n-Japanese installed,
session KDE starts properly.
However even on KDE kaffeine doesn't seem to launch.
Same on rawhide, on GNOME and KDE.
It appears that it may be a problem with SCIM rather than with LANG settings
I don't know how to test it, though.
Let's see if the scim folks have any comment... ? :)
Reproduced under F7 with XIM. I suggest installing scim-qtimm if you need scim
support under qt/kde, otherwise it is probably better to uninstall scim.
The qtimm in scim-qtimm provides much better support than using XIM for KDE apps.
(I can't reproduce this with current rawhide FWIW.)
(I should have mentioned the preceding comment is based on testing
under GNOME btw.)
I tried to test F7 also with scim-1.4.7-2.fc8 from rawhide and still
kaffeine does not start under XIM, so I suggest this may not a scim bug
since it works ok with scim-1.4.7-2.fc8 under F8 testing.
(I couldn't reproduce the problem with kinput2 fwiw.)
On rawhide it seems okay. For F-8 I will try on next logout...
I can no longer try F-7...
My fresh installed F8 is able to start. Could we close this bug?
