Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2007-07-09 07:21:01 EDT
Can you try 2 things:
1.  Does it launch ok in kde?
2.  rpm -q qt kdelibs
Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-07-09 07:37:25 EDT

1. I don't have KDE installed (kdelibs is installed, but kdebase
   is not installed...)
   What is needed? kdebase & kde-i18n-Japanese?
2. qt-3.3.8-4.fc7
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-07-09 07:48:16 EDT
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
Comment 4 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-07-09 08:13:27 EDT
Well, now I have kdebase, kde-i18n-Japanese installed,
session KDE starts properly.

However even on KDE kaffeine doesn't seem to launch.
Comment 5 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-07-09 08:49:22 EDT
Same on rawhide, on GNOME and KDE.
Comment 6 Mary Ellen Foster 2007-09-07 11:01:40 EDT
It appears that it may be a problem with SCIM rather than with LANG settings
directly ...

I don't know how to test it, though.
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2007-09-07 11:19:55 EDT
Let's see if the scim folks have any comment... ? :)
Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2007-09-10 00:20:51 EDT
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.)
Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2007-09-10 00:23:04 EDT
(I should have mentioned the preceding comment is based on testing
under GNOME btw.)
Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2007-09-10 01:43:47 EDT
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.)
Comment 11 Mamoru TASAKA 2008-01-15 10:23:01 EST
On rawhide it seems okay. For F-8 I will try on next logout...
I can no longer try F-7...
Comment 12 Caius Chance 2008-03-05 20:09:16 EST
My fresh installed F8 is able to start. Could we close this bug?
