So what happens right now? If you try to activate SCIM it doesn't work?

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-14 15:46:16 UTC
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.

Thank you in advance.

The SCIM cannot be actived after the screen being locked. So if trying to input
some "leave messages", you only can input english I think. 

But it's just a "be blessed with a double portion of good fortune" I think. So, if  
this can be implemented, it will be good. If cannot, it's not bad.

Comment 4 Ricky Ng-Adam 2008-01-02 20:40:37 UTC
Still a problem for gnome-screensaver-2.20.0-10.fc8: only English input is

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-02-27 22:24:03 UTC
Not an easy fix, I fear. Most likely the problem is that scim's window doesn't
get raised over the screensaver window. Fixing this may need changes to the
screensaver extension.

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2008-02-28 01:26:48 UTC
Hmm I tested with uim and that works fine.
So looks like this is a scim issue.

Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-02-28 04:05:40 UTC
note we don't use the screensaver extension...

Comment 8 Peng Huang 2008-02-28 04:17:39 UTC
It seems that gtk_im_context doesn't receive key events from the GtkTextView. I
don't know what's the different between screensaver and normal gtk applications.

Patch from Wu Peng.

hi, here is a patch from Wu Peng. phuang, can you help me to verify and test
it? Thanks.

Comment 10 Peng Wu 2008-02-29 05:32:17 UTC
Please set environment variable:
export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim

Comment 11 Peng Huang 2008-02-29 06:06:29 UTC
I just tested the patch with scim-bridge & scim im module. It can not fix this
I checked the code of im-scim im module. It seems that gnome-screensaver does
not set right focused widget to im context.
