Description Don Johnson 2007-11-28 08:28:25 EST
Description of problem:
scim does not load when system language is en_US. The user cannot access the
scim keyboard icon on the Gnome panel bar at the top. Consequently, the user
cannot do input in other languages; only tested for Japanese (scim-anthy) with
Gnome desktop. The reason that scim does load is because the file:
is never sourced on line 36 of file:
If the the token "en" is added to the hardcoded string on line 33 of this same
file, scim loads every time "X" is started. See line 33 of attached file. I am
not sure if this is the best way to fix the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Smart Common Input Method platform 1.4.5

Nevermind this intentional.

You can turn on SCIM for en with im-chooser,
but you need to override with Custom -> SCIM.
