Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431810
doesn't stop the processes when IM is disabled on im-chooser
Last modified: 2008-07-08 02:31:02 EDT
Description of problem:
New im-chooser has a capable of being started/stopped IM without restarting the
desktop. however scim's processes are still running even if disabling IM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose SCIM on im-chooser.
2. turn off "Enable input method feature" checkbox.
still running scim processes
should be stopped.
im-chooser is looking at PIDs when XIM_PROGRAM and AUXILIARY_PROGRAM is brought
up. however /usr/bin/scim what currently scim.conf has for XIM_PROGRAM is
bringing up multiple processes and exits after that. so that pid is invalid then.
This is what's happening now. FYI.
Fixed in 1.4.7-111
This change to scim-conf seems to break scim startup for some users.
Probably starting up the XIM socket first may prevent SCIM starting
up correctly sometimes. It might be a bug and/or race condition, and
may depend on the speed of the machine perhaps...
I modified scim.conf to use /usr/bin/scim to start scim related processe.
In the new version scim.conf, scim will not start as a daemon.
im-settings-daemon can close it by sending SIGINT or SIGTERM signal to scim
FIXED in version 1.4.7-12.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
