I only saw error output from im-chooser. Which version of im-chooser do you use?
Did you update im-chooser?
I used gui for starting im-chooser. Then it dumped so I tried to execute
/usr/bin/im-chooser there also it dumped. The following is the output.
[root@Studio ~]# /usr/bin/im-chooser
(im-chooser:2993): IMSettings-WARNING **: Failed to invoke a method
Failed to open file '/tmp/scim_conf:xim::0.0-root': No such file or directory
[root@Studio ~]# /usr/bin/im-chooser --version
GNOME im-chooser 0.99.6
Please use `rpm -q im-chooser` to check im-chooser's rpm version. If it is early
than 0.99.6-5, please use `yum update im-chooser` to update it.
I thinks it is im-chooser's problem.
Thanks for the advice. I have updated im-chooser and it works. Now could you
please let me know how to learn the keyboard map for Malayalayam itran input
method. Any pointers would be really appreciated.
better ask on fedora-i18n-list.
