Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461339
SCIM stopped working
Last modified: 2008-09-09 23:24:35 EDT
Description of problem:
After a "yum update", the Control-SPACE does not work, and a click
into SCIM icon in the panel does nothing (used to bring up a list
of input methods: Anthy and Russian/Translit are enabled). The
/var/log/yum.log shows that scim-tables and scim-tables-russian
were updated in this update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% on this given system
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in
2. Make sure SCIM icon is visible in the panel
3. Open gnome-terminal
4. Hit Control-Space.
No input method.
Input method window.
Preparing testing environment.
The followings are what I have done to get it works:
0a. After your yum update, reboot the system.
0b. Ensure yum groupinstall chinese-support is done.
1. yum install im-chooser.
2. Alt-F2 > gnome-terminal > im-chooser.
3. Enable SCIM > logout.
4. Reboot the system.
5. Login to Gnome and the SCIM should be working.
How about if fresh installation of latest (most recent bootable) rawhide?
Could you try:
-`yum install im-chooser`
- Enable SCIM
if that works?
BTW, which locale are you using?
Please also kindly provide `imsettings-info` output, thanks a lot.

This problem was resolved without an update to SCIM. It was a problem
in GNOME. Many applications behave in a weird way, apparently.
