Description of Problem:
when you select simplified chinese and log in through gdm, you are still
unable to input chinese.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. slect simplifed chinese at gdm login screen
2. log in
3. start up a terminal, hit ctrl-space and no entry window comes up
as it should.
Actual Results:I did a ps auwx | grep chinput
iakka 7406 0.6 0.0 0 0 ? Z 12:37 0:00 [chinput
diakka 7450 0.0 1.2 6460 3308 ? S 12:37 0:00 chinput
pstree shows the following:
also, if i kill the chinput process that is apparently still alive
according to ps, then restart chinput from the command line, all future
windows I bring up, will be able to bring up the chinese entry window when
I press ctrl-space.
If I don't kill chinput before starting a new one, X sort of locks up. no
windows/gnome-panel respond. only the window manager seems to still be
functional at this point.
I expected the chinese input window to pop up when i hit ctrl-space
I'm using a Matrox Millenium (MGA 2064W), which does not use an
XFree86 v4.x X server. On my other machine, an athlon 1.2Mhz with a voodoo
3, chinput seems to work just fine.
Commenting out of the last 4 lines of /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/xinput will fix
the problem. This file belongs to xinitrc-3.20-1.
firstname.lastname@example.org will put a patch through soon.
