Description Eric Yuan Zhao 2002-05-09 14:06:24 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux)

Description of problem:
When miniChinput's input window is triggered, its contents are not printed properly.  Part of them are cut off and the rest are stacked over each other.  This makes it totally unreadable. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Simplified Chinese support (fonts and miniChinput)
2. Set locale to zh_CN
3. Start X
4. Press <ctrl>+<space> to trigger miniChinput's input interface

Actual Results:  The contents on the input window are not readable.  They are partially cut off and stacked over each other.

Expected Results:  The contents should be printed in a readable manner.

Additional info:

I've tried miniChinput on 2 completely different computers both with RH 7.3 installed and got the same result.  I replaced the package with the one shipped in 7.2, and then it worked.

I didn't find this problem, but giving us a screenshot and telling me the
version numbers of miniChinput, ttfonts-zh_CN, XFree86 would help.

# rpm -q ttfonts-zh_CN
# rpm -q miniChinput
# rpm -q XFree86

On my machine it is perfectly ok, I couldn't reproduce your problem.
Comment 5 Yu Shao 2002-05-10 02:58:24 EDT
Do you have the same problem in GNOME?
Comment 6 Yu Shao 2002-05-10 03:14:25 EDT
You should set your locale as zh_CN.GB2312, zh_CN.GBK, or zh_CN.GB18030. 

zh_CN is actually zh_CN.GB2312, next miniChinput update will be able to handle
locale "zh_CN" correctly. Thank you for your report.
