Debian Multimedia :: Scim/skim Doesn't Show Other Languages Than English?

Jul 28, 2010

I use Lenny 2.6.26-1-686 and kde 3.5.10I installed scim/skim and a great load of related packages and some fonts. I changed a lot of configuration files, so many times that I'm at a loss about them right now. Skim is starting with kde, and an icon is showing at the lower right corner. If I press Alt+F2 to run another app though, this icon disappears. I configured skim at the meny "Main Toolbar Configuration" to "always show" [3]. So I can still configure it from this Toolbar that is always at the desktop. But I can't really use the programme.

Well, I'm trying to type romanized Pali fonts (Pali is the language of Buddhist scriptures).When I run openoffice, for instance, and try to select the "input method" there's only English/European; Raw Code; and Keyboard for alternatives.I created the file "/usr/share/m17n/sa-translit.mim" with a map for transliteration of the special characters. I learned how to do this here:The first thing I noted is that when I pasted the content of the file to the terminal, some characters appeared as "blank squares". So I guess my system can't find any fonts installed to print these characters. But I thought I had installed the fonts that supported them (Gentium, Dejavu Sans and others). I must be missing something.

At the K-Menu, if I go to "Settings" -> "SCIM Imput Method Setup" it doesn't work any more. No window opens. At first, when I was starting to try to make it work, I could open this setup window and the "sa-translit.mim" file was there under the "Other" category (but it didn't really work, I don't know why). Now this setup doesn't run anymore, and at the "Configure" window for Skim I have only "English/European" and "Raw Code" at "Global Setup"-> "Other".But I have many things at /usr/share/m17n/ which should be showing here, I guess.

My /etc/scim/global
SupportedUnicodeLocales = en_GB.utf8
/DefaultPanelProgram = /usr/bin/scim-panel-kde

Software :: Scim/Skim Not Working With Kate?

Jul 17, 2010

I'm trying to teach myself Japanese.So, naturally, I signed up at a Japanese social website for language practice. Now, all I need is to be able to type in Japanese. I followed the instructions at this site, and everything seems to work. Everything, that is, except kate. Every other app works fine (even the terminal). But when I press enter to confirm my choice of hiragana/katakana/kanji in kate, the characters just vanish as though they were never there

Debian :: Doesn't Support Flash On The Web - Simultaneously Work With Two Or Three Different Languages?

Dec 10, 2010

I have worked with it for some weeks when I installed it over the summer on my PowerPC. I am now trying to decide whether Debian (vs. Ubuntu) is the right OS for my brand new Toshiba Intel Core i3 with 3 GB of RAM.

1. Flash -- it is true that Debian doesn't support flash on the web? It certianly did not support flash on my PowerPC. I would appreciate if someone can give me a straight answer on this.

2. Languages -- can I simultaneously work with two or three different languages on Debian? I frequently have to type in several languages (e.g., English, French, Persian, Turkish). I am writing a dissertation, so this is very important to me.

3. Finally where can I read a little about comparison between Debian and Ubuntu? My understanding is that Debian is faster than Ubuntu and generally better. Ubuntu is after all based on Debian which means that it's secondary in stability, features, speed, etc. to Debian. Is this generalization correct? Or am I completely off the wall?

Debian Configuration :: Switch Between English And Japanese Input While Keeping An English Interface

Sep 23, 2010

I am learning japanese and I would like to be able to switch between english and japanese input while keeping an english interface. How would I achieve that? I am using KDE, by the way.

In the Kiten documentation I read that pressing Shift+Space would enable japanese input (built-in in Kiten, according to the documentation). But that does not seem to work in my system.

Debian Multimedia :: Could Not Configure Installing Custom Languages

Feb 27, 2011

My Debian installation was originally only in Croatian, and I was fine with that until now. Being irritated by some javascripts (especially those that won't let me close a tab in Iceweasel) I installed noscript. However, I could not configure it (the configuration was "translated" in Croatian rendering it useless). So I did# dpkg-reconfigure localesand added English (en_US) besides Croatian (hr_HR)....

Ubuntu :: SCIM Stopped Working, But Ibus Doesn't Work Either?

Mar 6, 2010

upgrading to9.10 I suddenly was unable use SCIM to switch language input methods.After searching around, I discovered that with Ubuntu 9.10 Ibus was being used in place of SCIM. That's all fine and good, but I can't get Ibus to work. Specifically, when I open the Ibus settings pane and add my desired languages, the settings aren't saved when I exit.So I tried switching back to SCIM. I changed my bashrc settings and set the keyboard input in language settings back to SCIM. No nice.Honestly, I just want to be able to swich language input methods--I don't care if I use SCIM or Ibus.

Debian :: Unrecognized Partition - Doesn't Show The Right Name

Aug 7, 2010

I reinstalled Debian today, and changed partition tables. Now I have 4 partitions, 3 of which are encrypted, including / (root). Everything was fine at first, but now, instead of the partition label I've chosen, I see this: 120 GB Unrecognized Everything works fine, I just don't understand what this is all about.

EDIT 1:I don't understand something else too, which might be related. First time, I didn't need to enter root password for things like Synaptic and so, is this somehow related? (Now I'm being asked for, like normal way)

EDIT 2: I know the label is ROOT, I used e2label. But it still doesn't show the right name...

After installing proprietary graphics drivers for AMD A-50 APU graphics performance has been greatly increased. But two new problems have come up.

1. While playing video files clicking menus doesn't show anything, the video forcibly overrides the menus.
2. Videos always take the focus over other windows and applications.

For example, see the attached screenshot where actually terminal should come to the focus, but the video is overriding it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio Mp3 Players Doesn't Show Errors At All Just Skips The Songs?

Jun 10, 2010

I have very strange problems with all the good audio mp3 players in Ubuntu. Not the bad programs only the good (whcich have good skins and library and so on). Amarok for some reason skips all the music files but only mp3 if I put m3u online radio it works. It doesn't show errors at all just skips the songs. I've never had issues with mp3 files before. The movie player works liek a charm but is too cheap (no library to browse files). Banshee was great and suddenly it stopped working just like the good old Rhythmbox... They appear to be starting in background but don't show nowhere. I cannot install XMMS players too it isn't found on the apt-get server. Also my packages are fully updated.

Reinstalling the programs don't help at all! It must be some major issue with the programs not launching. It's not a single program Banshee, Rhythmbox and I think some other but don't remember the names. Movie player plays all but is too simple. I want something like Winamp with nice library please help. No need for movies just mp3. Exaile works not fine with mp3 but I preffer how Rhytmhbox shows the music library with all the songs not like in seperate folders. I could try song shuffle. But why the other programs don't start what command can show what's happening?

Debian Configuration :: NetworkManager Doesn't Show (working) Internet Connection / Sort It?

May 14, 2010

I have no idea how I managed this, but I am able to connect to the internet but NetworkManager doesn't show any connection. This means that until I kill it, I cannot log in with Pidgin, because it is waiting for a connection.

Do I disable NetworkManager completely or do I try to make it recognize that I am connected to the Internet? If the latter, then how should I go about? (Please let me know which files I need to show you, because I know I've messed around with a couple).

Debian :: How To Add Languages

May 5, 2011

I installed "squeeze" in English. I would like to add, at minimum, another language.I read through the various Debian manuals, but could find no reference to adding a language.I have googled for an answer for over one and a half hours. There were numerous inputs, but none, that I could find, gave me the answer.I searched for an answer in this forum in "Beginners' and in "General".All kinds of answers here but again, I came away without knowing how to add a language.I am coming off Ubuntu, which contained a simple method to add a language, so I have been spoiled pretty badly, I think.

Debian :: Scim Stopped Working In LibreOffice-writer

Sep 8, 2015

I use scim to input Chinese in Libreoffice-writer. It worked on one of my computers until a couple of days ago.

Normally to start scim I press Ctrl and the space bar at the same time. Then I use the input method Cangjie to input Chinese.

Now when I do so in Libreoffice-writer "English/European" appears in the scim panel. The other choice is "English/Keyboard". The choice of either doesn't enable me to input Chinese.

In all other software scim works as before.

The computer runs Debian sid. On another computer that runs Debian sid too I don't have the same problem. I have version 5 of Libreoffice on both computers.

Debian :: Installed Scim With The Package Manager, But Cannot Start It?

May 8, 2011

I have just switched from Ubuntu to Debian, so on the whole I can easily figure out how to use Debian. Scim however, is giving me a problem. I have installed scim with the package manager, but cannot start it.With Ubuntu is was ctrl+space bar, but so far I have not found any key combinations that work. In the preferences menu there is an entry for scim set-up, but it is only an information page.AlthoughI have been using Linux for a few years, I am not much of a terminal user, so I have not even thought of going that route for fear of wrecking my new system.Considering how easy it was to use scim on Ubuntu, which is a Debian derivative, it should not be difficult to get it working. (I am not a computer wizard. In fact, before switching to Linux I hated the machines.

Debian :: Synaptic/update Manager Causes Duplicate Scim Processes?

Jan 18, 2011

[rant]Ok, I've been ignoring this for a couple of months, but now it's gotten to me and I want to know what's causing it.[/rant] Here's my problem. I have scim 1.4-9 (latest) installed for Japanese input. It works fine. I have no problems with it. However, when I launch Synaptic or update manager a duplicate instance of scim starts.This is on Debian Squeeze. See below:

Fresh reboot:


scim-bridge 34.2MIB
scim-helper-manager 32.7MIB
scim-launcher x2 47.8MIB, 165.4MIB
scim-panel-gtk 153.2MIB

After launching Synaptic or Update manager:

B signifies before as above


B scim-bridge 34.2MIB
scim-bridge 34.2MIB
B scim-helper-manager 32.7MIB
scim-helper-manager 32.8MIB


It's not a huge deal, because when I close said programs, the duplicate process stop. I just find it odd because these are the only two programs that seem to cause it. Oh, and I'm using Gnome, if that matters.

Debian Configuration :: Specify Different Languages For Different Users

Sep 27, 2015

I have Debian 8 installed, using:
* gdm3 as the default display manager (set up in "/etc/X11/default-display-manager");
* LXDE as the default desktop environment.

I did "dpkg-reconfigure locales" and I selected three languages: "en_US.UTF-8", "it_IT.UTF-8", "sv_SE.UTF-8" (the predefined one is "it_IT.UTF-8").Now I wish to create two more users each with a different language (both for X and console applications).I did a lot of googling without success; I tried modifying ~/.profile or ~/.dmrc (adding "export LANG=...") but they didn't work. I was able to change only the system-wide language, not the one of a single user.I got the conclusion that It's not possible to have multiple users each with a different language. Is it true?

I made another try.In another installation (Debian 8, with GNOME and LXDE) I created two users:antonio, ida.The former has only one hidden file in its home-dir: ".bashrc" with "LANG=it_IT.UTF-8" as the last line (no "export $LANG" added).The latter ("ida") has only two hidden files in its home-dir:

1. ".bashrc" clean, with no "LANG=it_IT.UTF-8" line
2. ".dmrc" containing two lines:

Language=sv_SE.utf8.I put "/usr/sbin/gdm3" in "/etc/X11/default-display-manager".After reboot both users are OK: each of them displays its own language: antonio has all menus and programs in italian ida has all menus and programs in swedish.

I was able to create 4 users with 4 languages (SE, IT, FR, ES). Then I deleted all directory and files (including "~/.bashrc" and "~/.dmrc") of one user, rebooted the PC, and NOTHING changed! So, where is stored the user's language?Not in his home; there is a list elsewere?

0. Use "lightdm" (not "gdm3") as the display manager (see "/etc/X11/default-display-manager")
To install it: su -c "apt-get install lightdm"
1. su -c "dpkg-reconfigure locales"
(select the desired locales: en_US.UTF-8, it_IT.UTF-8, sv_SE.UTF-8, etc; set "default locale for the system environment=None")
2. su -c "adduser emil" ("emil" is the name of a swedish user)
3. Logout
4. Select "Swedish" as default language (see at the top-right corner of the screen)
5. Write user name (emil) and password to login
6. After login, language is english (but file "~/.dmrc" is created with the correct language).
7. Reboot PC.
8. After reboot, login again as "emil": now language is Swedish

Now you can change the display manager to gdm3 if you prefer.To change applications language: su -c "apt-get install task-swedish task-swedish-desktop"

I found the file containing the user's language: it's the same containing the link to its icon:/var/lib/AccountsService/users/UserName.(needs "apt-get install accountsservice"). Editing that file is much simpler as I described earlier

Ubuntu :: SKIM Unable To Start

Oct 10, 2010

I am having trouble starting SKIM in KUbuntu 10.10 and thus unable to type Chiense characters.

I have followed the instructions listed here [url]

But when I try to start SKIM through K Menu -> Utilities -> SKIM, it fails. I have no idea how to proceed from here.

I've also read this thread [url] and I'm stuck again at the part 'start SKIM'.

I can start SCIM (K Menu -> Settings -> SCIM), but it doesn't seem to have any effect when I invoke the trigger.

And so does the iBus Keyboard Input Methods application (K Menu -> Settings -> Key Board Input Methods) that I am able to start but have no effect too.

Under Settings, there is also another application called Input Method Switcher (K Menu -> Settings -> Input Method Switcher) which fail to start too.

So what can I do to be able to type in Chinese under KUbuntu? I remember setting it up in Ubuntu 9.04 is really easy.
