OpenSUSE :: Run IBUS Input Method On 11.2?

Jan 16, 2010

I just heard about the newly developed input method IBUS (ibus - Project Hosting on Google Code) the other day. Supposedly, it fixes a number of problems of SCIM (which, unfortunately, is pretty much dead upstream), and both Ubuntu and Fedora are moving toward making IBUS the standard input on their systems.

Interestingly, there's nothing on the openSUSE forums yet, so this thread is supposed to fill the void and become, eventually, a how-to guide for running IBUS on openSUSE 11.2. I've tried to get IBUS running the past few days, but without succcess so far. Perhaps some of you how got it up and running already can help me out?

[Code]...

The IBUS website also mentions the repository Index of /repositories/home:/swyear for openSUSE, but as far as I can see, the IBUS files don't exist there anymore.

OpenSUSE :: Language Input Method Setup In 11.4?

Mar 11, 2011

I just switched back from Mint 10, and while setting to work different input method apps like SCIM and Ibus, bumped into a problem(welcome back to SUSE). After installing Scim, my chinese input works only on one application (Goldendict), it doesn't work in any other app. So I tried Ibus, same result. SO far nothing helped me to make them work. What I 'm trying to find out. Is where I can setup language input method in SUSE, I haven't found such an option anywhere in KDE, yast. WHile in Mint there is such an option, where you can change your inpud method either to scim, xim, scim-bridge or ibus. I tried qtconfig, there I found it, P.S. Warning rage words!: I feel like I should say it. But my previous SUSE experience and overall usage history proves that there is no better distro than Ubuntu nowadays, this is sad indeed, cause I used to start from SUSE. But its true, SUSE is a real pain in the ***, when it comes to getting things done. It seems like whenever u try to setup something there is always a bad feeling of failure. Don't know, but again I'm been consecutively annoyed but its numbness. I'm sorry, cause I feel like I disregard ppl's hard work and support.

Debian :: CJK Input Via Ibus Does Not Work

Nov 13, 2015

I am running Debian 8.2 (Jessie) with KDE 4.14.2. I use ibus to enter CJK characters. ibus is setup "the manual way" from URL....

Code: Select allexport GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus
export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus

CJK input via ibus works for Qt4 applications such as Kate and Kwrite.However, CJK input via ibus does not work automatically with Qt5 applications, such as sqlitebrowser. I can get ibus running with Qt5 applications if I launch the application from the console like this:

Code: Select allQT_IM_MODULE=ibus sqlitebrowser

Is there way I can get ibus working with Qt5 applications automically without needing to add "QT_IM_MODULE=ibus" all the time?

Ubuntu :: Japanese Input (Anthy) With IBus

Mar 4, 2011

For years I have been using scim-anthy for Japanese input under Linux. However just moving to ubuntu 10.10 I noticed that the development for scim has ceased and lots of people recommend moving to ibus. So I tried: I got ibus and ibus-anthy installed. I choose ibus as keyboard method input system under System->Adminsitration->Language Support ibus is up and running. I can see the icon. In ibus opreferences I added anthy under Input methods. I restarted X resp. the whole computer. I can choose Japanese-Anthy when clicking on the ibus icon. But nothing happens. I am still writing latin characters, no anthy popped up (like it used with scim), nothing.

Ubuntu :: IBus - No Input Window In Gnome 3

May 16, 2011

I recently installed gnome 3, using the ppa -> dist-upgrade -> install gnome-shell method. IBus used to work fine with gnome 2.3 and unity, but in gnome 3, the icon is still there, the deamon is still running (I presume) but no matter where i click, it always shows 'no input window'... (for example, i can't type anything other than English here...).

Ubuntu :: Get IBus Input Methods To Work In Adobe Flash Player?

May 2, 2011

how to get IBus input methods to work in Adobe Flash Player? I want to type foreign characters in SharedTalk, a language exchange website which unfortunately runs entirely on Flash, but pressing ctrl-space to activate IBus does nothing and I can only type in Latin characters.

Or if it's possible by using something other than ibus, I'd also be interested.

I did a search but I can only find threads like [URL]this which refer to older Flash versions and claim that it's fixed now.

Debian :: Dynamic Input Method For German?

Nov 16, 2010

i'm running Debian "lenny" x86 on KDE. Back in Windows, I was able to switch between keyboard input languages by pressing certain hotkeys on my English keyboard. For instance if I switched to German, the semicolon button would become I think a umlaut or o umlaut. Is there any close equivalent in Debian? I know of 'dpkg-reconfigure console-data', however even if it did work (which in my case it didn't), it would be a hassle to type in commands at the terminal to switch between keyboard input languages, compared to just pressing hotkeys.

Ubuntu :: Set System Default Input Method?

Apr 15, 2011

I am wondering how i could set the system default Input Method of my choice. I have install extra language support (Chinese) and SCIM package (Chinese packages included)

All went well when i test it in Leafpad. The only thing I found it troublesome is that I need choose the input method manually every time. SCIM is already running at start up.

I have tried to set it via Language support without joy.... the System IME still showing X input method..

Slackware :: Emacs Can't Use Fcitx Input Method?

May 10, 2011

i'm a Chinese student, after I upgraded slackware13.1 to slakcware13.37, I find that I can't use the fcitx input method in emacs to type Chinese. One method is to comment parts of the font path in /etc/X11/xorg.conf-vesa file. I can use fcitx input method in the first emacs that I opened and then when I open a new emacs, I can't use fcitx input method and it indicates that the Ctrl+Space key combination is the Mark command. What's wrong with this problem?

General :: Removing SCIM Input Method As Default From Gnome Terminal?

Feb 16, 2010

While I can find my way around most things, terminals and desktop managers are different than I remember. One of the biggest problems that I am encountering today is that when running a gnome terminal (this is Suse 10.0 enterprise), I'm getting behavior in the window that I don't want. Specifically, when I type, my typing is underlined as if something is trying to spell check my window. Further, it seems as if when running vi or less, my keystrokes are only processed by these apps when I hit 'return'. I.e. if I'm running less and want to go back a page, I'll hit b, but nothing happens until I hit 'return'.

I seem to have tracked this down to the 'input method". Right clicking in the Gnome terminal allows me to set my input method to one of a dozen values. It seems that currently, it's set to "SCIM Input Method". If I then select 'default' or 'X Input Method', apps (i.e. things like less, vi, and even the bash shell) behave as I would expect.

a) what is this SCIM input method

b) how can I make it so that it is not the default?

I've poked around various configuration files in my home directory as well as in /etc, but I can't see to find how this is set.

General :: Define A Keyboard Layout / Input Method For Ubuntu In Python?

Jun 20, 2010

defining keyboard layouts in linux (ubuntu 10.04 here). there does not seem to be any easy, graphical way to define keyboard mappings (except for keyboardlayouteditor, but frankly, i do not understand the installation description.i am using an apple aluminum keyboard with a german layout, but no matter what i do the (<>) and (^░) keys are always swapped (i did manage to change the default behavior for the f1...f12 keys from multimedia back to 'ordinary', application-centric... all you have to do is add the line echo 2 > /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode to /etc/rc.local... this is so bloody obvious i am ashamed i had to search the web for this!).

adding to my distress, i find the chinese IMEs a horror (not a single one of the many i tried does anywhere come near google pinyin for windows), and have gotten neither ibus nor scime to work in a satisfactory way for me. i find linux keyboard handling a morass. i know this must be one of the hardest problems in computer science, since this subject gets so convoluted no matter whether its on windows or in-the-browser javascript. as a linguist i am well aware of the inherent complications proper text handling poses, but looking at descriptions how to configure xkb makes building interstellar spaceships look like a cakewalk.

find a place in the system where keystrokes are recorded;read out those codes (could be scan codes or character codes) using a daemon (implemented in python; i heard you have to listen to IOCTL or somesuch); when certain code combinations appear, switch them to do what you want;applications now get to see a X where formerly the got to see a U and vice versa;profit!

Is there a place, in ubuntu / linux systems that does allow reading out keyboard codes? Is there a way to block processing of such keyboard actions until an intercepting daemon has processed them? Would such an interceptor work for a broad range of use cases? like on the command line, in a gtk app, in wine, in firefox and so on? An alternative would actually be to grok keyboardlayouteditor, so if someone could post about a readable, complete installation instruction or point out installable packages, that'd be great, too.

OpenSUSE Install :: Method To Migrate 11.3 System To 11.4

Jun 17, 2011

I am currently considering migrating an openSUSE X86-64 system from 11.3 to 11.4. There seem to be 2 possibilities, upgrade or reinstall. Opinion seems to be divided on the process of upgrading from the DVD.I have not been able to find any reasonable guide to using either method to migrate an 11.3 system to 11.4 and have the 11.4 system in the same working state as the 11.3 system was. What I have found for the reinstall method is trivial. for the upgrade method I have seen a reference to running rcrpmconfigcheck but I have been unable to find a man page for it on my 11.3 system or via google.

Does such a guide exist? It should be created by the openSUSE project for each release.If it works the upgrade process looks to be the best method. The last 2 migrations were via the install method. 10 to 11 but also 32 to 64 bit and then 11.1 to 11.3 onto a new machine before moving the data across. Both rebuilds took many days.I have seen many posts saying that it is very quick to rebuild the system. As little as 2 hours has been quoted. I have not yet seen an explanation of how they do it. I suspect that they rebuild systems regularly and have it all scripted or their systems are very simple. An explanation of how it is done would be interesting.Given that I do migrations once or twice a year, building and testing a script to do the migration is probably not worth the effort especially as the only test machine is very old and slow

OpenSUSE :: Archive Method That Preserves The Same Information As Rsync -a?

May 11, 2011

Right now I use "rsync -a" to sync my zimbra directory with another directory as a backup. I'd like to archive that backup (zip....rar....etc etc) in such a way that it preserves the same information as rsync -a would (symlinks, permissions.... Etc etc). Does anyone know of such an archive method? My goal is to have it so that if I uncompress the file, the result should match exactly what my zimbra was at the time of backup.
