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?

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?


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.

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.

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.

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..

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.

Slackware :: Strange 13.37 Regression With Emacs?

May 22, 2011

I've a strange regression with Slackware 13.37 and Emacs. In Slackware 13.1 (and all previous versions since I started with Slackware 11), Emacs in X-windows looks good regardless of the window manager. I've attached a show of Emacs in Slackware 13.1 to show what I mean. Notice the nice logo and fonts. In Slackware 13.37, the logo is missing and the fonts are different in KDE (and Window Maker). The logo is back and the fonts look good in XFCE (and TWM). See the other attachments.

Slackware :: How To Change Mounting Method To Suit Needs

May 18, 2010

I am after some suggestions on how I could change my mounting method to suit my needs.At the moment, I simply mount the device to a location as root.What I would like to do is setup automounting, but in a particular way. In particular, I would like it if when I put in a usb stick, it would be automatically mounted to say /media/usb1, and a second stick would be to /media/usb2, while an esata connected drive would go to /media/sata1

Even better would be if I put in the first usb stick and it was mounted at /media/usb1, it would *always* be mounted at /media/usb1, no matter what order I connected it to my computer in.I would also like to quickly ask about the difference about udev rules and HAL. At the moment I have only used HAL for my touchpad, and have not touched udev at all. What are the differences/advantages etc...

Slackware :: Systematic Method For Troubleshooting Low Sound

Aug 4, 2010

I have a system Intel sound chips running Slackware 13.1, full install. The sound is very low, whether through speakers or headphones. I have tried many things from searches online and especially here at LQ, including kernel module params, /etc/asound.{conf|rc|xxx} configuration, reading everything under /usr/doc/alsa..., etc... no joy. But at the end of the day I still remain unclear on any systematic method of troubleshooting alsa/chipset problems. So I am asking here for a systematic guide to troubleshooting and configuring alsa problems, including low sound in particular, but alsa setup and configuration generally.

General :: Proper Method To Install Slackware / OpenSuSe As Dual Boot?

Jan 5, 2011

I just received my Slackware 13.1 & the 'Official Guide to Slackware Linux' book. I know that there is a big learning curve to use Slackware and that is why I purchased it - according to Distrowatch, "...if you learn Slackware, you learn Linux!" But, while I am 'learning Linux', I would still like to have a linux distro installed that would be more of a 'no-brainer'.

So the question is, which distro should I install first, Slackware or say, OpenSuse? I know that if I were going to dual-boot with XP, that XP should be installed first - does order matter for 2 linux distros too? Also, are there any points to remember to do during the installation processes so that I end up with a working, dual-boot computer?

Slackware :: Get Japanese Input With Scim-anthy

Nov 11, 2010

I can't seem to get Japanese input working with scim-anthy. I have scim 1.4.9 installed and the daemon running. I have the scim-anthy 1.3.1 package installed as well. I can open and modify the scim-settings, but I can't get the anthy dialog to appear. Apparently, ctrl-space should bring up the dialog, but nothing happens. I tried following the instructions on this page under "Open a program with japanese input enabled - via command line", but still no dialog. After starting the daemon, I tried:

Code: XMODIFIERS='@im=SCIM' LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 gvim And no luck. Note that I don't really understand what that command is supposed to do. Should it be something different?
