Subject: How to write japanese under FC1 ? From: "M.Heinelt" <M Heinelt fbe de> Date: Tue, 25 May 2004 12:30:12 +0200 To: For users of Fedora Core releases <fedora-list redhat com>

For users of Fedora Core releases <fedora-list redhat com>


some days before, I asked the same. There where no running answer for it!

My girfriend is japanese,so I need to write japanese under FC1.
My primary language is german. Now I need a function like in Windows, where a window is to choose the lyrics.
In some forums, I found the information to use the canna server and kinput2. But I don´t know to configure it.
When FC1 start, the canna server is starting,too

Help !!!


I have also been trying to get Japanese input to work in a non-Japanese environment. If I log in under a Japanese session (Choose "Session Language" from the login screen, "Japanese") then things work fine. You have to first add the "InputMethod Switcher" applet to the gnome-panel. Right click on the gnome panel, "Add new panel" -> "Utilities" -> "InputMethod Switcher". That should add a language indicator to your task bar. Under English, there is a bug that prevents the newly-added panel from showing up. I got this advice from Lawrence on the fedora-i18n-list mailing list:

Hi Dave,
Check if the applet is running by looking at the processes running.

ps -aux |grep applet

If it is running,

--oaf-activate-iid=OAFIID:GNOME_imswitcher_Factory --oaf-ior-fd=40

As you are in en_US locale, there are two way you can see the GIMLET.

Method 1:

GTK_IM_MODULE=iiim gedit (or any GTK application)

Method 2:

Right-click mouse in your GTK application and select IIIMF as your Input

Hope it helps, Lawrence --

After ensuring that indeed the applet was running, and then opening up gedit using:
$ GTK_IM_MODULE=iiim gedit

the panel showed up, and I could use it to switch to Japanese input. On restarts the panel has been showing up, although sometimes I have to add it again, or start up a Gnome application with the GTK_IM_MODULE=iiim environmental variable set.

If you only need to enter Japanese in Gnome applications, that should be all you need. This assumes that you did select Japanese langauge support when you installed FC2. I'm assuming you did. If you didn't, I don't know how to go back and add it later.

I have a further problem though, which is that I want to use the new iiim framework for input in a Java application. To do this you have to use the htt XIM bridge httx, but for whatever reason, I can not get Java to recognize XMODIFIERS= im=htt even when httx and htt_xbe (along with the other requisite servers) are running. I'm looking into that now.

Good luck. You might want to join fedora-i18n-list, as that seems more suitable to this kind of request.
