Problem whit kinput2


Hi There. I start to study japanese and I want to write it whit my FC4 distribution. I was looking and I found that I need to install kinput2, canna and wnn or domething like that.

By the way I had installed:

kinput2-canna-wnn6-v3.1-4.i386.rpm
Canna-3.7-1.i586.rpm
Canna-libs-3.5b2-41.i586.rpm
FreeWnn-libs-1.10pl020-6.fc4.i386.rpm
kterm-6.2.0-8.i386.rpm
locale-ja-9-1.noarch.rpm
Wnn6-SDK-1.0-25.i386.rpm

And when I try to run kinput2 I get the next message:

# kinput2.canna-wnn6
Warning: ccWnn Object: can't connect to jserver
Warning: ccWnn Object: can't connect to jserver

That error sais that the jserver is not running, but I can't run jserver, my system sais that I don't have it.

Can anybody help me? Thanks.

Do yourself a favor and install scim. It's a wrapper program for various input methods. It's much more user friendly than working with kinput2/canna alone. When I was using kinput2/canna I had to use a script to change the environment to Japanese every time I wanted to use Japanese in a program. But scim allows you to keep a full native-language environment while also allowing you to have foreign input support. You can use canna with it, but there are several other backends available. I like Anthy myself.

The real only drawback, if you could call it that, is that you will have to convert your system to a utf8 environment (if you haven't already).

See the link below for more. Especially look at section 6.4 about input methods.

You may also need to install anthy, scim-anthy and kasumi.
(kasumi is optional.)

Thanks, but I have allready installed scim-anthy, but I don't know how does scim function. It doesn't have manual or anything... Or I don't know where is it the manual.

Try to add following lines to your .xinitrc. then restart X.

export GTK_IM_MODULE=scim
export QT_IM_MODULE=scim
export XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM
scim -d &

Those are just an example. How to set enviroment variables will depend on
each distribution.

i am trying to install SCIM-anthy... and i am getting frustrated.

anyway, this is the problem: during ./configure i get this message:

configure: error: anthy/anthy.h was not found.

and the thing is anthy.h file is in "/include/anthy" and not in "anthy"
so is there anyway for the ./configure to look into the correct folder instead of just looking for anthy.h in the wrong folder?

many thanks
