Sorry, what to do you mean you got it work? Can you type romaji, and convert it into kana/kanji?

Yes.
I've fixed the Japaneseisation of my programs too. They all assumed Japanese and loaded in that. I was overwhelmed and quickly fixed it by not having kterm load at startup, but only having it load when I choose it too.

If you want to type just kana you press shift-space. If you wish for kanji you must press shift and the first letter of the phonetic you wish to kanjise. The rest should follow and pressing space should convert to kanji. Much easier to do in emacs then anywhere else (and I'm not an emacs person, I like nano/nedit). Not as easy as MS IME, but great substitute.

I see. I haven't got that far yet. Your results really inspire! Thanks.

Just remember to stop when it works, test it. Don't assume it's wrong like I did. Then you may turn your entire gui Japanese. I recently dl The Gimp. I set that up in Japanese.

Although I'm proud of this acheivement (it proves my Japanese isn't *that* bad), I should've paid more attention and stopped when I got it working instead of assuming it didn't.

You see, the problem is not having the GUI in Japanese, the problem is that I can not write in Japanese. Did you install some special packages for that?
I need to write in:
English (obviously that works)
Russian (и это тоже работает)
and
Japanese (sore ha, mada dame desu).
I did not have to install anything special for English or Russian, but apparently just selecting Japanese support doesn't let you write in Japanese.

No it doesn't.

I'm pretty sure this works.

Install skkinput.

Install kterm.

Run skkinput.
From kterm load the program you wish to write japanese in.

Press <shift>+<space> to load up the kana converter.


For some strange reason though, it isn't working for mozilla or opera. I'm sorry, I'm still in the same boat except I have an entire Japanese version if I need it. Well seeing as though my Japanese isn't the best (especially kanji) it's not much use to me.

I'm sorry to inspire, I failed doing it properly too. I'm going to continue to try to get it to work. Post your findings here as you find them.

Thanks.
