Switching Languages


Hello,

I'm originally from a Windows 7 environment and one thing I need for work is to be able to switch languages when I'm typing. Not just for these forums, but for other programs as well.

I tried to find one on Search but nothing but Programming Langauges came up so I didn't see a clear response.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

scim will allow you to enter non-latin characters. It is included in a full slackware installation. Check out CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT on your install cd. There is a gui setup utility you can use if you run scim-setup.

If you run scim-setup, on the GUI that pops up if you go to: IMEngine > Global Setup, it lists all of the languages that are available.
