now I can get fcitx properly setup, as it will help in my

Do you know anyone who has setup fcitx in Fluxbox?
Perhaps I should setup another user just for this app.

I don't use Fluxbox so I can't give u guide. but if u use Linux, the config should be the same.

1. set ur broweser's character to gb2312 or 18030 or gbk
2. install Chinese font. if u want use gbk or gb18030 u should make sure that ur font support them.

Thumbs up

Wooh, it took me 2 minutes to configure Chinese input on Mandriva 2005 (cooker actually, but it's just the same programs)

(As root)
- adduser
- installed scim-pinyin, scim-tables & scim-chewing
(As my new Chinese user)
- fixed locale --> Chinese simplified
- scim -d
- kwrite
- pressed CTRL & SPACE, then choose the right table (simplified chinese pinyin input, dunno its real name) --> 我写中文

Hope it's as easy as this for u guys !

Hi People,
If you want to input Chinese in an English locale, just install SCIM and put in your home-directory a .xinitrc file, which contains a line like this:

export LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8

That makes writing Chinese in an whatever language environment possible, no matter if it's KDE, Gnome, Openoffice.org or Firefox. It is working for me in Slackware 10.0, but should work with other distributions as well. So no need to start programs within a console or as different user.

My /home/username/.xinitrc looks like this:

#!/bin/sh
# $XConsortium: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.4 91/08/22 11:41:34 rws Exp $

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $sysresources
fi

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi

if [ -f $userresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $userresources
fi

if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
xmodmap $usermodmap
fi

export LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8

# Start the window manager:
startkde

The last line startkde will start KDE when I type startx on a console to start my Xwindow-session.
For all people who like to use QT-apps, there is SKIM, based on SCIM but with a QT-frontend. In general no big difference to SCIM.

After starting your x-seesion, you could fire up SCIM by typing scim -d (if you have SKIM, then skim -d) in a console. I just put scim -d in my autostart folder in KDE, so it gets started automatically when I start KDE.

Regards
Burna

if you use skim, it should start itself whenever you login KDE

BTW: skim provides more possibilities and features than its gtk counterpart
