enable scim in english environment

Good news!

You don't have to logoff your English environment and then login to your Chinese environment, all you have to do while in your English environment is open a terminal window (e.g. Konsole in KDE does the trick) and just log into your Chinese user in that console.

Then you can run scim and whatever application you want to type Chinese in. E.g. :

$ su chinese_user
password :

$ scim & oowriter

This will run scim and open Open Office Writer at the same time...

So you can be logged in to two (or more) different user environments at the same time and swap between them with ease...simple and cool, huh!

hi,

sorry, I didn't make that as clear as I could have, when you normally log in you log into your own name, e.g. john and you are logged in at the directory /home/john.

when you create a chinese user, you may give it a name like "gb", "hanyu", or whatever you like. So when you log in to the Chinese user, substitute whatever name you have called it for chinese_user.

E.g.

$ su chinese_user - in the above example instead of typing "chinese_user" you would type :

$ su hanyu
password :

hi secretlydead,

it's very possible, I have done it myself in OO Writer w/ SCIM...

you just have to change the input language in SCIM and change the font to Batang or Gulim etc. in Open Office...

(hand covering my face in slight embarassment)

thanks.

it seems now that, after Mandrake 10.1 and the newest scim, linux finally has a distribution that can compete in Asia.

Mandrake 9.2 / 10.0 were pretty average - for some reason 10.1 is very good, particularly considering Fedora doesn't come with mp3 etc. out-of-the-box...(but it does have certain advantages...)

LFS - lightning quick...I find it to be more educational than anything else...you learn a lot about a Linux system when you compile all the packages (starting from glibc etc.) yourself.

I am rebuilding again on my new AMD64 3.0G, but it is a slow process as I don't have a lot of free time...

one day I hope to use it as my main system, with only the things I want on it (Chinese, audio/midi stuff etc.)
