scim does not show up
I know there were some people asking questions about scim and I did check the
posted messages. but mine is a little different.
at first I have got scim work well, I can input Chinese in firefox and other applications.
only acroread has problem, so I took the suggestion googled from internet. There
are basically two methods to deal with conflict between acroread and scim (change
startup script or reset enviroment by command). I tried all of them. HOWEVER, I really forgot what I have done and I tried all the best to recover it. The net result is that I can not use scim now, run
Smart Common Input Method 1.4.2
Launching a SCIM process with x11...
Loading socket Config module ...

Loading x11 FrontEnd module ...
Failed to launch SCIM.
I know this is familar to most of the people here. but I did make it work an hour ago. I do not know which configuration I have changed so that scim does not work anymore. Even if I login
a Chinese locale, I can not use scim either. Most possibibly I have changed some setting
about gtk, but I have tried the best to recover it, for example, I remember I changed
/etc/gtk-2.0, and /etc/rc.d. I reinstalled scim, the problem still exists. The scim icon does
display on the right top of my gnome desktop, but when I press CTR+SPACE, no response.
