[Call for testing] ibus SlackBuild


Hello,

I have wrote a SlackBuild for ibus(http://code.google.com/p/ibus/) which may become the successor of scim. This script is port from scim.SlackBuild in the official source/x/scim folder. But I only have KDE4 environment and I don't use XFce or csh. So I put my script here to call for wider testings. Thanks in advance!~

Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Slackware build script for pycurl

# Written by Grissiom chaos.proton@gmail.com

# If you want to use ibus as your primary input method, you'd better uninstall
# scim package.

# This SlackBuild is modified from Eric Hameleers's SlackBuild for scim. It
# has not been finished porting but works for me. So more testing and debugging
# is needed. If you see "SCIM" or commented out blocks in this script, that
# means I don't know the corresponding part in ibus or I don't have the
# debugging environment(e.g., I don't use csh and XFce).Feel free to mail me if
# you have brilliant idea or suggestions.
# Thanks in advance!

ibus depend on GConf and pyxdg which both are available in slackbuilds.org . Actually ibus is only the engine, you may need ibus-pinyin for inputting Chinese or ibus-Anthy to inputting Japanese. But the SlackBuilds for them is quite easy. The attachment is the SlackBuilds for ibus-pinyin that I wrote. Have fun!

As long as it depends on GConf, it won't be the successor to scim in Slackware.

Yes, I have to admit that this dependency made me headache... I hope the ibus dev could get rid of this in the future.(Someone is suggesting using KConfig which may available in Slackware) I will keep an eye for this. Thanks~

Where did GNU get the idea that they can put a registry into their Gui. Honestly! there are standards for a reason. It's as if they don't want to be Linux... Ohhhh.... It's all so clear now....

Grissiom,
Just in case it's not clear (I know that English isn't your native language), please don't interpret anything I say as a criticism of *your* effort. I'm glad you are looking at ibus -- catching stuff like the GConf dependency early in the development cycle might help efforts to eliminate it :-)

No, I didn't ;-) I know as I' using Slackware, I'm standing on the shoulders of giants. I'd like to contribute something back. So any discussion is strongly welcome. Just as you said, English is not my native language, so if there is a word that make any of you confused, feel free to point it out. I will try my best to learn English as well :-)

Yes, I will fire issues on the project's page or even mail the author if I have the passion someday. But it depends.
