Hello,

Running Slackware 13.1 RC1 32-bits, I'm still facing the issue described in this thread regarding scim-bridge and Firefox (ex: preferences window doesn't get displayed and segfault error message as described by OP).

File /etc/profile.d/scim.sh is executable.

My SCIM configuration after logging in KDE 4.4.3 is:

Code:
chris@darkstar ~ $ env | grep SCIM
XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM
chris@darkstar ~ $ env | grep scim
XIM_PROGRAM=/usr/bin/scim -d
QT_IM_MODULE=scim-bridge
GTK_IM_MODULE=scim-bridge
chris@darkstar ~ $ env | grep UTF
LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8
However when I modify the IM engine for GTK applications, I don't have the problem anymore:

Code:
chris@darkstar ~ $ export GTK_IM_MODULE="scim"
chris@darkstar ~ $ firefox
Does anyone have the same issue with 13.1 RC1 or am I alone?

I don't have any issue with QT-based applications (ex: Kwrite, Kword)

FYI: I'm using SCIM to enter Korean characters so my installed SCIM packages are:

Code:
chris@darkstar ~ $ ls /var/log/packages | grep scim
scim-1.4.9-i486-4
scim-bridge-0.4.16-i486-4
scim-hangul-0.3.2-i486-2
I've reinstalled scim-bridge package but to no avail.

Hello,

The issue is solved thanks to onebuck. Refer to this post.

How about trying to 'simply add the line "scim -d" to your ~/.xprofile file.

That works for Qt desktop environment such as KDE.

Does not work if you run Fluxbox.

scim-1.4.9 will not build on Slackware 13.1 without a patch. It was
not rebuilt between 13.0 and 13.1 -- have patched scim-1.4.9.tar.gz
and it builds now.

scim-bridge-0.4.16 has bugs ... I will fix and release new packages and
patches in the next day or so ... providing it works with gtk2 in Slackware 13.1.

If you're interested I've rebuilt scim and scim-bridge for Slackware 13.1
and now scim-bridge no longer segfaults. Also there is no desktop freezing
while using SCIM for me in Fluxbox or LXDE.

If you can build with these edited scripts or install the packages and test,
let me know if SCIM still gives you problems.
