scim, skim and input to KDE programs
i installed scim (offical packege) and skim (compiled from source) on
the machine for japanese input. they work fine for firefox and such.
however they didn't worked for KDE applications (including
OpenOffice). i did some search and found a post about similer problem
in linuxquestions.org debian form. i changed export QT_IM_MODULE=scim
to export QT_IM_MODULE=xim. now it works with kde applications.
my questions is that is this the right way to solve this.
The "standard" way to use SCIM in Slackware is described in file CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT of Slackware 12.1.
You then have to modify the config module from "config" to "kconfig" in the configuration screen of SKIM and restart SCIM. Basically you will be running SCIM with the config module kconfig.
For your information, SCIM has been recompiled in Slackware 12.2 and it will work with KDE applications out of the box (SKIM is no longer necessary).
