is there a rpm for scim-pinyin ?
I just the download and again it does not work, first mozilla will not start when I have scim installed, and the icon does not appear.
Back to the drawing board.

i didn't get scim-pinyin in rpm. i installed it from source without any problem. I use firefox and it works fine for me and scim works in firefox too.

Hi did you do anything else apart from ./configure - make - make install ?

Did you have to put some lines in someplaces ?
Did yo have to do export

I also tried the source it installed OK, and no problems with the system stopping, it all worked apart from scim, no icon and ctrl+space no action, in either mozilla or firefox or staroffice.
So I think you must have had to point to a path or install or create a file called scim.

that's a bit odd. In short, i didn't do anything else other than ./configure, make, and make install
let me tell you exactly what i did.

this is what i have

1) scim-1.1.0.tar.gz
2) scim-pinyin-0.5.0.tar.gz
3) scim-tables-0.5.0.tar.gz
4) skim-1.0.2-3fc.i386.rpm

i started off with scim-1.1.0 (uncompressed, untared)
./configure
./make
./make install

*since my subsequent compilation says it cannot find scim-1.1, so i changed the path (ac_default_prefix) for my scim to /usr instead of /usr/local*

everything ok

then to scim-pinyin-0.5.0 (uncompressed, untared)
./configure
./make
./make install

*now is ok after changed the path*
everything is ok

to scim-tables-0.5.0 (uncompressed, untared)
./configure
./make
./make install

everything goes well


finally, i install skim with the rpm command.

for mine, i can't seems to install skim-1.0.2-3fc intially, so i tried installing scim-1.0.2-1fc3.rpm first then do the above again and i can install skim. I am not sure if skim is necessary but that's what i did.


hope that helps and hope you can find a solution to get openoffice to work

You do not need skim if you are using GNOME. skim is a KDE GUI interface for SCIM. And it's not been ported to scim 1.1.x yet.

I made scim-1.0.2-1fc3.i386.rpm and tried it in a FC3 running in VMWare, it works without any problem. But I did not try OpenOffice, it's too slow to start it in my VMWare.

I use SUSE 9.2, scim works very well in almost all programs, including OpenOffice (ximian enhanced). So maybe it's something to do with the OpenOffice in FC3.

Why does scim work so perfect in redhat ws3 ? Nnd why is it painless and easy to install in redhat ws3 ?
All applications are working with scim in redhat I mean all including terminals, openoffice, staroffice you name it it works.
And why so many problems in fedora fc3 ?
What make fedora fc3 so different from redhat that scim wil not work ?

scim can work with KDE as well. skim is just another choice if you don't like scim's default gtk based GUI.

yeah that will be good suzhe if you can get a working rpm for fc3.

So far the only problem that scim cause is with open office.

Other applications that still doesn't have chinese support that i've tested
1) amsn
2) yahoo messenger

other than that those that i need to use seems to have chinese support.

I use gnome, don't mind of that,


thanks

am I missing something here?

This entire discussion of trying to install SCIM on Redhat or whatever is missing a big point.

To Seow_ming: Please open a terminal windows, type the command "locale" and see what you have. If you have something like "ascii" or "posix," doesn't matter how you install SCIM or anything else, it won't work. And your effort should be changing that locale to english.utf8
