how to keep scim work for ubuntu 9.10?

After upgraded from 9.04 to 9.05, I added a new user account to the system.
I found the following:

scim still working (after a reinstallation) for old accounts but it not working for new account.

in new account's terminal, I can use mouse right click to choose scim and then it'll work for terminal, but I cannot invoke scim for firefox, nautilus etc.

Then I found that I can use ibus although every time after login, I have to start ibus.

But ibus doesn't have a input method that I like, so I'd rather get back to scim.

Any one can help me configure my new account for using scim allwhere?

SCIM for Ubuntu 9.10


I freshly installed Ubuntu 9.10 but it didn't support scim.
Here is what I did to enable scim and its Korean & Japanese support.

1. Remove Korean & Japanese at "System -> Language support".
2. Install 'SCIM input method setup' at 'Ubuntu Software Center'
3. Reboot
4. Select 'scim' as input method and install Korean & Japanese support at "System -> Language support".
5. sudo apt-get install scim-hangul # for korean
6. sudo apt-get install scim-anthy # for japanese
7. Reboot

I hope this can help you.

Thanks a lot sundol! Very helpful instruction.
Although scim project has been discontinued, many have to use it instead of ibus since the latter currently provides little choices in ime.


japanese, scim, ubuntu910
