How to unset XIM_PROGRAM?


More exactly speaking, how to make scim-1.4.2 which is installed through compilation of tarball work on mandriva-2006? Again, XIM_PROGRAM is a suspect that I don't want to see. Thanks for your reply in advance.

Goto http://easyurpmi.zarb.org and setup access to the software repositories
Click menu->System->Configuration->Packaging->Install Software and install scim, there's no need to compile it.

If for some reason you still want to compile it yourself then you'll have to post the exact error message here.

I actually just want to know what file defines "XIM_PROGRAM=scim -d" and where it is.

If you install it using the package it usually sets up that kind of stuff for you. Where does it ask for XIM_PROGRAM? Have you looked in /etc/profile or /etc/profile.d/ for something that sets it?

I don't know exactly what you mean - do you want to set the XIM_PROGRAM environment variable to something? Do you want to find out where its set? Is it just something that's needed to build the program from source?

My scim fails to work properly, and according to my previous experience, the problem should result from XIM_PROGRAM that has been set to 'scim -d'. The XIM_PROGRAM is unnecessary for me, and I don't want this variable at all. So I would like to find out where the variable is load and then to disable it.

Ya! I found where it is. It is defined in /etc/sysconfig/i18n.

What I guess is right! After disabling all variables related to scim but XMODIFIERS in /etc/sysconfig/i18n, my scim now works fine.
