Description:

skim is an input method platform based upon scim-lib under *NIX systems (including GNU/Linux and FreeBSD) systems optimized for KDE. It provides a GUI panel (named scim-panel-kde), a KConfig config module and SetupUIs for itself and scim-lib. It also has its own plugin systems which support on-demand loadable actions.

(skim has been incorporated in most distros, so you may want to check your distros repository first)

Hi there

my Skim is working fine, with all KDE apps and Firefox, but not at all with skype.

ctrl-space does nothing, trying to select it in a more manual way does not do much either.

anyone succeed using skim with skype? what's wrong?

when I type in Japanese with skim ...
does it use UTF8 or some other charset ?

I have a japanese windows here, but it can't read my file names I created in KDE.

also, IRC japanese channel requests people to use UTF8

could you help me with this issue. I'm so lost with charset stuff.

well, since I upgraded to KDE 3.5.0, I recompiled scim/skim/scim-* almost 20 times. It all work find on my laptop, but not on my desktop. I got scim-skk working once within those 20 times, but it was not exactly what my roommated wanted. scim-anthy which I use on my laptop, is great and works much better.

and I only have on gcc version on my computer. 3.4 though, that could be an imcompatibility.

when I go in the config, I can see english and japanese keyboard but when I click on dock icon, list is empty. when I go to the config again, it crash when I select the pane that should be showing available languages.

this is usually how I fix skim when it stop working strangely. (because it happened before, yes) but right now, on my desktop, even this does not work anymore.

I tried again, typing

emerge -av scim skim scim-anthy scim-hangul

and it just does not work. I also tried uninstalling all scim/CJK related packages before to start fresh. without success.

does anyone else has that problem with skim ? for a while it works 100%. and suddenly, after who knows what. skim keyboards list is empty. can't switch.

sometimes I've been able to fix it by recompiling few packages in some specific order, but I always do it kinda.... non precisely.

anyone have a real fix for me ?

PS: I'm using gentoo at the moment, but I had the same problem with other distribution as well.

thanks.

Make sure you compile all the packages with the same version of gcc

when you upgrade kde, recompile skim as well

when you input japanese, in fact, you still have your current keyboard layout: it does not change at all AFAICT.

So if you want to change to another layout temporary, it is beyond the scope of skim (at least atm)

If I choose kconfig instead of simple, skim doesn't work, i.e. the input method list is empty.

So I am using simple config. It works, but for each application, I have to click to Chinese input to make Ctrl-space works.

I am on KDE 3.4.2, XIM, and en_US utf-8

I have scim 1.4.2, and skim 1.4.2. Both compiled from source.

With kconfig selected, if I tried to run skim, it will say scim failed to load. If I run scim alone, it will either hang with 100% cpu, or exit abnormally.

With simple config, everything is fine.

please give more info

did you recompile skim 1.4.2 against scim 1.4.2?

Is scim/skim compiled using the same version of gcc as your whole system?

Hi I tried to install the skim program on my ubuntu hoary (debian based).

I already installed (1.02 given by the package installer available in this distribution) :
scim,
scim-chinese,
scim-config-socket,
scim-frontend-socket,
scim-gtk2-immodule,
scim-server-socket,
scim-tables-zh.

I tried to install the skim 1.4.0 but I received those errors even if I tried to find the UIC, MOC and so on not found items.

root@desktop: # ./configure
Checking for Python : /usr/bin/python
Checking for SCons : Use Bundled scons.

Perhaps you should add the directory containing "scim.pc"

Then I want to know what does I do to install skim corectly and be able to use it?

Thanks a lot and have a nice day.

you have to upgrade to scim 1.4.0 first before installing skim 1.4.0

Of course I installed it (scim 1.4.0) before trying installing skim.

Then ... ???

remove all old packages first

"Perhaps you should add the directory containing "scim.pc"

please search where is your scim.pc (from scim 1.4.x) is located, and adjust PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable accordingly

1. I do not have this issue and never heard of it from other users. Could you find someone else who encounter the same problem?

2. The input window (the latter one you mentioned) is supposed to follow the cursor. If it does not, then make sure that you do not select the sticky option in the configure dialog, under input window item on the left.
