The inputmethods/scim port

scim-1.4.9p28 – smart common input method platform (cvsweb github mirror)


SCIM is a common IM platform written in C++. It abstracts input method 
interface into several classes and try to make these classes as simple 
and independent as possible. With such simple interfaces, developers 
can write their own input method in a few lines of code very easily.

SCIM is highly modularized: most components can be implemented as 
dynamically loadable modules, thus can be loaded at runtime as you wish. 
For example, input methods written for SCIM could be IMEngine modules, 
and users can use such IMEngine modules combined with different interface 
modules (FrontEnd) in different environment without rewrite/recompile the 
IMEngine modules.

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

To make SCIM work when X is started add the following lines to
~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession:

    export GTK_IM_MODULE="xim"
    export QT_IM_MODULE="xim"
    export XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM"
    ${TRUEPREFIX}/bin/scim -d

To use SCIM within xterm(1) the character locale needs to be UTF-8.
For example to set it to US English in UTF-8 mode, also add:

    export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8

Finally, to display characters correctly make sure to use a Unicode
(ISO-10646-1) font.

To activate SCIM press Ctrl+Space.  For general configuration,
including hotkeys:

    $ ${TRUEPREFIX}/bin/scim-setup
