Good CJK / East Asian input support (esp. KDE)

Duplicate of #308892
Status: Rejected


Setting up CJK support for typing kanji has always been a bitch for me and I always failed -- especially under KDE 4, even though I consider myself an experienced computer user.

Wang Hoi developed an applet that should make it all easier. It's currently in KDE-Review.

He wrote about it:

There is not much that can fail, actually. I think this is the simple procedure I used.

1. zypper in scim-anthy (package name depends on language you want)

2. perl -i -pe 's/^INPUT_METHOD=.*/INPUT_METHOD="scim"/' /etc/sysconfig/input

3. (log in again)

4. Shift-Space (IIRC; I changed my configuration to Ctrl-Alt-Space because Shift-Space is too easy to trigger in daily life).

5. Type SUSEは大好きだよ and profit.

My suggestion is not about writing a whole new IM stack, but instead activating it easier and offering a native GUI for existing IM back-ends. Especially on KDE -- which is openSUSE's default DE -- there is no KDE GUI for switching input methods. In the KDE3 days there was SKim. There is a KDE4-based GUI (see the links above), but it's notshipped with openSUSE.

As best as I can tell this, or something like it, is already present in the KDE4 factory repository.

I can't find kimpanel in any of the KDE Factory repo. However, it is available in the 
home:swyear:ibus  repo.

I use it with fcitx as IME, and it works really well.

This feature could be considered as duplicate of 308892 as SCIM is deprecated. KDE integration can also be handled in the same feature.
