user@www$ sudo apt-get install scim-bridgeThis essentially allow you to access other applications using SCIM input method. Then you need to edit the scim config file using your favourite editor:
user@www$ sudo vim /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scimFind and change from
GTK_IM_MODULE="scim-bridge"Finally you need to restart your system to make the changes into effect. If it still not working, you might need to start SCIM manually:
user@www$ scim -dI noticed that this works for most of the applications, like Firefox, Thunderbird, Shell, Openoffice and Pidgin etc, however, it is still not working in a few of them, like Kate. but I think it is better than before when I can’t use it at all. If this guide doesn’t work for you, maybe you can try a more complicated solution in Adrian Hoe’s Blog. Hope this helps.
