PostPosted: Tue Sep 09, 2003 5:07 pm    Post subject: japanese input problem Reply with quote

I've read a lot of posts about japanese input and I followed most of the ways to do this, but it doesn't work. I'm using freewnn and kinput2, under kde.
The first problem I find is that .xinitrc isn't being read. There I have the following:
Code:

exec /usr/X11R6/bin/kinput2 -wnn &
export LANGUAGE=en_US
export LC_CTYPE=ja_JP
export XMODIFIERS="@im=kinput2"

When I start X kinput didn't start and the variables aren't in env, so I guess it isn't being read. Any ideas why?
Anyway, if I run them manually should be the same right?, but after I run it, shift+space doesn't work to start writing in japanese jserver (freewnn) is started at system start.
Well, I don't know, should I have anything else to make shift+space work?
Thank you.

If you use xdm/gdm/kdm, .xinitrc will not be read.

Use .Xclients (it should be executable) add the WM/Desktop you like at the end and from gdm or other choose "xsession" as the session.

Wow, I can't believe it, after so much time, I never tried again but was going to research a little more in my vacations.
This solved the problem, thank you very much.

I've got the same issue, only one problem -- no .Xclients script. :(
Suggestions?

I'm using this thread as a guide. I believe Slugman (towards the end) had a similar problem. His problem was solved when running startx, which I'd rather not have to do after every reboot.

Just create it, and don't forget to make it executable (chmod +x .Xclients)
