Friends, I came across an issue, that used to be in one of previous versions of OpenSuse - no keyboard input in OpenOffice (now in LibreOffice) when SCIM is running.
On Opensuse 11.4 I ran into this problem once again and have no idea what to do.
On fresh install of Opensuse 11.4 and KDE with English (or Russian) language as primary language and Chinese as additional language SCIM is installed automatically. And in this case it works in every app (both QT and GTK), but LibreOffice.
As soon as I quit SCIM, everything starts to work OK (but I have no opportunity to input Chinese characters in this case).
That was difficult, but I managed to install IBus instead of SCIM on fresh install. And - surprise - got right the same behavior. Input works EVERYWHERE, but LibreOffcie. I quit IBus and input starts to work OK there.
I’ve tried to switch IM method in qtconfig to IBus, ran “gtk-query-immodules-2.0 > /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules” - all this was recommended in similar threads - nothing worked.
What could this be? Is there a solution to keep Chinese input enabled in LibreOffice with either SCIM or IBUS?
Thanks in advance!
To test the input I’ve tried the following apps:
QT - kwrite
GTK - stardict
Java - jedit
Input worked OK everywhere, but LibreOffice.
And one note: when I say “no input” - it exactly means, that there is no keyboard input. Not only typing, but also navigating menus with arrow keys and using keyboard shortcuts is disabled.
