scim in OpenSuse-11.2 is working in a strange way. Scim applet is
not visible in the gnome/kde panel when the system starts although it is running in the background.
ps -u purnendu |grep scim 4336 ? 00:00:00 scim-launcher 4340 ? 00:00:00 scim-helper-man 4341 ? 00:00:00 scim-panel-gtk 4343 ? 00:00:00 scim-launcher 4605 ? 00:00:00 scim-bridge
Now I kill the instance of scim-panel-gtk and scim applet appears in the panel and everything seems okay. To add to confusion, you launch/close Yast and
and a new scim applet appears/disappears from the panel.
Anyone having any clue what is happening here? How one can make it work the way it is supposed to work?
