I am using Abiword, Inkscape and Gimp as GTK programs and I input Japanese and
Chinese with scim.
I switched the input module with GTK_IM_MODULE=scim to scim and this works
fine, but the problem is the following:
Because Japanese and Chinese need to modify the entered string, usually a pop
up box appears where the user can choose the desired character. But in
Inkscape and Abiword, and partly in GIMP, the problem is, that the entered
character do not appear “on the spot”.
I made a screenshot to illustrate the issue:
The correct behaviour should be that the “こんば” appears right after the |, just
like any other Text you're typing and the drop box with the Kanji characters
should appear below the text.
It is odd that this works perfectly in Firefox. But it is almost unusable in
Inkscape and Abiword, because you don't know where this box will
appear and you can’t concentrate on typing. I already wrote to the Inkscape
mailing list, but they don't know anything about it, and because it also
appears in Abiword, I think this could be a GTK issue.
In Inkscape, the same behaviour also appears on my Windows system.
Does someone know how to solve this problem? I think these behaviours would
make these programmes almost unsuable to people in China, Japan or Korea.
