NAME

dxhangulim - An input server for Korean  

DESCRIPTION

In a Motif environment such as CDE, Asian language input methods are supported by independent processes called input servers. The Korean input server (dxhangulim) is an X client process that can run on a standard X server, provided that the server system has the required Korean fonts installed. This means that the Korean input server can run on any system that can access your X display device, including the device itself.
 

Starting the Input Server

If your CDE session language is set to Korean, the Korean input server is started automatically, and both the language setting and the Korean input method is available for applications that you start during that session. If your session language is not set to Korean, you can switch to Korean from a terminal emulation window by setting the LANG environment variable to a Korean locale. From the same terminal emulation window, you must also use the command line to start the Korean input method server and then other applications in which you want to use Korean.

You can start the input server on your local workstation by using the following command:

% /usr/bin/X11/dxhangulim &

If you want to start the input server on a remote system, log on the remote system, and enter the following commands. Substitute the name of your local system for <display_name> in the first command.

% setenv DISPLAY <display_name>:0 % /usr/bin/X11/dxhangulim &

After the input server is started, any Motif applications that have been internationalized to support Korean can communicate with the server to obtain input method services. However, remember that these applications must be started after the server is started.
 

PC-Style Keyboard Restrictions

If you are using a PC-style keyboard, the input server may not recognize the Backspace key as the way to delete the previous character in the input method preediting area. In this case, you must use the Delete key to delete the character.

The default Alt-Space key sequence for activating and deactivating the input method may not work under CDE. In this case, invoke the dialog box for Input Method Customization and change the key sequence for Start Input Method and End Input Method to be something other than Alt-Space. For example, you could change the sequence to be Ctrl-Space.
