dxhangulim - An input server for Korean
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
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.
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.
