NAME

dxhanyuim - An input server for Traditional Chinese  

DESCRIPTION

In a Motif environment such as CDE, Asian language input methods are supported by independent processes called input servers. The Traditional Chinese input server (dxhanyuim) is an X client process that can run on a standard X server, provided that the server system has the required Traditional Chinese fonts installed. This means that the 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 Traditional Chinese, the Traditional Chinese input server is started automatically, and both the language setting and the Traditional Chinese input method is available for applications that you start during that session. If your session language is not set to Traditional Chinese, you can switch to Traditional Chinese from a terminal emulation window by setting the LANG environment variable to a Traditional Chinese locale. From the same terminal emulation window, you must also use the command line to start the Traditional Chinese input method server and then other applications in which you want to use Traditional Chinese.

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

% /usr/bin/X11/dxhanyuim &

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/dxhanyuim &

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

RESTRICTIONS

This input server uses X11R6. It can connect to input-method clients running X11R4, X11R5, or X11R6 under the same locale. However, support for multiple monitors (multi-head systems) is available only to clients also running X11R6. Support for multiple monitors is not available to input-method clients using X11R5 or X11R4.

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.
