dxjim - An input server for Japanese
In a Motif environment such as CDE, Asian language
input methods are supported by independent processes called input servers.
The Japanese input server (dxjim) is an X client process
that can run on a standard X server, provided that the server system has the
required Japanese fonts installed. This means that the Japanese input server
can run on any system that can access your X display device, including the
If your CDE session language is set to Japanese, the Japanese input server is started automatically, and both the language setting and the Japanese input method is available for applications that you start during that session. If your session language is not set to Japanese, you can switch to Japanese from a terminal emulation window by setting the LANG environment variable to a Japanese locale. From the same terminal emulation window, you must also use the command line to start the Japanese input method server and then other applications in which you want to use Japanese.
You can start the input server on your local workstation by using the following command:
% /usr/bin/X11/dxjim &
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/dxjim &
After the input server is started, any Motif applications that have
been internationalized to support Japanese can communicate with the server
to obtain input method services. However, remember that these applications
must be started after the server is started.
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.
