Bug Description

Binary package hint: scim-bridge

I had launched gedit and hit the open-file dialog and pressed escape a few times.

It's possible to reproduce it, seemingly by playing around with the focus and hitting escape quickly in succession.

Hi Rolf,

As it's a new version (this bug talks about an older one), and a patch was applied, and it says it should be fixed, I opened a new bug: #409347

FWIW having upgraded to Karmic, this happens all the time when I start my work machine now. So many programs loaded from session it's hard to say which is at fault, it might be firefox or thunderbird or eclipse or nautilus, who knows.

What does happen is all text input gets sluggish afterwards, at least until I kill -9 scim-bridge (which doesn't last long as it seems to respawn).

Might just go ahead and uninstall the whole thing until this is fixed :(

does deleting ~/.scim/ help?

BTW: we switched over to IBus for Karmic, you could give it a try.
Just run System->Administration->Language Support and select ibus as
your preferred keyboard input method framework. After restarting your
session, you should have IBus working. What you need to do then, is to
right click on the keyboard icon in the notification area, choose
Preferences, select the Input Method tab and add the input methods you
like. That is, select them from the combobox and click the Add button.
Then you can use IBus like you used SCIM before.

For Zhuyin use Chewing, the package is ibus-chewing.

Crash in ubuntu-one happened when I was editing network-connections in nm-applet. After reboot all was ok again

IBus also prevents you from using deadkeys in qt4 applications: I personally find that a worse problem than the SCIM crash.

Arne, is this still an issue? Considering that Ubuntu uses iBus now, what should we do with this bug? Is there a fix upstream?

Rick, thank you for your comment. It is correct that ibus is the preferred input method over scim since karmic. That doesn't mean we close bugs in scim (unless you suggest we close them as wontfix which I don't think is a good idea).

This ticket got a lot of discussion mixed in. That's helpful for the users but not helpful for resolving the bug. Let me reiterate Ikuya's question. Is there anybody who can confirm or disconfirm that this bug still exists in Karmic (or even Lucid)? phudacia, are you using scim or ibus?

The comments seem to indicate that this bug does no longer exist in Karmic. Please speak up if you still have this issue. This ticket is otherwise slated for closure as "fix released" in due time.

This is my workaround to solve the scim crash (use scim-immodule as the xinput). Not sure is it help to solve this bug.

First, install scim-immodule as alternative, replace zh_TW with your locale, if you use english, it can be all_ALL
sudo update-alternatives --install /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/zh_TW xinput-zh_TW /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim-immodule 10

then config it
sudo update-alternatives --config xinput-zh_TW
or
sudo im-switch -s scim-immodule

then create a file /etc/profile.d/scim.sh with -rw-r--r-- root root permission
add this three line
export XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM
export GTK_IM_MODULE=scim
export QT_IM_MODULE=scim

Lastly, i can see inside /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim, the module is xim instead of scim. I am not sure is this make the problem.

Hope someone find this useful, at least user level.
