Default X input method in Kubuntu 8.04 RC with East Asian system language
In a freshly installed Kubuntu 8.04 RC, if the system language is an East Asian one, such as Simplified Chinese, which is chosen during system installation, then the default X input method should be "scim", not "scim-bridge" which is currently the default.
See this screenshot for illustration: http://
Also, if English is chosen to be the system language during system installation, and after the installation the user installs and adds an East Asian language (e.g. Chinese) from System Settings -> Regional & Language, then the default X input method (as in the screenshot) is still "XIM", not "scim". I recommend that as long as at least one East Asian language is added, the system automatically switches the default X input method (as seen in the screenshot) to "scim".
As a bonus, all the other options ("scim-bridge", "XIM", "Simple Composing Input Method") should better not be displayed because they're useless anyway.
