Bug Description

Under KDE 4.1, the scim-gtk-applet respawns a lot (and there are many instances running at the same time).

In fact, at some point (if you want to start a new process) you get an error that no more windows can be open because of
"maximum clients reached error"

The only workaround that I could find (and that I reported here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kde4-backports/+bug/263211 ) is to remove scim altogether.

If you have skim (yes, with 'k') installed, please purge it from your system and see if the problem goes away. The reason is that skim was installed by default, but has not been ported to qt4 yet. Therefor it causes problems like this in a qt4 environment
Also, please try with scim-bridge-client-gtk installed.

Changed in scim:
status: New → Incomplete

Perfect, removimng skim sloved the problem (in any case, I expected something like kscim :) ).. tricky name.

Besides, the workaround suggested in the fisrt message, created a huge delay until windows appeared. Now it is gone.

Thanks!

I had exactly the same problem. Removing "skim" seems sto help (I will watch this).

As I haven't installed it, there seems to be a dependency installing skim by default. I guess this should be resolved until Intrepid.

Removing skim doesn't seem to be a good idea. A lot of apps try to reach the applet and this causes a delay:
