SCIM bug fix for Ubuntu 7.10

After you have upgrade or install Ubuntu 7.10, you may find that you cannot edit or change the folder name under the Gnome. It is the bug of SCIM. You can fix it by following steps :

sudo nano /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim

The entries of GTK_IM_MODULE and QT_IM_MODULE should change to “SCIM” instead of xim :

GTK_IM_MODULE=”SCIM”
QT_IM_MODULE=”SCIM”

Log out and re-login or press “Ctrl”+”Alt”+”Backspace” to reload the X Window.

That’s all!

  2. Thanks!! This worked for me, but I have a small problem. I can’t use CTRL + SPACE to switch input methods on any program except my gedit text editor. How would I fix this? Thanks

  3. Hi scubasteve1,

    I think the following method may solve your problem but not sure.

    Or, try to reboot it to see if the Input Method comes up again. Just guess.
