SCIM on ASUS Eee PC

ASUS Eee PC comes without “Quick 速成” Traditional Chinese Input Method. We can easily to add this input method on it.

Download the Quick.bin and Quick.png to /home/user and copy them to their destination.
Quick.bin
Quick.png

Call the terminal out by pressing “Ctrl”+”Alt”+”t”, then issue the following comnand at /home/user directory.

sudo cp Quick.bin /usr/share/scim/tables

sudo cp Quick.png /usr/share/scim/icons

Change the Eee PC from English to Traditional Chinese :

sudo nano /etc/default/locale

LANG=”zh_TW.UTF-8″
LANGUAGE=”zh_TW:zh”

Reboot your system and the Traditional Chinese layout and “Quick” are ready!

  1. hello, sorry am a new user to linux, have an asus eeepc. just want to check, after i alter the terminal, do i straightaway reboot the system?
    i tried it for a bluetooth dongle (blue soleil) but it didn’t seem to work – there was no bluetooth installed after i restarted… would appreciate if you could have any advice on this!

  2. Cynthia,

    Sorry, I never use bluetooth dongle on original Linux OS that comes with Eee.

    I have changed the original Linux OS to Ubuntu eee and you can try this out.

    As far as I know, Ubuntu 8.04.1 (or Ubuntu eee) can handle bluetooth dongle.
