Description hellstorm 2007-11-15 18:18:29 UTC
I have the locale de_DE.utf8 and I am using Scim/Skim to input Japanese and Chinese.

In almost all applications this works, but not in Openoffice. Usually I can just
switch the input method and then type, but this does not work in Openoffice. In
KDE-Apps this works everyhwere and also in almost all GTK apps (But with some
weird behaviour sometimes, Firefox supports it the best way).

I know have to write all Japanese texts in a KDE app and copy the text to
I can’t stress how important this is, because at this point, Openoffice is
almost completely unusable for inputting East Asian text (I don’t know if this
problem also occurs, if you have a complete chinese/japanese system, I have a
German system but need to write Japanese sometimes)

I've been using SCIM on Ubuntu Hardy Heron for quite a long time now without any
I use it to type in Japanese.
Recently I upgraded to the latest version of OpenOffice (3.1.0) and since that
time I've been unable to type in Japanese in OpenOffice ONLY! 
SCIM works in all applications (as usually), except when I'm using OpenOffice!!!...
I absolutely need it for my work and I don't find any solution!?...
Will I be obliged to return to an older version of OpenOffice in order to be
able to use SCIM again???...
