smart common input method platform

Smart Common Input Method (SCIM) is an input method (IM) platform. Input methods are needed to enter complex characters in many non-latin languages. SCIM provides a common platform for various plugin modules and independent IM programs, as well as a set of modules and programs on its own. It is highly modularized and exposes abstract interfaces, so that plugin modules with different functions can easily communicate with each other. The currently supported module types are configuration, IM engine, front end, filter, and setup GUI.

SCIM achieves the communication between IM engines and front ends through both shared library linking and server/client mode. It supports XIM protocol, as well as GTK+ IM module and Qt IM module.

This package is the main binary package of SCIM. It includes: the main program scim (GTK+ based) and other support programs; simple configuration module, X11 front end module, rawcode IM engine module, simplified/traditional Chinese conversion filter module, and their corresponding setup GUI modules; GTK+ panel and its setup GUI module; and a GTK+ based setup tool.

SCIM is a well accepted platform and features various input method engines for many languages. In Debian you can find the following separately packaged IMs useful: scim-tables-{additional,ja,ko,zh}, scim-pinyin, scim-uim, scim-m17n, scim-chewing, scim-anthy, scim-canna, scim-prime, and scim-skk. GTK+ users would also find package scim-gtk2-immodule useful for GTK+ IM module support.

For development on SCIM platform, please see the description of scim-dev package.

               Brief User's Guide for SCIM (version 1.4.4)

SCIM is an older and mature input method platform, and supports many different
input methods (IMs) to make input of complicated characters in X environment

There are SCIM plugin modules for many languages such


In GTK+ 2.x applications, you can use SCIM in two different modes, XIM mode or
GTK IM mode.  In order to use GTK IM mode, you need to install package
scim-gtk2-immodule (which depends on scim-modules-socket).  Then the
environment variable GTK_IM_MODULE will be used to determine which mode SCIM
will use.  To use XIM mode, set GTK_IM_MODULE to xim (also remember you need
to set XMODIFIERS to @im=SC


SCIM supports three different input modes -- XIM mode, GTK IM mode, and Qt 3
IM mode.  The Qt 3 IM mode needs an unofficial patch for Qt 3, because
Trolltech has said that such patch can't go into Qt 3 as it's considered too
intrusive.  Debian's Qt maintainers has included this patch into Qt 3 packages
since version 3:3.3.5-4.

Qt 4 has plans to officially support input methods, but the current st
