I’m here to share. I’m not an expert, just a newbie user of Ubuntu (Jaunty Jackalope). From time to time I want some features that aren’t installed by default so I have to google or ask Mr. X (for Xpert, LOL). I decided to share the tips (commands) I got because that’s the spirit of Linux anyway. And I feel like writing after a long, long time of hiatus, teeheehee. I regret didn’t bookmark the address of a blog where tips like adding Facebook-chat in Pidgin was shared. Sorry; people, self. >.<
Few days ago I nearly cried (I’m not exaggerating) realising I couldn’t write Japanese character in OOfice. Shocked and in trouble (because I couldn’t use my internet connection to google and to me mobile-net is not an option), I called Mr. X and ask for help. He text me commands to type in terminal and it’ll open a new window (great, I forgot what its name) where I should write the next commands). The condition is that SCIM and Japanese character are already installed (did I use the right term? I hope Mr. X read this and do some editing ^^v).
[L, my oh my, what a long prologue. What a blabber.]

here are the commands:

(open terminal)

type:

gksudo gedit /etc/X11/Xsession.d/74custom-scim_startup

a new window will show up and type these:

export XMODIFIERS=”@im=SCIM”
export GTK_IM_MODULE=”scim”
export XIM_PROGRAM=”scim -d”
export QT_IM_MODULE=”scim”

and don’t forget to SAVE ^_^

Maybe you’ll have to restart your puter… (._. )a

Again, thank you Mr. X. (hahaha, got u new nickname LOL).
