OpenSuse Chinese Input Issue with SCIM

Issue:

Using SCIM happily to input Chinese characters with my previous Linux distribution – Ubuntu, but using SCIM in my current OpenSuse is painful as the screen refeashing always crawls after selecting a chinese character, sometimes like system hangs.

Solution:

  1. Uninstall SCIM
  2. Install fcitx packages
  3. Add Secondary Language from Yast to include Traditional Chinese such that appropriate fonts are to be installed.

Configuration:

  • OpenSuse     12.3 (x86_64)
  • fcitx               4.2.7
Close Menu
