KDE Input Method Panel Template:I18n/Language Navigation Bar

Acknowledgement

Translated "almost" verbatim from http://userbase.kde.org/Tutorials/Kimpanel_(zh_CN) .

Introduction

"kimpanel" is a panel Plasmoid for various input methods with concurrent Plasma theme.

Information
"kimpanel" is in the kdeplasma-addons part of the KDE SC 4.4(.x) release, so you should update your system to KDE SC 4.4.x, install kimpanel via package manager.


For Kubuntu 9.10 + KDE SC 4.4.x:

sudo apt-get install plasma-widget-kimpanel

right click desktop, choose "add widgets", place the "kimpanel" Plasmoid (likely "Input Method Panel") wherever you prefer.

Support for FCITX has been in trunk since r294. Users are encouraged to upgrade.

svn co http://fcitx.googlecode.com/svn/trunk fcitx

cd fcitx

./configure --prefix=/usr && make && sudo make install

ibus

Install ibus as usual. Then

For Kubuntu 9.10 + KDE SC 4.4.x:

  • install kimpanel-backend-ibus

sudo apt-get install plasma-widget-kimpanel-backend-ibus

  • open systemsettings -> autostart ,add
ibus-daemon --panel=/usr/lib/ibus/ibus-ui-kde

Note

ibus requires ibus-qt or ibus-qt4 to input special characters in KDE/Qt applications. (I doubt it --- there is XIM still.)

If the "kimpanel" Plasmoid is absent, please check $QT_IM_MODULE and set that to ibus.
