NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dxim - A multilingual input server for Simplified Chinese,
       Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Phrase input methods

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       In a Motif environment such as CDE, Asian  language  input
       methods  are  supported  by  independent  processes called
       input servers.

       The multilingual input server (dxim) is an X  client  process
 that runs on a standard X server, provided that the X
       server system has the required Simplified Chinese,  Traditional
  Chinese, or Korean fonts installed. The dxim input
       server accepts input characters from  a  user's  keyboard,
       converts  them  with a user-selected input method (Korean,
       Phrase, Simplified Chinese, or Traditional  Chinese),  and
       sends  the converted characters to the X client. The input
       server can run on any system that can access your  X  display
 device, including the device itself.

   Starting the Input Server    [Toc]    [Back]
       To  start  the dxim input server, you must set the session
       language, or locale, to  Simplified  Chinese,  Traditional
       Chinese,  or Korean and establish an editing style preference.
 Use the following steps to set the locale and  editing
 preference and start the dxim input server: If you use
       the CDE login language option to set the locale to Simplified
  Chinese,  Traditional  Chinese, or Korean, the input
       server associated with that language starts automatically.
       Because  the  dxim  input  server can not run with another
       input server active, you must stop  the  language-specific
       input server, or any currently active input server, before
       starting dxim.

              If you use the LANG  environment  variable  from  a
              terminal emulation window to set the desired locale
              (Simplified  Chinese,   Traditional   Chinese,   or
              Korean)  your  session  language  is  set to one of
              these languages, but  an  associated  input  server
              does  not  automatically  start.  Use dtimsstart to
              establish an editing  style  preference.  From  the
              dtimsstart  window,  select  either Off-the-Spot or
              Root as a style preference and  select  Default  as
              the  input method. (The dxim input server only supports
 Off-the-Spot and Root.) These settings remain
              in effect until you change them.  From the terminal
              emulation window, use the following command line to
              start the multilingual dxim input server:

              % /usr/bin/X11/dxim &

              If  you  want to start the input server on a remote
              system, log on the remote  system,  and  enter  the
              following  commands.  Substitute  the  name of your
              local system for <display_name>  in  the  following
              example.  Note  that,  as  with a local system, the
              remote system must not have  another  input  server
              running  and  language and editing style preference
              must be set.

              %     setenv     DISPLAY     <display_name>:0     %
              /usr/bin/X11/dxim &

       After the dxim input server starts, any Motif applications
       that have been  internationalized  to  support  Simplified
       Chinese,  Traditional  Chinese,  or Korean can communicate
       with the server to obtain input method services. The  dxim
       input  server  provides  options  for  selection  of input
       method classes (Simplified Chinese,  Traditional  Chinese,
       Phrase,  or Korean) and for selection of input method modules
 within each class (for example, QueWei  input  within
       Simplified  Chinese).  The dxim input server also provides
       options  for  activating  or  deactivating  input   method
       classes  and changing the input method invocation key. The
       on-line help provided with the dxim input server describes
       all of these options.

       Applications  must be started after the server is started.
       However,  if  the  application  contains  an   XmText   or
       XmTextField  widget with the Reconnectable resource set to
       True, the application will be able to establish a  connection
  with  the  input  server when the application starts
       first or when the  server  stops  and  restarts.  See  the
       XmText(3X) or XmTextField(3X) reference pages.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  input  server  uses  X11R6.  It can communicate with
       input-method  clients  running  X11R5,  and  connect  with
       input-method clients running X11R6, under the same locale.
       However, support for multiple  monitors  (multi-head  systems)
  is  available  only  to clients also running X11R6.
       This input server can not  communicate  with  input-method
       clients running X11R4.

       If you are using a PC-style keyboard, the input server may
       not recognize the Backspace key as the function for deleting
 the previous character in the input method pre-editing
       area. In this case, you must use the Delete key to  delete
       the character.

       The  default  Ctrl/Space  key  sequence for activating and
       deactivating the input method may not work under  CDE.  In
       this  case,  invoke  the  dialog box for Input Method Customization
 and change the key  sequence  for  Start  Input
       Method  and  End  Input  Method  to  something  other than

       The dxim input server does not  support  Over-the-Spot  or
       On-the-Spot editing styles.
