Basically, I want to know the difference in function between scim and ibus.
In order to be able to input Chinese characters, I have done the following:
1. installed scim and scim-pinyin packages.
2. installed language packs
3. locale configuration
.However, I was unable to input Chinese characters until I activated the ibus daemon. Subsequently, in order to input Chinese characters I do it via the IBus icon in the system tray. Since IBus seems to be doing the job just fine, I haven't tried to get scim working.
im-switch -z en_US -s scim
Any idea why scim isn't working?
What's the difference between scim and ibus; is one recommended over the other?
