    Korean input with Nabi ****

    This is how to get Korean input working within Dapper - Gnome,
    using nabi as the input method.

    Step 1

    you need to install the packages nabi and im-switch.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nabi im-switch
    Step 2

    You will need to setup the environment for gnome to use nabi.
    Start by creating a file in your home directory named .gnomerc
    Code:
    gedit ~/.gnomerc
    Copy and paste the following into the file.
    Code:
    export XMODIFIERS="@im=nabi"
    export XIM_PROGRAM=/usr/bin/nabi
    export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim
    export QT_IM_MODULE=xim
    nabi &
    Save the file

    Step 3

    Tell im-switch to use nabi
    Code:
    im-switch -s nabi
    Now restart the x-server by pressing {Ctrl}-{Alt}-{Backspace}

    If you recieve and error (in Korean) or your nabi box is blank all of
    the time then your locale setting needs to be changed to a korean
    locale or a utf-8 compatible one
    eg. en_AU.UTF-8

    The button to switch between English/Korean is {shift}-{Space}
    You can select other buttons by right clicking the Nabi tray Icon
    selecting preferences and then the hangul tab followed by {+add}
    I chose the evil windows button as my input switcher (take that ms)

    Question Re: Korean input with Nabi ****

    I followed your method and installed Nabi.

    The Nabi icon shows up on the panel, and when I press shift + space the icon switches between Korean and English.

    However, when I type, it still types in English.

    What might be the problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    The issue was solved when I uninstalled the Nabi package downloaded from the Ubuntu repository, and I installed the source tar.gz from nabi.kldp.org.

    Re: Korean input with Nabi ****

    Here is my experience.
    I followed the first poster's instructions. All went well. I didn't need to download and extract the tar file like the previous poster.

    My setup: ubuntu 6.10 amd64, Jan 9, 2007

    EDIT: 10.04 is packaged with nabi 0.99.06. Korean fonts may break. Install 0.99.07 from http://packages.debian.org/unstable/x11/nabi. The debian package installs easily. Supports both Korean and Hanja.

    The instructions worked perfectly well for me also. No idea what might be causing an error, but I'd reinstall everything and see. Also, if you're trying to type in a word processor and text isn't appearing, you might check that Korean fonts are installed/selected.

    You need to change between 2불 and 3불.

    I have switched back to scim again - in that it is stable again, and can also do Japanese.

    Re: Korean input with Nabi ****

    It works, but I would like to change the keys that switch languages. It is default on Shift-Space which is tricky for my sloppy typing. I don't get a tray icon for nabi and cannot figure out how to change the configuration.

    Now I have a problem. I switched to 10.4 on 2 machines. nabi works on one and doesn't on the other. I have yet to figure out why so.
