View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems with SCIM

November 9th, 2008, 09:18 PM
When I use the Ctrl+Space trigger keys, nothing comes up. The best I can get from SCIM is some overall strange behavior, and a tray icon if I'm lucky.

When I run the "scim" command from the terminal, it freezes at "Starting SCIM" and never goes farther. When I use the "scim-bridge" command, I get a "Failed to open the panel socket" error. Sometimes when I run programs from the command line like evince or songbird, I will get a bunch of SCIM error messages along with "The messenger is now down."

I really have no idea where to begin fixing this. Help is appreciated. :)
