I have installed scim and scim-pinyin from the RC12 feed on my c760.
I have also installed chinese font to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF.
When I enter Chinese using SCIM (either trad or simplified) characters appear correctly in the candidate selection area (and elsewhere in the SCIM interface), but when I confirm my selection (by pressing space) the characters entered in the application (e.g. SciTE or AbiWord) become unreadable.
Do I need to tell individual apps to use the Chinese font? I can't see an obvious way to do this within SciTE; it should be simple in AbiWord, but my Chinese font is not listed under Format | Font - do I need to register it somehow?
Any help gratefully received - I know others have sorted what must be a trivial problem!
