It's great to see a new package of rxvt-unicode, which seems a very good (and fastest) alternative to gtkterm2 and gnome-terminal as a unicode-friendly terminal app. However, when I try to run it, what i can see is a mushy screen, and I cannot call Xim (Scim) like in GtkTerm2 and Gnome-Terminal:

So the question is: what is the basic setup to make it work, and how?

A short, quick explanation or demonstration is much appreciated. Many thanks! smile.gif

(Of course, RTFM is an answer, but i simply don't wanna waste all the time RTFM without getting any real task done... )

You can modify ~/.Xdefaults to change settings for rxvt-unicode.
the default settings in my package is:
CODE
URxvt.visualBell: False
URxvt.inheritPixmap: true
URxvt.foreground:white
URxvt.background:black
URxvt.tintColor:white
URxvt.shading: 20
URxvt.fading: 20
URxvt.title:RXVT-unicode
URxvt.cursorBlink: true
URxvt.scrollBar: false
URxvt.saveLines: 65535
URxvt.preeditType: Root
URxvt.font:             xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-12
URxvt.boldFont:         xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-12:Bold
URxvt.scrollBar: true
URxvt.scrollstyle: rxvt
URxvt.scrollBar_right: true
URxvt.geometry: 77x25+0+0


you may modify this file to change the apprence of rxvt-unicode.

As I known, SCIM does not use XIM protocol, and rxvt-unicode supports input methods using XIM protocol only.
FCITX and UIM are using XIM protocol. I'm using fcitx now, you can try for it.

Thanks. The question is I don't use pinyin to input Chinese and there are far fewer inputmethods provided than SCIM, and fcitx only supports simplified characters, which i don't normally use. smile.gif

Off-topic: There is already a package for Alizarin Tetris 1.0,7 here smile.gif

How about UIM ?
I have not try for it yet, but as I known it supports Traditional Chinese and others.

It's a pity that rxvt-unicode only supports XIM protocol... huh.gif

UIM:

BTW,

next time before I compiling some stuff, I must do some searching first ...

Thanks! I've used UIM, I still prefer SCIM because UIM still only has very few inputmethod modules and only pinyin is for Chinese. ;P

No problem. It's just because the "New Package Announcement" has grown so fat now. laugh.gif

BTW I have recompiled GTKTerm2, optimized, no debug and stripped. It's much faster (as fast as aterm!) than the build in the official feed. And I can use whatever inputmethod I want (SCIM, UIM, GCIN, FCITX). Will post it right away. smile.gif
