NAME

  dxhanyuim - An input server for Traditional Chinese

DESCRIPTION

  In a Motif environment such as CDE, Asian language input methods are sup-
  ported by independent	processes called input servers.	The Traditional
  Chinese input	server (dxhanyuim) is an X client process that can run on a
  standard X server, provided that the server system has the required Tradi-
  tional Chinese fonts installed. This means that the input server can run on
  any system that can access your X display device, including the device
  itself.

  Starting the Input Server


  If your CDE session language is set to Traditional Chinese, the Traditional
  Chinese input	server is started automatically, and both the language set-
  ting and the Traditional Chinese input method	is available for applications
  that you start during	that session. If your session language is not set to
  Traditional Chinese, you can switch to Traditional Chinese from a terminal
  emulation window by setting the LANG environment variable to a Traditional
  Chinese locale. From the same	terminal emulation window, you must also use
  the command line to start the	Traditional Chinese input method server	and
  then other applications in which you want to use Traditional Chinese.

  You can start	the input server on your local workstation by using the	fol-
  lowing command:

       % /usr/bin/X11/dxhanyuim	&

  If you want to start the input server	on a remote system, log	on the remote
  system, and enter the	following commands. Substitute the name	of your	local
  system for <display_name> in the first command.

       % setenv	DISPLAY	<display_name>:0
       % /usr/bin/X11/dxhanyuim	&

  After	the input server is started, any Motif applications that have been
  internationalized to support Traditional Chinese can communicate with	the
  server to obtain input method	services. However, remember that these appli-
  cations must be started after	the server is started.

RESTRICTIONS

  This input server uses X11R6.	It can connect to input-method clients run-
  ning X11R4, X11R5, or	X11R6 under the	same locale. However, support for
  multiple monitors (multi-head	systems) is available only to clients also
  running X11R6. Support for multiple monitors is not available	to input-
  method clients using X11R5 or	X11R4.


  If you are using a PC-style keyboard,	the input server may not recognize
  the Backspace	key as the way to delete the previous character	in the input
  method preediting area. In this case,	you must use the Delete	key to delete
  the character.


  The default Alt-Space	key sequence for activating and	deactivating the
  input	method may not work under CDE. In this case, invoke the	dialog box
  for Input Method Customization and change the	key sequence for Start Input
  Method and End Input Method to be something other than Alt-Space. For	exam-
  ple, you could change	the sequence to	be Ctrl-Space.
