NAME

  dxjim	- An input server for Japanese

DESCRIPTION

  In a Motif environment such as CDE, Asian language input methods are sup-
  ported by independent	processes called input servers.	 The Japanese input
  server (dxjim) is an X client	process	that can run on	a standard X server,
  provided that	the server system has the required Japanese fonts installed.
  This means that the Japanese 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 Japanese, the Japanese	input server
  is started automatically, and	both the language setting and the Japanese
  input	method is available for	applications that you start during that	ses-
  sion.	 If your session language is not set to	Japanese, you can switch to
  Japanese from	a terminal emulation window by setting the LANG	environment
  variable to a	Japanese locale. From the same terminal	emulation window, you
  must also use	the command line to start the Japanese input method server
  and then other applications in which you want	to use Japanese.

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

       % /usr/bin/X11/dxjim &

  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/dxjim &

  After	the input server is started, any Motif applications that have been
  internationalized to support Japanese	can communicate	with the server	to
  obtain input method services.	However, remember that these applications
  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.
