immodule for Qt * What is this? immodule for Qt is a modular, extensible input method subsystem for Qt. This project brings functionality similar to the immodule for GTK+ to the Qt library. The main goal of the project is to extend and enhance the input method support in the Qt library, in order to provide a modern and powerful multi-language input system. Our short term goal is to make Qt (especially Qt/X11) "up-to-date" with other X11-based toolkits such as GTK+. We are also focusing on what the input method API should be for future Qt versions. See our webpage for further information. http://immodule-qt.freedesktop.org/ * About this release qt-x11-immodule-unified-qt3.3.3-20040910 is a stable release. Since it breaks backward compatibility (source and binary) about immodule with our previous releases qt-x11-immodule-unified-qt3.3.3-20040819 and qt-x11-immodule-bc-qt3.3.2-20040623, optional immodule plugins must be updated to proper version. See 'Optional immodule plugins' section of our download page. http://immodule-qt.freedesktop.org/Software/ImmoduleQtDownload However, backward compatibility (source and binary) with normal Qt 3.3.3 is kept in 'Binary Compatible' mode. * How to install After extract the Qt archive, perform following instructions cd qt-x11-free-3.3.3 patch -p0 < qt-x11-immodule-unified-qt3.3.3-20040910.diff ./make-symlinks.sh ./configure Our patch provides following two configure options. Choose 'Binary Compatible' for normal use. Build Qt with 'Binary Compatible' immodule support (default) configure -inputmethod Build Qt without binary compatibility, but supports more advanced immodule extensions. It cannot be used with ordinary application binaries (i.e. the option is for developers) configure -inputmethod -inputmethod-ext * How to use - See users manual of each input method plugins - Run qtconfig to choose your favorite XIM input style * Environment variables Some environment variables are available for expert users and system integrators. The specification is preliminary and may be changed without notification. Be careful. See following examples to use the variables. - set "xim" input method as default export QT_IM_MODULE=xim - set "simple" composing input method as default export QT_IM_MODULE=simple - set "xim" input method as default, and disable input method selection menu in the context menu export QT_IM_SWITCHER=imsw-none export QT_IM_MODULE=xim - set "xim" input method as default, and enable input method selection menu in the context menu (default configuration) export QT_IM_SWITCHER=imsw-multi export QT_IM_MODULE=xim - set "iiimqcf" that has its own input method switching framework as default, and disable input method selection menu in the context menu. Such configuration is required by some system integrators to provide unified user interface for global input method switching over the desktop export QT_IM_SWITCHER=imsw-none export QT_IM_MODULE=iiimqcf
