I have been using successfully OpenOffice-2.4 with SCIM for nearly a year now.
Recently I installed 3.0.1 and it works fine as long as SCIM is not loaded.
However if SCIM is already loaded when I start OpenOffice-3.0.1, the
program starts and I can open a new Writer document and the cursor
will start flicking in the upper left corner of the page as expected.
As soon as I type something in, Office hangs and I need to use 'killall soffice'
to end it.
If I type nothing I can use the OpenOffice menu to exit normally.
I am otherwise using SCIM successfully with Emacs, xterm, Thunderbird and Firefox.
Here is how I start OpenOffice
LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM GTK_IM_MODULE=/opt/scim/bin/scim-bridge /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice
I met that problem some time ago. Before reporting, I first updated SCIM to the latest edition
and made sure that everything was otherwise stable.
The last point, is that I operate a double monitor installation with NVIDIA software.
My Linux installation is otherwise operating normally.
Thanks for any suggestion
OOo 3.2.X with SCIM on Slackware/LFS based system.
