Isn't the file read when one logs in to a DE? That is what appears to be
happening when I log in to KDE. Since I put those variables in
~/.bashrc, scim is working flawlessly for me. But this may be happening
due my ~/.profile which sources .bashrc file. Sorry, I always get
confused in these files intended order/situations of reading (including
In any case, I should have mentioned this, the main point my posting of
the solution was that in a newly installed system, apart from installing
those methods I just had to set those variables. It doesn't matter how
one sets those (perhaps in /etc/profile), but without setting those scim

We as Debian puts glue layer for user. Although you have power to

Well, I don't think these kind of warnings really have any meaning when
it comes to looking who posts what on the internet
Don't get me wrong, I know where you are coming from, but posting one's
experience, even if it may come from off beat path or from unusual
recommendations, is really what makes the internet what it is: highly
inaccurate, extremely helpful and quite interesting. What a mix!
Debian. There are many documentation in /usr/share/doc/scim and
/usr/share/doc/skim . Please read them. If they are wrong, please file
Thank you for pointing this out. Yes, I do refer to those docs. Didn't
for this particular situation this time though. I looked them up again.
They are excellent. To the future reader, to get scim working, the most
important sections are "Locales" and "Using Scim" in
While asking for help in this thread, I was hoping that I would not need
to hack around various config file to get scim working. Looking at the
readme file also made me recall wondering in the past as to why the heck
do the kind of things like the following still remain, "...There is one
limitation in SCIM, that you must tell SCIM the UTF-8 locale you want to
use SCIM in..." *Mus*t I? If I *must*, and this has been like this for
quite a while, why can't the package installer just ask for a default
locale during installation?
And reading the file further is liable it make a causal user confused as
to what method to choose. After some years of my first having read the
file, nothing seems to have changed in this regard. I wonder how Ubuntu
does this. Do they also want users editing system files after choosing
one of the various options listed in the docs? Browsing the internet a
bit, i looks like they solved the problem from Ubuntu 8.10 and beyond.
