Install scim-chinese (it will pull in some depending packages). 2. set you locale to any UTF-8 locale. 3. set LC_CTYPE to either zh_TW.UTF-8 or zh_CN.UTF-8 for Mozilla, OpenOffice and other software to 'recognize' chinese input. 4. set XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM 5. start scim in your X session 6. you will see a scim panel popping up. configure scim via the panel. 7. to actually key in chinese (pinyin), toggle with CRTL+SPACE 8. choose Simple Chinese as input method in scim 9. type :) Cheers Arne -- Arne Götje (高盛華) <email@example.com> (Spam catcher.
