Re: tcl and xcin input problem
the program that works great with chinese and diacritics is TreeLine
(http://www.bellz.org/treeline/). Basically I was loking for something
taht would display data in a tree as Leo does and that would allow me to
make a lot of notes around, define relations etc. The TreeLine is not
that great (Leo really is!, you know it if you have used it). Strange
thing is that I was able to input directly into Leo under Windows. So it
should work under Linux too.
Strange thing is that I can run Leo only from xcinterm-big5. When I
press shift-alt xcin comes up, but when I type it input normal keys from
my keyboard and ignores xcin completely.
If I try to run it from xcinterm-gb2312 it gives me this error:
Traback (most recent call last):
File "./leo.py", line 195, in ?
File "./leo.py", line 130, in run
root = Tkinter.Tk()
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1538, in __init__
self.tk = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className)
_tkinter.TclError: Cant't find a usable init.tcl in the following
then begins some mess with chinese characters and spaces and then it says:
This probably means that Tcl isn't installed properly.
Well, I understand it only to the extent that I can say that I should
reinstall Tcl. I did it,both dpkg-reconfigure and that from source.
Nothing. Well I would guess that gb is maybe more sensitive (?) and
that the error shows up in big5 only in the way, that I can't type.

The problem: I'd like to use Leo
(http://webpages.charter.net/edreamleo/front.html) for my MA thesis in
chinese linguistics, which means that I have to input a lot of stuff
both in chinese and in my native language which has few diacritics. Leo
is written in Python and uses Tcl/Tk for it's GUI. I wrote to the author
and it really seems that the problem is in Tcl/Tk, 'cause I have
another quite similar program in Python which is qt GUIed and it works
great with anything. Well Python handles unicode without a problem.
Basically I can paste into it (fonts are quite bad), but I can't
directly type in.
Any experience, help, pointers ?
Thanks fo help
P.S. Thanks to Andre for being always very helpful help ;-)
what other program you are talking about?
It Tcl/TK didn't convert encoding back to UTF it may be a parblem.
I don't know what kind of function you need for your thesis..
but personally if you want to use UTF, java app will be the best
choose from my experience.
