Description : Input method configuration framework
im-config package provides the framework to configure and to switch
the input method on X Window System. This input method is the essential
mechanism for Japanese, Chinese and Korean (CJK) languages to enter
their non-ASCII native characters.
Many modern input methods such as IBus support not only one of these CJK
languages but support almost all languages simultaneously by
dynamically switching keyboard modes with GUI helper program.
By installing this package, the most desirable input method and its
backend conversion engine are automatically configured with both the X
Window System Input Method (XIM), GTK input method module and Qt input
You can further customize your input method with 'im-config' command.
This package is intended to replace im-switch which I maintain. All Chinese,
Japanese , Korean, ... Input Methods tends to rely on im-switch for their easy
im-switch uses update-alternatives in very complicated way which makes quite
difficult to understand. This package solves it.
(Actually, I added GUI to im-switch, so it became easier ... but this s
maintenance night mare. This im-config solves it with easy code with GUI.)
