Re: multi-language debian

I got it this way:

I added the following lines to ~/.xsession (kdm)
/usr/bin/X11/kinput2 -canna &
xmodmap -e 'keycode 96 = Kanji'

First line starts kinput2 (using canna server, maybe you want to use wnn) on x startup, second sets F12 as Kanji key (thats my personal favour). If I want to use japanese input for some application, I start it using a wrapper file:

>cat ~/bin/japan
XMODIFIERS="@im=kinput2" LANGUAGE=en_US LANG=jaJP.eucJP LC_ALL=ja_JP.eucJP $1 &

So the following line runs mozilla using kinput2 as input method.
> bin/japan mozilla
Here I can input japanese Text

If I start mozilla without weapper, the German environment is set.

I hope, that helps,

Hello :-)

I'm using debian woody, localized in italian, and I'd like it to work in jap too. I mean, I can read japanese, but how can I write it too? (besides emacs, that I can already use for that)
I tried and set up a multi-language environment following chapter 9 of the debian reference, but I can't get it to work.
Do you have some advice about this?

Thank you very much,

Linux 2.4.20
Debian Woody 3.0
