I couldn't install that, due to dependencies, and to the fact I use KDE.

I had to use a .xinitrc file like this:
export LANGUAGE=it_IT@euro
export LC_ALL=ja_JP
export LANG=ja_JP.eucJP
export XMODIFIERS='@im=kinput2'
kinput2 -canna &
In fact the first row is mine, not from the site: without that, my sylpheed (for instance) would have been ALL in japanese (menu and the like...). Since I wanted an italian sylpheed, but able to type jap, I added that line, and it's quite fine.
I said 'quite' because it doesn't display accented letters, but this does not matter!!!
I'm really happy for this jap-facility, I can afford such a limitation with ease :-)

So now your script for a jap program is useless, but I can convert it into an `only-truly italian' program call, with no jap but with italian displayer perfectly (as b4); like this:
LC_ALL=it_IT@euro $1 &

So, thank you all very much!

また ねえ!
