Re: [Pkg-ime-devel] Bug#644361: fcitx: Typos in package description


I see there are few *input method* packages.

$ apt-cache show scim ibus gcin fcitx uim xsunpinyin

These can be characterized as follows if I remember right.

 * language generic: scim, uim, ibus
 * chinese specific: gcin fcitx xsunpinyin

 * GTK/QT IM module support: scim ibus gcin fcitx uim
 * XIM only: xsunpinyin

Someone needs to mke effort to

Very true.   More over stating CJK is wrong for sure.  There is no
Japanse nor Korean support in any meaningful way as I browsed Chinese
document :-)

Also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fcitx

I think fcitx now support GTK and QT immodule rather than XIM if I
remember correct.  This is what needs to be added.
