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

Japanse nor Korean support in any meaningful way as I browsed Chinese

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