[The problems described below happens with SCIM in Xubuntu 6.06 (which I use on
a machine that can't handle Suse), so I could understand no answer coming from
this Suse-list. However, it's all about SCIM. Got no answer on Ubuntu lists.]
I installed scim-tables, scim-m17n, (and all dependencies, trusting Synaptic).
Now, at least the m17n-part doesn't work in Scim.
In Scim Setup > IMEngine > Generic Table > Table Management, I see that for
example "Arabic" is in the file /usr/share/scim/tables/Arabic.bin
Now I want to install the m17n input methods too, so in the Setup I try
In the directory /usr/share/m17n/... there are files such as zh-pinyin.mim,
latn-pre.mim, he-kbd.mim, or CP1258.map and many others.
Trying to install one of these, I read "Error - Failed to load the table file!"
I guess the directory /usr/share/m17n/ is not usable to Scim?
I tried copying the files in /usr/share/m17n to /usr/share/scim, but to no
effect. Same "Error - Failed to load the table file!"
