I switched to scim (no skim) anymore and it improved, but:

- used input methods: I can call reload from the menu plus call --reload.
If I choose exit, it restartes but the hotkey does no longer work. If I
kill everything scim related, then the applet restarts (automatically)
and I finally get the updated input method.
=> Reported to scim bugtracker.

- somehow the trigger commands (control-s) have problems after such a
forced restart.

I think I will stay with scim and try very hard _not_ to set options
which require the restart of scim since this seems to cause problems.

Hopefully, in SUSE 9.3 it will work better.


PS: The URL given in the scim.rpm file (
should be replaced by which is more useful.
scim-qtimm-0.8.5-2.1 contains the file /usr/bin/edittest. Is that one
really useful?
