Hi ALL,

I just uploaded three PET packages for Chinese localization and input methods for
Puppy 4.00. They are:

zh_e-4.00.pet ------- to setup Chinese localization
scim-1.4.7-i486-5.pet ------ main Scim program
scim-tables-0.5.7-i486.pet ----- Various Chinese input methods

Download from here:
http://dotpups.de/puppy4/dotpups/Localization/Chinese/
mirror:
http://puppyfiles.ca/dotpupsde/puppy4/dotpups/Localization/Chinese/

You need to install some Chinese Unicode font as well. I am not going to explain it here.
Please search the Forum for information.

Once you have installed these packages in your Puppy system, please do the followings:
1. Use your editor to open "/root/.xinitrc" file, and remove the comment, e.g. #, at the
beginning of the following lines:
#export XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM"
#export GTK_IM_MODULE=scim
#scim -d

2. Save the file.

3. Go to "Menu ---> Desktop ---> Chooselocale country localization", then select "local".
You'll see a new window. There are three additional radio buttons for you to
choose. They are en_US.UTF-8, zh_CN.UTF-8 and zh_TW.UTF-8. Please choose one
of them.

4. After you click "OK", X will restart.

5. Now, open "Leafpad" or Abiword in the Menu and choose your installed Chinese font.

6. Hit "Ctl+Space", and you'll see SCIM popup window. Choose your favorite input
method and start typing.

That\s it. Have fun!

P.S. If you have any question, please post.

Check out the Chinese localization package I made.
http://puppy.cnbits.com/sites/default/files/chinese_pack-0.6.pet

The install process is same as ordinary .pet package. After restarting the X server, you will get what the following image shows.

There's another package, called chinese_pack_extra, providing more Chinese input methods and scalable fonts. It can be found on http://puppy.cnbits.com(it's in Chinese). You can also find technical detail about these packages on that site.

hi nyu,

The Chinese localization and SCIM input packages work well on my Puppy, except I didn't find the scim-pinyin in the SCIM tray.

Since I'm the smart pinyin user I searched for scim-pinyin from web, and this may be useful:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/zh-cn/hardy/i386/scim-pinyin/download

thank you, nyu.

regards,

cecc

That's good news. Since I don't use pinyin, I didn't include the package.
If there is a demand, maybe I'll make a pet package. I guess people can
download the Deb package from the link you mentioned as well.

Thanks for testing.

It is nice. You are using fcitx as your Chinese input method. I am using
scim. fcitx is smaller in size and is very popular in PRC. My set up is
more suitable for both PRC and Taiwan.

Hi nyu,

First of all, thank you for making these Chinese pet packages. I would
be even more grateful if you could just go ahead and make the
scim-pinyin package because I will need it. Scim-pinyin is the only
Chinese input method that I'm familiar with, and I have tried the ubuntu
package, but it does not work well. I have not been able to upgrade my
puppy since 2.17 because of the lack of scim-pinyin.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi woodys, nyu

see Irihapeti's post May 23rd

My reason for pursuing the scim-bridge route is that it's localisation-independent. My son's girlfriend, who is Chinese, can send emails in Mandarin without my having to change the localisation language. I installed scim-pinyin made pinyin input available through scim-bridge.


maybe pm her for info

I'll make the scim-pinyin pet package and upload it to the server.

Actually, I don't know much about scim-bridge. I need to learn more about it.

Hi nyu,

I appreciate very much your help. But after further trying out puppy
4.0, I think it's not worthwhile for me to upgrade for the following
reasons:

1. It's slower than puppy 2.17.
2. I cannot upgrade seamonkey because of segmentation fault.
3. The encryption password is shown when I key in.

So please do not take the trouble to make the scim-pinyin package
especially for me. Your kindness is appreciated all the same.

May you be well and happy!

Hi woodys,

No problem. I made it to a pet package for Dingo already. MU will let me
know the final downloading location. Maybe some other people will use
the pet package Very Happy

I installed Dingo in my old computer with 400MHz CPU and 256MB RAM.
The speed is very comfortable compared to other distributions. Your other
issues relate to software bug? I am sure this forum can give you hands
and resolve them quickly. Let's make a better puppy.

Cheers!
