I can’t believe how long it took me to discover this pup. I am a Puppy lover learning Korean. I had almost given up on getting an IM working and having Hangul input in Puppy when I came across ttuuxxx’s link in another very old thread.

I am an average Windows refugee, but this venerable pup makes SCIM a piece of cake. I didn't even have to restart X or create a savefile. All it took was a few clicks, literally, before I was using Hangul (romaja).

The issue that puppyiso referred to is not peculiar to this pup. A similar situation occurs when I use Nabi in ‘regular’ distros. Double consonants like ㅃ and ㅆ at the end of a syllable separate and shift into the next syllable. Similarly, other letter combinations seem to merge or disappear. Using the right arrow key before starting another syllable solves the problem for me.

Example (first column with right arrow key, second column without):

오빠 - 옵바
한글 - 하을
고양이 - 고야이
있어요 - 이써요

TOP doesn’t recognize wlan on my eeePC T91, but I was able to get online on my Lenovo T60 after installing sns-2.1.pet. Then I downloaded an ancient Firefox/Bon Echo (?) from the PPM and briefly visited two sites. If you want to use it online, you will have to hunt around for the ‘least old’ browser that will work with it. If you just want to create documents or to practise Hangul, then it is fine right out of the box. Just add your favourite Hangul fonts, and you’re good to go. (I copied Nanum and Unfonts folders over from my failed effort at getting Hangul working on Tahrpup.)

TOP gives me hope that one day in the not-too-distant future more puppies will have SCIM or some other IM baked in and working as effortlessly as it does in this puplet.

I can’t speak for performance in any of the many other included languages. Also, TOP hasn’t been updated in almost a decade, so it will have some issues. Hangul input isn't one of them.
