PostPosted: Sat 30 Apr 2011, 01:53    Post subject:  Lucid Puppy: how to install Chinese in SCIM? (Solved)  

I am currently using lucid puppy.

since I am using scim to key-in Japanese, I installed these pets in the system:

1.scim-1.4.9.pup4.4.2.2.1.pet
2.scim-anthy-1.2.7.pup4.4.2.2.1.pet
3.scim-bridge-0.4.16-pup4.pet
4.anthy-9100h.patch13Bptn23/2009527.1.pet

The scim is working fine with these pets installed.

But I also want to have another language input, which is the chinese.

So, I went to www.scim-im.org and downloaded an archive named scim-pinyin-0.5.91.tar.gz

that claims to be able the user to use pinyin to input the chinese.

Since this is not a pet file, how I am going to let my Puppy recognize the files inside the archive? For example, where should I extract the folder to? And what are the steps after the extraction? Or I am still lack of some other files to complete my installation?

Thanks for the help.

Just configure the Puppy Package Manager as to let it know more repositories. Click the Ubuntu repository so that PPM has more options to choose for. There are Scim for chinese input, only thing is there is no package for traditional font.

Thanks to Ubuntu.

hi lcm123

for a font you could install one from the debian repo here...http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=ttf&searchon=names&suite=stable&section=all

Thanks for the tips, but I am not talking about installing traditional fonts.

What I mean is the Chinese input for traditional font.

Regarding the suggested language pack, it contains more than what I want. As had mentioned in the thread, "May work" with the puppy.

I had cracked my head for this input problem and had solved it with just pure luck.

So scared to trial and error now. Probably Wait until I got my time for it.

Been thinking of change to Ubuntu, at least they have better support over there.

Subject description: Type in Chines (Traditional ) using Cantonese Pinyin input method.
 

I suggest to install Puppy 5.28 and the packages scim-1.4.9-i486.pet, scim-bridge-0.4.16-i486.pet and scim-tables-0.5.9-i486.pet as described in my post http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=477958699&t=71644 . You will be able to type in Chines (Traditional ) using Cantonese Pinyin input method.
