Input method in cygwin-x ?

Arthur Tu
Is there a way to use input method in cygwin-x environment?

For example, when I invoke emacs with
"""""""""""""""""
ssh -X remote-machine
emacs
""""""""""""""""""

I can't use either input methods in local windows machine or those in
remote linux server.

Thanks,
Arthur

This is something that I want to work, but I'm afraid I have no
experience using IMEs, so I'm not sure what needs doing, which is why
the section [1] in the User's Guide is currently empty.  I hope you can
help me with identifying what that needs to say!

I believe it should possible to start your IME (ibus, scim, etc.) in the
remote sessions and have that work.

Alternatively, there was some work done a while ago to provide a bridge
between the native Windows IME and the server, which I believe allowed
using the native Windows IME to input into X windows.  If that is
useful, I can probably bring that up to date.

Re: Input method in cygwin-x ?

Hi,

I did some experiments with ibus.

I have a linux machine with ibus installed. When using that machine
natively, I can use ibus without any further configuration, except for
ibus daemon startup. Applications like gnome-terminal, xfce4-terminal,
emacs24, google-chrome and chromium work fine ibus.

When I access that machine from another Windows computer with "ssh -Y
machine" and start ibus daemon with "ibus-daemon&", the following
behavior was obeserved.
1.  ibus worked fine with gnome-terminal, xfce4-terminal and goolge-chrome.
2.  ibus didn't work with xterm, emacs24 and chromium.

I am extremely crazy about different behavior of ibus with
google-chrome and chromium.

I think it is a good idea to bring native Windows IME into cygwin/x.

Thanks,
Arthur

Thanks for these details.

I did a bit of experimentation with a Ubutunu 14.10 remote host

ibus-daemon -drx
export XMODIFIERS="@im=ibus"

Gives me working ibus with xterm.

I couldn't get emacs working with ibus even locally, and setting that up
seems to be a bit obscure.  Are you using ibus.el?

Chromium just works for me.

Re: Input method in cygwin-x ?

After set
```
export XMODIFIERS="@im=ibus"
```

ibus works with xterm, emacs and chromium!

In fact I wrote
```
export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus
export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus
```
in .bashrc as suggested in some threads, but I forgot I was in zsh
environment...

Now everything works fine. Thank you very much!

ibus-el doesn't work for ibus 1.5+. As far as i recall, emacs24 works
with ibus1.5 without further configuration like ibus-el.

Thanks for testing.

I've added a few details to [1], hopefully that is correct and helpful now.
