Subject description: SCIM installed but not working
 

Hi,

my computer is an Acer Aspire One D255E with 1GB of RAM.
I re-installed the 64-bit Ubuntu compatible (English version of) ISO of TAHRPUP6.0.5 to the computer's HD and applied the following necessary fix: to prevent erratic cursor jumps, I added the line
Code:
Option "TouchpadOff" "2"
at the end of
Code:
Section "Input Device" > Identifier "Synaptics Mouse"
in the file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".)

Initially, Japanese directory and file names, as well as Japanese text portions on websites, were unreadable, but after using Puppy's Package Manager to install a Japanese font, everything became readable.

Next I used the Paxkage Manager to install SCIM (the available version there is 1.4.14-6), the related Japanese table, and SCIM-anthy.

No dependencies were reported as missing.

To get SCIM to start at each re-boot, I opened
Code:
Menu > Setup > Startup Control
and added the command "scim".
The SCIM icon now shows up in the taskbar (to the left of the speaker icon) after I boot the computer.

Problem(s):

The pre-installed key combination setting "ctrl-space" does not bring up the required input selection menu even when the cursor is in an input field.
Without knowing what "turn on" and "turn off" refer to in the SCIM settings, I took the precaution to add the key combination settings "ctrl-al-space" and "ctrl-shift-space", respectively, but they do not appear to have any effect either.

Related questions:

The page at http://puppylinux.org/wikka/SCIM mentions "SCIM-bridge" and SCIM-m17n".

What is the function of "SCIM-bridge"? Is it essential?
If so, why is it not in the Package Manager and automatically installed?
What command do I need to install it via the CLI?

What is the function of "SCIM-m17n"? Is it essential?
If so, why is it not installed automatically?
What command do I need to install it via the CLI?

(By the way, the download server mentioned on the page at http://puppylinux.org/wikka/SCIM does not appear to exist any more.)

Thanks in advance for relevant hints!

This may help you.
This is an old post, but it does seem to talk about problems you have and how to fix them.
