Hi List,

I would like to be able to enter some Japanese text while working in en_US
locale. Back in FC4 I managed to do that by defining cryptic XIM environment
variables an linking ~/.xinit.d.

I did not understant what I was doing then, but it worked.

In F-7, if I choose Japanese locale at GDM, I can press Ctrl-Space and enter
Japanese text (thought it seems slower and less intuitive than what I had in

What should I do in order to have it while keeping my localization at en_US?
