dxhanyuim(1X)dxhanyuim(1X)NAMEdxhanyuim - An input server for Traditional Chinese
In a Motif environment such as CDE, Asian language input methods are
supported by independent processes called input servers.
The Traditional Chinese input server (dxhanyuim) is an X client process
that can run on a standard X server, provided that the server system
has the required Traditional Chinese fonts installed. This means that
the input server can run on any system that can access your X display
device, including the device itself.
Starting the Input Server
If your CDE session language is set to Traditional Chinese, the Tradi‐
tional Chinese input server is started automatically, and both the lan‐
guage setting and the Traditional Chinese input method are available
for applications that you start during that session. If your session
language is not set to Traditional Chinese, you can switch to Tradi‐
tional Chinese from a terminal emulation window by setting the LANG
environment variable to a Traditional Chinese locale. From the same
terminal emulation window, you must also use the command line to start
the Traditional Chinese input method server and then other applications
in which you want to use Traditional Chinese.
You can start the input server on your local workstation by using the
% /usr/bin/X11/dxhanyuim &
If you want to start the input server on a remote system, log on the
remote system, and enter the following commands. Substitute the name of
your local system for <display_name> in the first command.
% setenv DISPLAY <display_name>:0 % /usr/bin/X11/dxhanyuim &
After the input server is started, any Motif applications that have
been internationalized to support Traditional Chinese can communicate
with the server to obtain input method services. Applications must be
started after the server is started. However, if the application con‐
tains an XmText or XmTextField widget with the Reconnectable resource
set to True, the application will be able to establish a connection
with the input server when the application starts first or when the
server stops and restarts. See the XmText(3X) or XmTextField(3X) refer‐
This input server uses X11R6. It can connect to input-method clients
running X11R4, X11R5, or X11R6 under the same locale. However, support
for multiple monitors (multi-head systems) is available only to clients
also running X11R6. Support for multiple monitors is not available to
input-method clients using X11R5 or X11R4.
If you are using a PC-style keyboard, the input server may not recog‐
nize the Backspace key as the way to delete the previous character in
the input method preediting area. In this case, you must use the Delete
key to delete the character.
The default Shift/Alt/Space key sequence for activating and deactivat‐
ing the input method may not work under CDE. In this case, invoke the
dialog box for Input Method Customization and change the key sequence
for Start Input Method and End Input Method to something other than
