       dxim  - A multilingual input server for Simplified Chinese, Traditional
       Chinese, Korean, and Phrase input methods

       In a Motif environment such as CDE, Asian language  input  methods  are
       supported by independent processes called input servers.

       The  multilingual  input server (dxim) is an X client process that runs
       on a standard X server, provided that  the  X  server  system  has  the
       required	 Simplified  Chinese,  Traditional  Chinese,  or  Korean fonts
       installed. The dxim input server accepts input characters from a user's
       keyboard,  converts  them  with	a  user-selected input method (Korean,
       Phrase, Simplified Chinese, or Traditional Chinese), and sends the con‐
       verted characters to the X client. The input server can run on any sys‐
       tem that can access your X display device, including the device itself.

   Starting the Input Server
       To start the dxim input server, you must set the session	 language,  or
       locale,	to  Simplified	Chinese,  Traditional  Chinese,	 or Korean and
       establish an editing style preference. Use the following steps  to  set
       the  locale  and editing preference and start the dxim input server: If
       you use the CDE login language option to set the locale	to  Simplified
       Chinese,	 Traditional  Chinese,	or Korean, the input server associated
       with that language starts automatically. Because the dxim input	server
       can  not	 run  with another input server active, you must stop the lan‐
       guage-specific input server, or	any  currently	active	input  server,
       before starting dxim.

	      If  you use the LANG environment variable from a terminal emula‐
	      tion window to set the desired locale (Simplified Chinese,  Tra‐
	      ditional Chinese, or Korean) your session language is set to one
	      of these languages, but an  associated  input  server  does  not
	      automatically  start.   Use  dtimsstart  to establish an editing
	      style preference. From the dtimsstart window, select either Off-
	      the-Spot or Root as a style preference and select Default as the
	      input method. (The dxim input server only supports  Off-the-Spot
	      and  Root.)  These  settings  remain  in effect until you change
	      them.  From the terminal emulation  window,  use	the  following
	      command line to start the multilingual dxim input server:

	      % /usr/bin/X11/dxim &

	      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 follow‐
	      ing example. Note that, as with a local system, the remote  sys‐
	      tem  must not have another input server running and language and
	      editing style preference must be set.

	      % setenv DISPLAY <display_name>:0 % /usr/bin/X11/dxim &

       After the dxim input server starts, any Motif  applications  that  have
       been  internationalized to support Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chi‐
       nese, or Korean can communicate with the server to obtain input	method
       services. The dxim input server provides options for selection of input
       method classes (Simplified Chinese,  Traditional	 Chinese,  Phrase,  or
       Korean)	and  for  selection  of input method modules within each class
       (for example, QueWei input within Simplified Chinese). The  dxim	 input
       server  also  provides  options	for  activating	 or deactivating input
       method classes and changing the input method invocation	key.  The  on-
       line  help  provided  with the dxim input server describes all of these

       Applications must be started after the server is started.  However,  if
       the  application	 contains  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) reference pages.

       This  input  server  uses  X11R6.  It can communicate with input-method
       clients running X11R5, and connect with	input-method  clients  running
       X11R6,  under  the  same locale. However, support for multiple monitors
       (multi-head systems) is available only to clients also  running	X11R6.
       This input server can not communicate with input-method clients running

       If you are using a PC-style keyboard, the input server may  not	recog‐
       nize  the Backspace key as the function for deleting the previous char‐
       acter in the input method pre-editing area. In this case, you must  use
       the Delete key to delete the character.

       The default Ctrl/Space key sequence for activating and deactivating 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

       The  dxim  input	 server	 does not support Over-the-Spot or On-the-Spot
       editing styles.

       Commands:  dxhangulim(1X),  dxhanyuim(1X),  dxhanziim(1X),   dxjim(1X),
