       dxjim - An input server for Japanese

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

       The Japanese input server (dxjim) is an X client process that  can  run
       on  a  standard	X  server,  provided  that  the	 server system has the
       required Japanese fonts installed. This means that the  Japanese	 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  Japanese,  the  Japanese	 input
       server  is started automatically, and both the language setting and the
       Japanese input method are available for	applications  that  you	 start
       during  that session.  If your session language is not set to Japanese,
       you can switch to Japanese from a terminal emulation window by  setting
       the  LANG environment variable to a Japanese locale. From the same ter‐
       minal emulation window, you must also use the command line to start the
       Japanese	 input	method server and then other applications in which you
       want to use Japanese.

       You can start the input server on your local workstation by  using  the
       following command:

       % /usr/bin/X11/dxjim &

       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/dxjim &

       After  the  input  server  is started, any Motif applications that have
       been internationalized to support Japanese  can	communicate  with  the
       server  to  obtain  input method services. 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 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 function for deleting the previous char‐
       acter in the input method preediting area. In this case, you  must  use
       the Delete key to delete the character.

       The  default  Shift/Space  key sequence for activating and deactivating
       the input method may not work under CDE. In this case, invoke the  dia‐
       log  box for Input Method Customization and change the key sequence for
       Start Input Method  and	End  Input  Method  to	something  other  than

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

       Others: Japanese(5), i18n_intro(5), l10n_intro(5)
