Good evening,
What's the status of x-unikey? I've just successful made xvnkb 0.2.8 to
work in my KDE3.2/FreeBSD 4.9 after writting a patch. xvnkb is another
vietnamese input method with a nice GUI menu. I can now write in
vietnamese smoothly with emacs and kde applications. Though, some features
still can not work: hotkey to turn on/off input regime, set font for
menu+interface. Another thing is that, I must change locale to *.UTF-8,
and in this regime, I can not input russian correctly.
I'd like to test in a -current, if all is okay, I'll send-pr to ask for a
new port of xvnkb :)
