I didn't even realize that there were multiple input methods from a
laptop keyboard. Smart Common Input Method, I doubt because it
doesn't seem to be very smart.
Openoffice is the only program that has any problems. Skype, pidgen,
term windows, Konsole, even gimp work perfectly.

Spell check works perfectly. Using it and cut and paste from other
applications is the way we are working.
Thanks a bunch and I'm sorry about my not understanding SCIM. I found
it on wikipedia. I'll read some more but it seems to be over kill in
