Try installing ibus-gtk... assuming you are using ibus.

Re: [Help] scim do not work with firefox, pidgin...

scim has been replaced by ibus in Fedora (and most other distributions). ibus really is better, and (I suspect just like Wayne), I haven't used it in Fedora in awhile, which is why I'm not giving you an answer to your question. Not having used scim in Fedora in awhile, I just don't know the answer.

You could try something like, assuming that scim is running

XMODIFIERS='@im=SCIM' LC_CTYPE=(whatever--for example, with Japanese ja_JP.UTF-8) firefox.

In other words, if doing Japanese

XMODIFIERS='@im=SCIM' LC_CTYPE=ja_JP.UTF-8 firefox

However, this is untested for me in Fedora for a long time.

Yes, it's been a while since I used Scim. iBus works great for me. Installing the ibus-gtk package in KDE makes Firefox and GTK apps work properly. Perhaps it needs to be added as a dependency to ibus when Firefox is installed.

@Wayne & smr54 : thank you so much. I switched to ibus and it works so great.

Thanks all!
