immodule for Qt


* What is this?

immodule for TQt is a modular, extensible input method subsystem for
Qt.

This project brings functionality similar to the immodule for GTK+
to the TQt library. The main goal of the project is to extend and
enhance the input method support in the TQt library, in order to
provide a modern and powerful multi-language input system. Our short
term goal is to make TQt (especially Qt/X11) "up-to-date" with other
X11-based toolkits such as GTK+. We are also focusing on what the
input method API should be for future TQt versions.

See our webpage for further information.

* About this release

qt-x11-immodule-unified-qt3.3.3-20040910 is a stable release. Since
it breaks backward compatibility (source and binary) about immodule
with our previous releases qt-x11-immodule-unified-qt3.3.3-20040819
and qt-x11-immodule-bc-qt3.3.2-20040623, optional immodule plugins
must be updated to proper version. See 'Optional immodule plugins'
section of our download page.

http://immodule-qt.freedesktop.org/Software/ImmoduleQtDownload

However, backward compatibility (source and binary) with normal Qt
3.3.3 is kept in 'Binary Compatible' mode.


* How to install

After extract the TQt archive, perform following instructions

cd qt-x11-free-3.3.3
patch -p0 < qt-x11-immodule-unified-qt3.3.3-20040910.diff
./make-symlinks.sh
./configure

Our patch provides following two configure options. Choose 'Binary
Compatible' for normal use.

Build TQt with 'Binary Compatible' immodule support (default)

configure -inputmethod

Build TQt without binary compatibility, but supports more advanced
immodule extensions. It cannot be used with ordinary application
binaries (i.e. the option is for developers)

configure -inputmethod -inputmethod-ext


* How to use

- See users manual of each input method plugins

- Run qtconfig to choose your favorite XIM input style


* Environment variables

Some environment variables are available for expert users and system
integrators. The specification is preliminary and may be changed
without notification. Be careful.

See following examples to use the variables.


- set "xim" input method as default

export TQT_IM_MODULE=xim


- set "simple" composing input method as default

export TQT_IM_MODULE=simple


- set "xim" input method as default, and disable input method
selection menu in the context menu

export TQT_IM_SWITCHER=imsw-none
export TQT_IM_MODULE=xim


- set "xim" input method as default, and enable input method
selection menu in the context menu (default configuration)

export TQT_IM_SWITCHER=imsw-multi
export TQT_IM_MODULE=xim


- set "iiimqcf" that has its own input method switching framework as
default, and disable input method selection menu in the context
menu. Such configuration is required by some system integrators to
provide unified user interface for global input method switching
over the desktop

export TQT_IM_SWITCHER=imsw-none
export TQT_IM_MODULE=iiimqcf
