I have several users sharing a system. Each has his own login name. 4 speak English and 1 only Japanese. I like to know how can I to set up the Japanese user to have his menus displayed in Japanese and scim loaded, without effecting the other 4 users.

The Gentoo forum has no usable information.

language environement is setup by your DE (kde, gnome ...)
To have japanese writting capability you need to install :
ibus
ibus-anthy

You put that in user's .xprofile :

Code: Select all
export XMODIFIERS="@im=ibus"
export GTK_IM_MODULE="ibus"
export QT_IM_MODULE="xim"
ibus-daemon -d -x


It should make it.
You may have to add locale to the system in /etc/locale.gen :
Code: Select all
ja_JP.EUC-JP EUC-JP
ja_JP.UTF-8 UTF-8

then run locale-gen command.

Thanks,

I now get some of the menu entries in CHINESE, but can't type anything in Japanese or Chinese. I will try 'scim'. This always worked with OpenSuse without any problems.

I had this pb before adding ibus-anthy, I had chinese but not japanese.
Here are installed packages so far :
app-i18n/ibus
app-i18n/ibus-anthy
app-i18n/ibus-qt
app-i18n/scim
Then right click icon in small icons bar > input method tab > select input method > japanese > anthy
and then switch entry with trl+Alt+space
