The causes of this could be all sorts of things so I do not expect other
users to have this trouble at all. But here are my circumstances:
1. Running CentOS 6.3 (running GNOME 2.x and all that)
2. I have mozc installed as my Japanese input method
3. I compiled GiMP 2.8 (and a boat-load of dependencies) from source
One annoying symptom which may or may not be related is the fact that my
GTK themes do not apply or carry over from my normal operating environment.
But the reason I'm writing this is that I cannot enter Japanese text
into GiMP. When I open the text tool, I try to switch over to mozc and
I cannot when using either CTRL-SPACE or ALT-~ (alt-grave). And I also
cannot do it by clicking the IME selection thing in the systray as it
says "(i) No input window" when I put the mouse to it.
I can, however, open up gedit or some other text editor, create Japanese
text, copy and paste it into GiMP.
Was/is there a compile option to enable other input methods? Or GTK
themes? Or for that matter command line switches or environment
variables I need to set from a shell script launch routine to address
either of these problems?
