Hi all,

Is this mailing list still active?

I installed fcitx and fcitx-zhuyin on Debian 9.4 Stretch, and it works perfectly! I've got it running in fbterm and everything — really, it's very cool.

I wanted to add Cangjie too. The closest package I found in APT was `fcitx-table-cangjie`. I installed `fcitx-table-all` just to be safe, and now I have a bunch of new Chinese input methods — but still no Cangjie!


The configuration menu for most of the IMs above has an "Other" section that lists a table/cangjie.conf file, but I haven't been able to actually type in Cangjie, no matter how much I play with the settings:


Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Ryan

Did you have any file under ~/.config/fcitx/table/  that make cangjie invalid?

Sorry for the delay! I just reinstalled Debian. Totally fresh
installation, no pre-existing .config/fcitx directory, and it still
isn’t showing.

To be clear:

* I’m on Debian Stretch (9.4).
* Zhuyin (bopomofo) works.
* ~/.config/fcitx exists.
* ~/.config/fcitx/table does not exist.
* fcitx-table-cangjie is installed.
* no other fcitx-table packages are installed
(other candidates include fcitx-table-all, fcitx-table-cangjie-big,
fcitx-table-cangjie-3, and fcitx-table-cangjie5).

Any suggestions? I’d really love to get it working!

Alright, on further experimentation:

* fcitx-table-cangjie3 works
* fcitx-table-cangjie5 works
* fcitx-table-cangjie-big works
* fcitx-table-cangjie DOES NOT work

Can anyone explain to me the difference between these four cangjie
tables, and why I might choose one over the other? or is that beyond the
scope of this mailing list? (I tried google and wikipedia, and did not
learn anything concrete.)

Hi there,

As one of the de facto fcitx contributors/maintainer of fcitx in Debian,
I'm writing to acknowledge
that I am aware of this issue. However, my time is limited and I may not be
able to dig into it
recently. You might could also file a bug report to fcitx inside Debian so
that this issue is not
forgotten later.
