Subject: Tk::Text ignores non-ASCII input from a keyboard with SCIM input method because XOpenIM() fails
Tk::Text widget ignores keys with a non-ASCII character if SCIM input method is used. This Perl Tk code: #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Tk; my $mw = MainWindow->new; $mw->title ($]); my $tw = $mw->Text ( -font => "{ DejaVu Sans Mono } 9", )->pack (-side => "top", -expand => 1, -fill => "both", -anchor => "nw"); MainLoop; exhibits the behaviour if SCIM input method daemon is running and XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM" environment variable is set. ASCII characters are displayed. ISO-8859-1 characters display a garbage and other Unicode characters are ignored. Pasting a Unicode string from a primary selection works. I tracked it to TkpGetString() that returns empty string because it does not use use Xutf8LookupString() because winPtr->inputContext is NULL because XOpenIM() call in OpenIM() fails and returns NULL. I dont'd know why XOpenIM() fails. E.g. a code at <> works. I tried Tk-804.034 as well as latest git tree. I tried perl 5.30.0 as well as 5.28.2. I use SCIM 1.4.17.
