Got to thinking about how QT programs handled, say, Japanese input under KDE. Obviously, they would rely on an IM Engine (which would get installed along with KDE) for this.
Turns out, QT progs. recognize dead-keys just fine in LXQT, too, if you point 'em to one and do some minor config.
- Install an IME first (here, UIM):
# pkgin install -y uim
- Run IME and point QT to it. In
~/.xinitrc (or elsewhere)
# export GTK_IM_MODULE='uim'
- Configure IME for Latin input:
- Go to
- Check the
Specify default IM box
Default input method to
@pin might want to indicate in the LXQT install messages that an IME is required to process dead-keys and intl. char. input.
