chinese input method on an occidental Linux system eeepc

To use chinese input method on defaut eeePC GNU/Linux Xandros, you have to edit :


with kedit or other vi

remove # (comments) on the following line (on 701) or add it (on 900/901) :

deb etch main contrib non-free

save the file

get & install the xandros repository key by :

wget sudo dpkg -i xandros-archive-keyring_1.0-3_all.deb

tehn update and install piying methode :

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install scim-pinyin

This is a (very) smart pinyin input method.

What’s a pitty this is not in default asus package (for a Taiwanese builder, that’s strange to don’t support anymore chinese input method ???).

Looks like on eeepc900 the older and less powerfull gcin replaced scim :(.
