I use ArchLinux and I have problems with Japanese IME.

When I write by Japanese IME, a character can't be in text area with Skype, Android Studio, etc. (maybe those aren't gtk and qt apps)

enter image description here

It works for Chromium, gnome-terminal, though.

Do you have a solution for this problem?


fcitx(-anthy, but that should not matter) works fine with Skype here.

My guess is that you're missing some environment variables.

$ set | grep -i fcitx
  • Thanks, @frostschutz. I confirmed that settings. sh $ set | grep -i -a fcitx GTK_IM_MODULE=fcitx QT_IM_MODULE=fcitx XMODIFIERS='@im=fcitx' I suppose that It looks good. What do you think about this? – terut Feb 1 '14 at 16:13
