Or, recompiled package from ubuntu universe repository?

I know that ubuntu developers recompiled scim in universe (due to
different gtk version), but I've never tested it.

Without testing, I would say XIM should work fine, but GTK IM module
most likely won't work due to the install directory of the immodule
plugin im-scim.so.


Wireless telegraph is not difficult to understand.  The ordinary telegraph
is like a very long cat.  You pull the tail in New York, and it meows in
Los Angeles.  The wireless is the same, only without the cat.
