When entering Japanese text one enter the words pronouciation, select the good symbols with enter and then validate the selection wirh the "enter" key. Everything works well with gajim except the validation. Striking "enter" has no effect at all.
Some explanation of Japanese input: during the transformation from pronouciation to symbols the text is bufferized and managed outside of gajim, when validating the buffered symbols are transmitted to gajim.
How to test it: there are many ways to configure Japanese input; with gnome using im-ja seems to me the simplest. This program can be founded here: http://im-ja.sourceforge.net/ A conversion server must also be installed freewnn will work perfectly.
Install the previous softs then launch gajim. Open a discussion or chat with a friend and then right click on the text area and select "input method" then "Japanese". To (de)activate symbol conversion press "maj+space". When im-ja is configured and in Japanese to symbol mode press the letter "a" and then the space bar: some symbols should be displayed in a buffer. Press "enter" and see the results. You can try on gajim and gnome-terminal (or any gnome application) and compare.
In im-ja it is possible to desactivate the conversion to symbols; in this mode it is possible to enter text in gajim (this mode don't need the "enter" key).
note: im-ja needs to be launched several times before working properly, don't bother the empty warning messages. im-ja configuration is quick, just save!
This is a very blocking issue. Maybe the problem is to be searched on how the "enter" event is handled. Thank you for your help; Gajim est fantastique!
