> Etoys does not work with Chinese input
> --------------------------------------
>                 Key: SQ-554
>                 URL: http://tracker.squeakland.org/browse/SQ-554
>             Project: squeakland
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: etoys, etoys-linux, etoys-olpc, etoys-sugar
>            Reporter: Bert Freudenberg
>             Fix For: etoys 2011
> Original report at http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/9620 (OLPC F11-1.5)
> Sayamindu's steps to reproduce:
> 1. Install OS 36
> 2. Change value of LANG in /home/olpc/.i18n to zh_CN.UTF-8
> 3. Change value of XKB_VARIANT in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard to olpc2 (XKB_LAYOUT should be US)
> 4. Restart Sugar
> 5. Verify that Chinese input is working by trying the language-switch button and typing something in the mesh-search-bar.
> 6. Start Etoys and try to type something in Chinese.
> Expected results:
> Chinese characters should appear, along with the PinYin input bar in the lower left corner
> Actual Results:
> Characters from the standard QWERTY keyboard appear
> Additional Notes:
> The squeak VM needs to be started with the -compositioninput option (this can be done via the etoys script in /usr/bin). However, even after that, Chinese characters appear correctly only after the locale (LANG, LC_ALL env variables) are set to ja_JP.UTF-8
