       ucimf - unicode console input method framework


       ucimf is an input method framework designed for Linux unicode console.


        · Support UTF-8
        · Support OpenVanilla Modules
        · Support PCF, TrueType Font
        · Provide OverSpot style compose window

       Framebuffer mode is needed.

       You  can  add  "vga=XXX" to LILO, GRUB, or other bootloaders to let the
       kernel start with proper framebuffer mode automatically.
       vga=785  (640x480, 16 ), vga=788  (800x600, 16 ),  vga=791   (1024x768,
       16 ), vga=794  (1280x1024, 16 )


       ucimf needs to run under an UTF-8 consle environment, please use locale
       -a to see the UTF-8 locales that  your  system  is  supported  and  use
       command like export LC_ALL=zh_CN.UTF-8 to set up the locale.

       To  start ucimf with FbTerm, prefer to install fbterm-ucimf package and
       run fbterm -i fbterm_ucimf, or see ucimf_start(1) as an not-recommended

       When  the  user is running an FbTerm, key combination Ctrl+Space is the
       switch of enable/disable the input method, Ctrl+ShiftLeft to switch  to
       next  input  method, and Ctrl+ShiftRight to switch to next input method
       For jfbterm, F12 is the switch of enable/disable the input method,  F11
       to switch to next input method, and F10 to next input method framework.

       If  the user wishes to use Ctrl+Space and Ctrl+ShiftLeft under jfbterm,
       please  use  ucimf_keyboard,  which  maps  Ctrl+Space   to   F12,   and
       Ctrl+ShiftLeft to F11.


       ucimf  use  standard  *.cin  files  directly to manage its input method
       tables, per-user input method tables is put in

       Installing or removing a table is simply copy or remove a file in  that

       The  order  of loading table is managed by the name of the table files,
       for exaple you can name your tables like this:
       01_xxx.cin, 02_xyz.cin, 03_aaa.cin, ...
       ucimf will follow this order while loading input method tables.


       LC_CTYPE - use UTF-8 as to recogize characters. For example:
       export LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8

       OVMODULE_DIR - to customize OpenVanilla modules location  at  run-time.
       For example:
       export OVMODULE_DIR=/usr/lib/openvanilla/
