When I launch Mozilla under ko_KR.UTF-8 locale and try to enter some Korean characters in a composer (or anywhere in Mozilla), Mozilla dies immediately after I press the key combination to switch to Korean input mode from English input mode. That is, I cannot enter a single Korean character in Mozilla under ko_KR.UTF-8 locale. Steps to reproduce: 1. XLC_LOCALE file for ko_KR.UTF-8 or en_US.UTF-8 locale file in XFree86 4.x is sort of broken so that it has to be replaced with what I'm gonna attach. 2. In /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale, make a new directory 'ko_KR.UTF-8' 3. In the same directory, replace the following two lines ko_KR.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE ko_KR.UTF-8 : en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE with ko_KR.UTF-8 ko_KR.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE ko_KR.UTF-8 : ko_KR.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE 4. Copy XLC_LOCALE (I'm going to attach) to ko_KR.UTF-8 directory and make it world-readable (also make sure that the directory ko_KR.UTF-8 is accessible by everyone) 5. Launch Korean XIM server ami $ LC_ALL=ko_KR.eucKR ami or $ LC_ALL=ko_KR.eucKR ami_applet 6. set the XMODIFIERS env. variable $ export XMODIFIERS=@im=Ami 7. Launch mozilla under ko_KR.UTF-8 locale $ LC_ALL=ko_KR.UTF-8 mozilla 8. Go to Windows|Compose 9. Try to enter some Korean characters You can switch to Korean mode by pressing left-shift key and space simultaneously. 10. Mozilla crashes right away.
Created attachment 79963 [details] XLC_LOCALE file for ko_KR.UTF-8 This file has to be put as XLC_LOCALE in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/ko_KR.UTF-8
Jungshik: Could you provide your build id and Talkback incident ID? If not, could you install the latest nightly build and try it again? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/
Severity: major → critical
Adam: Sorry I forgot to specify the build ID. It's 1.0RC1 (2002041711). As for the talkback ID, how can I get one? I've filed a number of talkbacks vis talkbak agent, but I've never received any talkback ID. I'm running Redhat 7.1 (with XFree86 4.1.0). If necessary, I'll try the latest nightly from the trunk (or should I try 1.0-branch nightly build?).
Katakai-san, Could you try Mozilla 1.0RC1 under ja_JP.UTF-8 locale on both RedHat Linux (if you have one handy) and Solaris? For RedHat 7.x, you may(or may not) have to do for ja_JP.UTF-8 XLC_LOCALE file something similar to what I did for ko_KR.UTF-8.
To get the Talkback ID's go to your mozilla directory and go to mozilla/components/talkback/, there start talkback, it'll give you a list with the IDs. Thank's a lot.
Thank you for your info. about getting talkback ID. The ID for my crash report is TB5373173K. Can I access my report from outside netscape? Or is it restricted?
You cannot access it outside Netscape. =(
Jungshik, can you check bug 128875 ? Is this same problem? How about when you set user_pref("xim.input_style","over-the-spot"); ? I believe this is a bug of Xlib on on-the-spot mode.
Katakai-san, Thank you for your prompt response. Yes, I think this one is a duplicate of 128875 except that setting xim_input.style to 'over-the-spot' doesn't help. I'll add more details there.
> user_pref("xim.input_style","over-the-spot"); Sorry I was wrong. I made a mistake when putting the line above. Anyway, with the above setting, Mozilla doesn't crash. I think this bug is certainly a duplicate of bug 128875 in all aspects. I'm gonna mark it as such if I'm allowed to by bugzilla :-) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 128875 ***
