Install OpenOffice, SCIM-Unikey on Fedora


1. Install SCIM-Unikey
Go to http://code.google.com/p/scim-unikey/ and get the newest rpm package, then "su" to root and execute commands below:

# yum install scim scim-libs scim-bridge
# rpm -ivh scim-unikey-0.3.1-1.fc11.i386.rpm
Now go to (I'm using KDE) "Settings -> Input Method" to enable SCIM and select what options you need :)




2. Install OpenOffice.org
# yum groupinstall "Office/Productivity"
Now you can enjoy OpenOffice.Org :D

  1. Dear Nguyen,
    I tried to install in Fedora with cmd "yum install scim scim-libs scim-bridge". After the installation is completed, i go to System | Preference | Input Method, there is no vietnamese input there. Please show me how to config it - many thanks

  3. well, i'm using fedora 12. I have downloaded scim-unikey-0.3.1-1.fc12.i386.rpm. when i tried the cmd "rpm -ivh scim-unikey-0.3.1-1.fc12.i386.rpm" the error show like error: open of scim-unikey-0.3.1-1.fc12.i386.rpm failed: No such file or directory

  4. Just simply, you run the rpm command in the different path so rpm could not find the scim-unikey-0.3.1-1.fc12.i386.rpm to install :D


    If you are using GUI, and downloaded the scim-unikey-0.3.1-1.fc12.i386.rpm, double click on scim-unikey-0.3.1-1.fc12.i386.rpm to install instead of the command "rpm -ivh scim-unikey-0.3.1-1.fc12.i386.rpm" :D

    Good luck :D
