Description Leon Ho 2005-08-11 06:02:16 UTC
Description of problem: When a new engine installed and if the SCIM is already running, the engine list will not show the newly installed engines. Currently it requires user to kill SCIM manually or restart X Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.4.0 How reproducible: everytime Steps to Reproduce: 1. rpm -e scim-chewing 2. run SCIM 3. rpm -Uvh scim-chewing* 4. Look at the engine list Actual results: Chewing is not in the list Expected results: Chewing should be in the list Additional info:

In scim-1.4.2-2 I'm adding a "scim-restart" script which restarts the main scim-launcher process. So if one runs it before step 4 and starts a new application the IME menu should be up to date in the new application.
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-09-08 11:39:53 UTC
Ideally scim could respond to a certain signal and restart itself. Then scim packages in %post could killall -SOMESIGNALNAME and all running scim's on that box would react. It would need to be a little smart, maybe not restarting scim immediately as it may be in use. We can find the 'safe' event oppportunities like maybe the language bar is dismissed, the user chooses "Reload", and possibly other chances. Or maybe this signal idea is just plain crack. We need more opinions.

Created attachment 122439 [details] patch for reload engines I wrote a patch to let CommBackEnd class use newly written reload method to rescan all the engines, and reload engines again. User can activate it through "Reload Configuration" button in panel. I have send this patch to the upsteam. James Su said he had a better way to handle this issue. But I have not got any reply from hi by now.
Comment 4 Qian Shen 2006-01-04 02:25:27 UTC
I had a talk with James Su. He said it would unload IMEs unclearly if uses this reload patch, and would cause some other bugs. He said he has no good solution for this bug.
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2006-02-23 02:26:16 UTC
The above patch was removed in 1.4.4-2 because it induces bug 179807.
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2006-02-23 02:28:05 UTC
scim-restart works fairly well for me fwiw.
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2006-02-23 06:00:06 UTC
The reload-engines patch needs to be made smarter so it only *signals* the user daemon, and the user daemon decides when it is safe to restart itself. A bit more work yes, but this is the only way.
Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2006-03-28 03:05:08 UTC
Upstream is planning to address this issue for scim 2.0. Closing for now.
