An interesting and simple fix, but leaves me wondering. Open and LibreOffice are probably the only applications I have ever used that handle SCIM and Ibus input without problem. It is everything else I have had to tinker with. On the technical side, libreoffice-gtk should be included with LibreOffice. Meaning this fix should not be necessary, but as we all know, reality creates interesting situations. It is good you discovered this tweak.

Now to get really technical. :twisted:
Kanji is not Chinese. It is the Japanese term for Chinese characters, especially those used by the Japanese.

ummm... it's not that I don't believe you, but the clients in question are Taiwanese immigrants. I mentioned the "Kanji" thing to them and they shrugged and said, "Maybe. We all just call it kanji" Bear in mind these were the people who wanted nothing to do with Simplified Chinese....

So I guess I'll keep calling it Kanji ;)

We all just call it kanji
This is probably the reason.

It is easier to use names the locals know. North Americans know sensei, but use the term si-fu and see what happens. North Americans (and Europeans?) know many Japanese terms and apply them to all east Asian languages and cultures.
