Scim and Sunbird

Hurray, the pressure is gone…. This morning I gave some presentation about Ubuntu as Desktop at STMIK Amikom Jogjakarta. Not quite good as this is my first time giving a presentation in front of 200 peoples, but overall I gave my best for it. I tell them about Ubuntu, the philosophy behind it, and why Ubuntu is good for a begineer. Oh … another thing is, wow … there are lot of “cutey honey” at Amikom, can’t wait to go there again someday ^^

*no no no … I don’t want to talk about my presentation hihihihi … just wait for the photos (if there any)*

Okay, last Sunday I downloaded Sunbird and tried to make it run .. but it wont runT_T. There always this message appear after few seconds

run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 5097 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

And I’m pretty confident that the same message did appear when I tried to run Firefox 2.0 in this same machine. So I started to think that this must have something to do with one of package installed in my notebook. Well, and after some googling I found out that the SCIM package is currently the single suspect for it. It is currently called everytime I tried to run sunbird. And the big thing is : It also happened on flock, thunderbird, firefox, and also acroread. Okay, being rushed I removed all package that have a SCIM on it (scim-canna, scim-anthy, and (oh how fool I am) skim) … and (again, how fool I am) it crashed my KDE. Oh well, after reinstalling scim and it’s family I found another way to prevent SCIM being loaded on calling sunbird. Just add this line of code after first line on sunbird executable script:

GTK_IM_MODULE=scim-bridge

And here you go, Sunbird is running again. The same thing goes to Firefox 2.0 and Acrobat Reader.

*aahh … stil imagine the master of ceremony* ^^
