Heya. I love 64 Studio so far, even if updates are few and far between. I deal with a lot of Japanese speakers and writers, and as such, had SCIM on my previous Linux distro. How would I be able to install a working SCIM? I can't install scim-gtk-immodule because it wants to install everything else first. Any help would be appreciated.

Is it is, afaik, one doesn't

Is it is, afaik, one doesn't need scim-gtk2-immodule to be able to bring up the SCIM toolbar. When I used to use Fedora Core, I just needed scim, anthy and scim-anthy. when SCIM starts, I get the keyboard icon in the taskbar, but nothing comes up when I click, and the toolbar isn't there. If I right-click of course, the config menu comes up (SCIM setup, lock windows, etc.). Obviously, Synaptic would tell me if I was missing any dependencies. Not sure what to do.

Make sure you're using Etch packages

Any version of libgtk2 higher than 2.8.0 should be OK if you're using the scim package from Etch: Cheers!

It seems that the version of libgtk2.0-0 that's available isn't a high enough version for scim-gtk2-immodule to install. It wants 1.4.4-8, but 1.4.4-7 is what's there.

I just tried the same, and it wants me to install only 2 packages,
  • scim
  • libscim8c2a
It is possible that I installed the other dependencies with another package I installed already, so it could be ok. Just check the package dependencies in Synaptic. Do you have the correct repositories selected? I have the following active
  • deb etch main contrib non-free
  • deb etch/updates main
  • deb 64studio main
Note that you need to be upgraded to testing to use the above, but if you talk about updates being far between, you are probably on testing allready. If not, follow this instruction: Cheers,
