Additionally, you might want to install input method modules packages such as dasom-gtk-gitAUR for GTK, dasom-qt-gitAUR for Qt applications.

Input method engines

Initial setup

Add the following lines to your desktop start up script files to register the input method modules and support xim programs.

  • Use .xprofile if you are using KDM, GDM, LightDM or SDDM.
  • Use .xinitrc if you are using startx or Slim.
export GTK_IM_MODULE=dasom
export QT_IM_MODULE=dasom
export XMODIFIERS="@im=dasom"

Re-login to make these environment changes effective.

Note: If you are using GNOME, you may need to run the following commands to use dasom:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.keyboard active false
$ gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides "{'Gtk/IMModule':<'dasom'>}"
