This module add support for date and time support. That is, when using pinyin input method, type "sj", "rq" can typing current time or date. But English I don't has this feature or not.
Such, type "sj". Give me 21:01
And type "rq". Give me 2021-06-03
Move tip "SDL_IM_MODULE=fcitx"
Would there be any harm done if the line "SDL_IM_MODULE=fcitx" under Integration would be added to the codeblock above? It would look something like this:
GTK_IM_MODULE=fcitx QT_IM_MODULE=fcitx XMODIFIERS=@im=fcitx SDL_IM_MODULE=fcitx
- As a potential argument against this, the SDL environment variable appears to be categorically different from the others. It's not recognized as an Fcitx variable by
fcitx-diagnose, and doesn't have the same framework-wide support that Qt and GTK have (since apparently this is only supported through vendor modification). Cheers, CodingKoopa (talk) 15:28, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
fcitx5 or fcitx
- The referenced issue of that section is pretty old and no longer applies (as far as I understand the comments on that issue). `fcitx` should be preferred as stated by fcitx's wiki. `fcitx5` most likely works too. It was used during the development of fcitx5 but later compatibility with the old `fcitx` IM module is completed. Some software packages GUI toolkit with `fcitx` IM module but not the newer `fcitx5` one, so setting to `fcitx5` will not work for them (e.g. mindmaster). An exception to this is Telegram Desktop (their official build, not Arch's build), which bundles both `fcitx` and `fcitx5` IM modules but the `fcitx` one is from fcitx4, thus won't work well on Wayland (which fcitx4 doesn't natively support and the input window will be at a wrong position).
