Created attachment 39424 [details] A session file for 3.3 that supports chinese input Added a session file I have on my system, so that users who has selected chinese for their environment will be able to use xcin. It's far from a good script, but it works.
Comment 2 Gregorio Guidi (RETIRED) 2004-09-12 02:07:40 UTC
That's because /etc/X11/Sessions is in CONFIG_PROTECT. It could be put in CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK by default, but there are a few users that customize the scripts (even you ;) Dropping the patch number is a good a idea, it is just a pain because a lot of people reference the script in rc.conf, in the XSESSION var, so I think it cannot start before 3.4 BTW: I think the customization for chinese input should be made locally for your system creating a file in /usr/kde/3.3/env (they are sourced at starput.)
Comment 3 J.O. Aho 2004-09-12 07:23:25 UTC
Thats good to hear that the patch number will be removed in the future. I thought that the session script would be treated like any other config file, that you get a chance to select what to do when running etc-update, so you wouldn't automatically loose your custom scripts, by the way I have selected to create my own KDE file (as I want the KDE session to be higher up than Gnome(2)). I'll take a look at that /usr/kde/3.3/env, just one thing that I hate about having the possibility to have more than one version of KDE is that I have to customize at every minor version update, had been nice if some stuff could be stored in a global setting directory, so you don't have to anything after an update, but yes, I know it's nothing that will be done and it's quite off topic here.

Will not be a problem with kde-3.4. Closing.
