NAME
gtk-query-immodules-2.0 - Input method module registration utility SYNOPSIS
gtk-query-immodules-2.0 [--update-cache] [module...] DESCRIPTION
gtk-query-immodules-2.0 collects information about loadable input method modules for GTK+ and writes it to the default cache file location, or to stdout. If called without arguments, it looks for modules in the GTK+ input method module path. If called with arguments, it looks for the specified modules. The arguments may be absolute or relative paths. Normally, the output of gtk-query-immodules-2.0 is written to libdir/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodules.cache, where GTK+ looks for it by default. If it is written to some other location, the environment variable GTK_IM_MODULE_FILE can be set to point GTK+ at the file. OPTIONS
--update-cache Write the output to the default cache location instead of stdout ENVIRONMENT
The environment variable GTK_PATH can be used to prepend directories to the input method module path. BUGS
None known yet. [FIXME: source] 10/11/2013 GTK-QUERY-IMMODULE(1)

NAME
gtk-query-immodules-2.0 - create a cache file used by GTK+ to efficiently locate input method modules SYNOPSIS
gtk-query-immodules-2.0 [immodule] [immodule...] DESCRIPTION
gtk-query-immodules-2.0 searches for input method (IM) modules and creates a cache file that will be used by the GTK+ library to effi- ciently locate these files. This program is typically used by developers who are packaging GTK+ software. IM modules can be selected by right-clicking on input fields when running GTK+ programs. An input method is a software component that con- verts key presses into text input that cannot be typed directly. Input methods are normally used to input text for languages that have more characters than can fit on a standard keyboard. Input methods are commonly used for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean text but are also used for other languages such as Thai and Hindi. If any modules are specified on the command line, gtk-query-immodules-2.0 only looks at those particular files. If no modules are specified on the command line, gtk-query-immodules-2.0 scans the user's GTK_PATH environment variable and looks at all IM modules that are specified there. When run, gtk-query-immodules-2.0 creates context information for each module. Each module has one or more contexts. If no IM modules are specified on the command line, the scanned paths are included as a comment in the output. OPTIONS
None. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: immodule Specify the pathname to an IM module. This can be a full pathname, or relative to the current working directory. EXAMPLES
Example 1: Installing a New Input Method Module example% binary_version=`pkg-config --variable=gtk_binary_version gtk-2.0` example% cp myimmodule.so $prefix/lib/gtk-2.0/$binary_version/immodules example% gtk-query-immodules-2.0 > $sysconfdir/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules The values for the $prefix and $sysconfdir variables depend on how GTK+ was installed. In a standard systemwide installation of GTK+, these values are /usr and /etc respectively. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment variables that affect the execution of gtk-query-immodules-2.0: GTK_PATH Specifies what directories contain IM modules. GTK_IM_MODULE Specifies what IM modules to use, in preference to the IM module determined from the locale GTK_IM_MODULE_FILE Specifies the file that lists the IM modules to load. This environment variable overrides the im_module_file speci- fied in the RC files, which in turn overrides the default value in the system gtk.immodules file. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Application exited successfully >0 Application exited with failure FILES
The following files are used by this application: /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodThescommand-line executable for the application. /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodulThe GTK+ input method modules file. ATTRIBUTES
