Hi Andreas,

scim-hangul, im-switch can help you input korean.

    $ sudo apt-get install scim-hangul im-switch


  $ im-switch -z ko_KR -l

  xinput-ko_KR - status is auto.

  link currently points to scim-hangul

  scim-hangul - priority 45

  scim-hangul_xim - priority 40

  Current `best' version is scim-hangul.


  $ im-switch -s scim-hangul      # then relogin KDE

Default key trigger for scim im switching is Ctrl+Space - Korean
keyboard has dedicated change key at right side of space key(Hangul
key). Shift+Space also prefered style.

Other choice available, nabi(xim, gtk-immodule),

You should want install korean fonts. ttf-baekmuk, ttf-unfonts,

Unfortunately, any im doesn't support transcript rule input both
windows and linux, as I know.

scim-hangul support several keyboard layout. 2bul and some 3bul style.
2bul is national standard. Many korean use 2bul style.

Basically, korean use Engilish(US) keyboard layout. You try with korean
character printed keyboard(If available around you) or hard training
with this, :cool:

(Download image and print! :mrgreen: )

Dubeolsik - Du(two) beol(in scim, bul) sik(it mean style, method).
