I did follow your instructions. It would seem I can key Chinese
everywhere except in OpenOffice. I switched to the Kubuntu desktop and
in that environment OOo no longer crashes when I try to enter Chinese,
but it is also not recognized by SCIM as a valid entry point. I also
tried AbiWord. That too does not accept Chinese. I shall sit tight and
wait for the next iteration of Kubuntu with OOo 2.02, then make all the
trials over again. For production I still must stay on the Windows side.
