ibus-skk -- a Japanese SKK input engine for IBus

* What's it?

ibus-skk is an implementation of the SKK (Simple Kana-Kanji) input
method on the IBus input method framework.  Since SKK is quite
different from other Japanese input methods, if you haven't heard of
it, please consult the following Web pages before complaining about
the differences:

* How to install

$ sudo apt-get install libibus-dev skkdic
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr # --libdir=/usr/lib64
$ make
$ sudo make install

* Configuration

There is a GUI setup tool to customize ibus-skk.  It can be started
from the command line by "ibus-setup-m17n", or from the language

For complex settings, such as romaji-to-kana conversion table, you can
use configuration file located at ~/.config/ibus-skk.json.  Use
ibus-skk.json.example as a template.

* Thumb shift keyboard support

Since the version 1.3.4, ibus-skk experimentally supports thumb shift
typing method (aka NICOLA).  To use this, turn on the GConf key
"/desktop/ibus/engine/SKK/use_nicola" with gconf-editor.

See the following blog entry for detail:

* How to report bugs

Use the issue trackers on either GitHub, Red Hat Bugzilla, or Debian BTS:;dist=unstable

If you can write Python, it would be helpful to add some failure test
cases in engine/ and to attach the diff to the bug reports.
