Projects / gcin


gcin (Gtk Chinese INput application in X) is a Chinese input method server for Big5 Traditional Chinese character sets. It features a GTK user interface. It is a very popular Chinese input method (IM) server in Taiwan, which focuses mainly on Traditional Chinese. Its IM table format is almost the same as xcin, and comes with a conversion program to help xcin users transfer their settings. A GUI interface is used for gcin settings such as your favorite Chinese input table and keyboard layout. It is often straightforward for users to append other input tables not originally included in the release package, or tables used by other IMs such as scim.
