[root@localhost scim-chinese-0.4.2]# ./configure

when I do the above, then evil comes
checking for scim >= 0.99.8... Package scim was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `scim.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'scim' found
configure: error: Library requirements (scim >= 0.99.8) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

how to deal with this issue?
thanks

What are you trying to do? Install Chinese language support to a non Chinese (English) system?

If so, open Add/Remove Software and selected 'Languages' then put a checkmark in the Chinese box and install.

After installation open a user Terminal and type (or copy and paste)

mkdir ~/.xinput.d <enter>

ln -s /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim ~/.xinput.d/default <enter>

Logout and back in and you should have Chinese support.

If I've totally misunderstood your problem then ignore what I've written.

But if you installed Chinese language support as I explained it already installed SCIM as well as Chinese fonts. You just need to tell the system to use it as I pointed out with those two commands. Once you do as I said you will find a 'keyboard' icon on your Panel which will allow you to switch between English and Chinese (In my case it's English and Japanese)

ok, thank you very much.
but the topic is why the following came out? and how to deal with it
checking for scim >= 0.99.8... Package scim was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `scim.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'scim' found
configure: error: Library requirements (scim >= 0.99.8) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

If you want to compile SCIM yourself and install it then go for it but you're wasting your time because everything you need to use Chinese is already part of Fedora and all you have to do is use the installation tools provided.

If you just want it to work then follow the instructions I gave. It's very simple and requires no compiling of anything.

As for me, I'm out of this thread. Bye.
