I have been trying for almost a week now to get my keyboard to type Hangeul. I tried searching for answers and applying the ideas, but nothing works. I am quite new to Linux, so there are many things that I don't see as obvious.
I managed to get it done in Ubuntu 10.0.4 under Gnome, but the same K(DE)ubuntu is not playing along. I tried IBus, like in the GDE, but that doesn't do anything. I can't even find IBus to do anything. I tried playing with SCIM, but I don't see any options that lets me chose the keyboard settings I need. Today I tried SKIM, but still not working.
I tried installing extra languages on the system, but as soon as I install Korea, all my menu items in the language preferences turn to Korean, even if I installed another language before Korean. When I try to set English as the default language an update dialogue appears and it keeps on updating seemingly in an endless loop.
I am not Korean and can't use a Korean system, so this is not going to work. Needless to say, with everything being in Korean I can now not make heads or tails of IBus or SCIM or SKIM or even my browser.
Has anyone managed to install a Korean layout on English Kubuntu system?
