I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 with SCIM 1.4.7.
In Java Applications the "Alt Gr" Key doesn't work, so it's impossible to write [ ] @ {} (at least with a german keyboard layout. Don't know if it effects english layouts, too.) Refering to this bug on launchpad

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/netbeans/+bug/212364

there is a link to patch the problem by editing /etc/profile with a few line and add the current location to /etc/scim/global. Look here:

Hope you can fix this.

    I think this is a Ubuntu specific problem introduced by 20_scim_config.dpatch

    You should easily be able to reconfigure your trigger keys for something that suits you better.

    IOW, I don't assume there is any real bug here.
