    I do not know how to start this one but let me just try to give you guys
    a brief on my background -- I am a Newbie in Un*x and AbiWord.

    I am a foreigner living/working in Japan...I am using FreeBSD as my O.S.
    and Abiword as my default Editor in my work.

    I am using Canna as my Kana-Kanji Server and Kinput2 with it...
    I have created a first time...Below is the script...

    /usr/X11R6/bin/kinput2 &
    export XMODIFIERS='@im=kinput2';
    export LANGUAGE=en_US.ISO8859-1;
    export LC_CTYPE=ja_JP.eucJP
    ${1+"$@"} &

    I am using this script (I do not know if it is the correct way)
    launched my applications I need to use in Japanese...

    When I use this script for example to launch Gnumeric...I usually do
    this in kterm...

    I get to input or use kinput2 with Gnumeric, Mozilla Firebird, Mozilla
    Thunderbird...BUT NOT on Abiword...

    Is there anything else I should do to make kinput2 work on Abiword?
    Please...I really need your advice, hints or help...

    Thank you very much in advance...
