Solaris 10 10/08 Release Notes

Input Method Cannot Be Enabled With Primary Administrator Rights (6475081)

A user who has the Primary Administrator right can not use the input method for specific locales which prevents that user from entering characters normally. The input method status is not displayed in the workspace. No error message is displayed.

Workaround: Add the following lines to the /etc/security/exec_attr file:

Primary Administrator:solaris:cmd:::/usr/bin/csh:uid=0;gid=0
Primary Administrator:solaris:cmd:::/usr/bin/ksh:uid=0;gid=0
Primary Administrator:solaris:cmd:::/usr/bin/sh:uid=0;gid=0

For information about the file format, see the exec_attr(4) man page.
