Traditional Chinese Solaris User's Guide

How and When htt Is Started

An application that uses the htt input method server to receive Traditional Chinese characters must find htt running before it can receive such input. So if your default locale is the C locale (which does not require htt) and you then change from C to another locale in a single Terminal, for example, you must start htt with a command line like the following:

system% htt & 

With the locale set to zh_TW or zh_TW.BIG5, htt is started automatically when the Traditional Chinese windowing environment starts. In CDE, htt is started from a script, /usr/dt/config/Xsession.d/0020.dtims. This script is executed by Xsession, which runs at every initialization stage upon a user's login from dtlogin. This script ensures that htt is started before other applications in CDE.
