Full Version: Japanese Kana input problem
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I found 2 problems in keyboard_layout_japanese_gemini.kcm of Gemini Keyboard application APK.
The problems happen on kana input, not roma-ji input.

Problem 1. Incorrect kana character is mapped. 
This is obvious problem.  When I try to enter "め", "ぬ" is inputted.  No way to input "め". This is simple map file problem.
I found following entry in keyboard_layout_japanese_gemini.kcm.

key M {
    label:                              '\u3082'
    base:                               '\u3082'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u30FB'
    fn:                                 '\u306C'
}


'\u306C' is hiragana character "ぬ". This should be '\u3081'.  Code would be following.


key M {
    label:                              '\u3082'
    base:                               '\u3082'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u30FB'
    fn:                                 '\u3081'
}

Problem 2.  Symptom is a bit complicated to explain in English. But this would also be key map issues. I could not translate words with ゛or゜by IME.   My suggestion is change following two character codes.

key O {
    label:                              '\u3089'
    base:                               '\u3089'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u300c'
    fn:                                 '\u3099'
}

key P {
    label:                              '\u305b'
    base:                               '\u305b'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u300d'
    fn:                                 '\u309A'
}

'\u3099' should be '\u309b' and '\u309A' should be '\u309c'.

So that correct key map would be

key O {
    label:                              '\u3089'
    base:                               '\u3089'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u300c'
    fn:                                 '\u309b'
}

key P {
    label:                              '\u305b'
    base:                               '\u305b'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u300d'
    fn:                                 '\u309c'
}


If I need to report this to other method, please let me know.

I setup modified keyboard_layout_japanese_gemini.kcm by myself and confirmed my modification works well.
For problem 2. Japanese IME program ATOK works okay with above modification. Google Japanese IME still has problem. I can explain what happen here, if any Planet Computers developer needs to know this. Please contact me.
