Hong Kong input methods on Linux

Historically, Hong Kong Linux users have suffered from a very poor input experience with the Cangjie and Quick input methods.

A year and a half ago, we decided to fix that.

In this talk, we will quick present our work, make a demonstration, and ask for user feedback.

Come and help us make sure that everybody in Hong Kong can benefit from Free Software, not just those who write English.

Speakers: Mr Mathieu Bridon (France) and Mr Koala Yeung (Hong Kong).

Koala has suffered from bad Cangjie input methods on Linux for about 10 years, and is enthusiastic about the Linux Desktop.

Mathieu is a long time Fedora contributor from France who fell into Chinese input methods one day, leading to severe and chronic headaches.
