IBM would like to contribute X11 default visual support for IM status
window patch to OpenJDK project.
Java's Native IM status window is not displayed even if it's there.
Because of this issue, user cannot get proper visual feedback during key
We found this issue on Tiger VNC.
Java may pick up unexpected visual for Java's Native IM status window
when Xserver supports multiple visual.
X11 default visual can be changed by FORCEDEFVIS environment variable,
but it's not easy to find out default visual id.
I'd like contribute following 2 files:
(Change X11 visual setting)
(Support 13 point X11 misc fonts (like k14 font for Japanese), since the
fonts may defined for unscaled fonts.)
webrev files are in
I appreciate any feedback please, and how I would go about obtaining a
sponsor and contributor?
