Since: Version 20220101-133340-7edc5b5a

The functionality described in this section requires version 20220101-133340-7edc5b5a of wezterm, or a more recent version.

Explicitly set the name of the IME server to which wezterm will connect via the XIM protocol when using X11 and use_ime is true.

By default, this option is not set which means that wezterm will consider the value of the XMODIFIERS environment variable.

If for some reason the environment isn't set up correctly, or you want to quickly evaluate a different input method server, then you could update your config to specify it explicitly:

config.xim_im_name = 'fcitx'

will cause wezterm to connect to fcitx regardless of the value of XMODIFIERS.
