Description Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-15 13:56:20 EDT
Description of problem: When I have gcin installed there is a noticeable delay when typing in a terminal window that is really annoying. (That may or may not be a requirement due to how gcin works, so it may not be appropiate to complain about that.) I have my input method preferences set to not enabled, so I expect gcin not to affect my terminal input. The gcin preferences menu didn't seem to have a way to enable or disable it (in English, I could read most of the entries so its possible there was a way to do it). Uninstalling gcin shutdown the terminal window I had open providing further evidence that it was being used. While uninstalling it works as a work around, I shouldn't have to uninstall programs in order to not use them. I like to do yum update testing and having a large set of packages installed provides better coverage for that. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gcin-1.4.2-3.fc10.x86_64 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install gcin 2. Open a terminal and start typing and compare lag to when gcin was uninstalled. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

What desktop are you testing on? What language? What is the output of imsettings-info and imsettings-list? Are you able to turn off gcin from im-chooser?
Comment 2 Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-20 12:11:08 EDT
Gnome (though I also have KDE installed and could test stuff there if needed.) US English (GDM_LANG=en_US.utf8) [bruno@cerberus ~]$ imsettings-info No IM is running. please specify the IM name explicitly. [bruno@cerberus ~]$ imsettings-list 1: SCIM (recommended) 2: gcin 3: UIM I have im-chooser set so as not to have any input method enabled. ps auxww|grep -i gcin doesn't pick up any running gcin process, but the lag entering keyboard input increased noticeably after installing gcin and logging into to a new desktop session.
