Description Parag Nemade 2009-05-20 03:33:04 EDT
Description of problem:
iBus should be enabled by default for en-US. However, there has to be an option to enable it by default. iBus should be installed by default irrespective of package selection during Anaconda installation, since it's really important for non-english users, just like fonts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ibus-1.1.0.20090508-3.fc11.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F11 in English locale
2. try to use iBus using ctrl+space
3.
  
Actual results:
no iBus installed with English locale

Expected results:
should install iBus with English locale.

I think it is controlled by imchooser or imsetting.
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2009-05-25 04:30:27 EDT
What's the justification to enable IM by default for even English locale? I'm afraid the result of the test event still looks to me like a rare case though. and how about the footprint?

This is hard to decide to go in our team. you better get more agreements from community.

As this is request from Ankit, I would like to hear from Ankit on comment #2.

Yeah, that's definitely better. I never intended to file a bug initially when I put my suggestion in the iBus test page.

Tagoh, what would be the best place to discuss this?

fedora-desktop-list?
fedora-devel-list?
fedora-i18n-list?
fedora-trans-list?


Thanks!
Ankit

devel would be better place but someone in other lists may be interested. so Cc'ing would be good IMHO.
