Patch for ibus/data/ibus.schemas.in none

Description Jens Petersen 2009-07-03 02:25:12 UTC
Description of problem:
ibus should really support IME-based trigger hotkeys like Windows.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run ibus in F11
2. ibus-setup -> hotkeys
Actual results:
Too many hotkeys defined for all for CIJK

Expected results:
Only hotkeys for IMEs in use to be available.
Eg Japanese user should only have Alt-` and Hankaku_Zenkaku
defined by default, not other keys like Ctrl-Space and
Korean hotkeys, etc.

Additional info:
With this change we could also drop defining a global
hotkey by default which would be ibus more acceptable
as a desktop default in the longer term.

Created attachment 367410 [details]
Patch for ibus/data/ibus.schemas.in

E.g. the attached patch can define the behavior with .po file.

msgid "[Control+space]"
msgstr "[Control+space,Zenkaku_Hankaku,Alt+Zenkaku_Hankaku]"

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2010-06-30 05:29:24 UTC
That would be locale specific but may be an improvement.

Comment 3 fujiwara 2010-07-28 08:13:46 UTC
Hmm.., new EngineDescription2:

Probably integrating this patch would be no problem but we need to consider if we use ibus_engine_desc_new2()

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Today I noticed I mistook the feature of the patch.
The feature is to enable an engine(likes next engine) but not take on/off the engine.

We may need the similar implementation for trigger keys.

Currently I'm working on variable ibus_engine_desc_new2() with ibus maintainers.

Once the implementation is done, we could add any features by engines.

Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2011-05-19 05:59:04 UTC
May be good to survey how other distros handle this.

Alternatives might include global hotkey + optional locale based hotkey.

Comment 9 fujiwara 2011-06-03 08:37:14 UTC
Thinking about this again, probably it depends on how the definition of Ctrl+Space we think.

If we think Control + Space to switch prev-next engines, actually almost the implementation would be done while I would see a bug.
However we will need the another definition table of the keyboard hotkeys besides ibus engines. E.g. assign Zenkaku_Hankaku on jp keyboard as one hotkey.

If we think Control + Space to switch on-off engines, probably we need a new implementation in IBusEngineDesc.

Comment 10 fujiwara 2011-09-01 09:53:24 UTC
The new Control + Space is integrated in f16.
