Description Liang Suilong 2012-12-17 11:55:25 EST
Description of problem:
GNOME 3.6 integrated ibus as default input method. But imsettings in Fedora does not start automatically after you log in gnome-shell session. It means that you can not use other input method except ibus by default when you are using gnome-shell.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
1. Install fcitx, scim or gcin. 
2. Turn off ibus integratiion via gsettings
3. Set other input method like fcitx or scim as default via imsettings-switch. 
4. Log out or reboot the machine
5. Log in
6. Can not swtich the status of input method, like fcitx and scim. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install fcitx
2. gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.keyboard active false
3. imsettings-swtich fcitx
4. service gdm restart or reboot the machine
Actual results:
ps aux | grep fcitx
Could not find any process of fcitx. 

imsettings-switch fcitx or imsettings-swtich -n -q -x
Fcitx comes back.

But users need to run imsettings-switch command once in every loginm in order to enable their input method. I think it is not user-friendly. 

Expected results:
I find out /etc/xdg/autostart/imsettings-start.desktop has value AutostartCondition=GNOME3 if-session gnome-fallback. I think it is means that imsettings does autostart except gnome-shell session. 

In my opinon, whether imsettings-switch autostart or not, should not be based on gnome session. When users launch in other DE or gnome-fallback mode, imsettings-switch should start automatically. When users launch in gnome-shell session, xdg autostart configure file should detect the value of org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.keyboard active in gsettings. If the value is true, imsettings-swtich should not autostart. If the value is false, imsettings should be autostart

I can confirms that this issue has been fixed by imsettings-1.5.1.

Now the input method selected by imsettings can be properly triggered even after re-login.

Karma added.
