Cannot bring up preferences screen for Intelligent PinYin
Last modified: 2013-10-17 21:01:20 EDT
Description of problem: Clicking on "Preferences" for Intelligent PinYin or Intelligent Bopomofo does not popup a dialog box
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select ibus as the input method
2. Add Chinese - Intelligent Pinyin as an input method
3. Highlight the method and click on "Preferences"
Actual results: Nothing happens
Expected results: A "Preferences" dialog box should pop up to configure the input method.
This is with KDE as the DM.
I cannot reproduce your problem.
Would you attach the screenshot in #3 of the reproducible steps?
I'm not sure about KDE apps but 'gnome-screenshot -i' is available to take the screenshot.

This is what is expected. F19 system.
FWIW, selecting Japanese and Preferences does bring up a Preferences dialog.

Oops, you hide the ibus-setup dialog by pinyin dialog.
Could you attached the screenshot in f20 again? which is failed to open pinyin dialog.
I'd like to see what is focused on ibus-setup but I don't need to see the pinyin dialog in the screenshot.
I cannot reproduce your problem in f20 KDE.
Do you use the latest ibus and ibus-libpinyin?
% rpm -q ibus ibus-libpinyin
OK, Comment #4 shows the result.
Please ignore my previous comment.
FWIW, I was not running ibus-libpinyin-1.6.91-4.fc20.x86_64. I have since downloaded and installed it from koji and the problem still exists for me.
Right Comment #4 is a snapshot from a working F19 system after "Preferences" is clicked.

Japanese works as expected
Do you see any warnings when you run 'ibus-setup' on konsole?
Also are you able to launch pinyin setup when you run '/usr/libexec/ibus-setup-libpinyin pinyin' on konsole?
[egreshko@localhost ~]$ /usr/libexec/ibus-setup-libpinyin pinyin
Traceback (most recent call last):

The workaround is to install pyxdg.
Now ibus does not require pyxdg.
So ibus-libpinyin needs to depend on pyxdg or GLib gir:
Transferring to ibus-libpinyin.
Patch for ibus-libpinyin to use GLib:
ibus-libpinyin-1.6.91-5.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
ibus-libpinyin-1.6.91-5.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
FYI, verified fix.
