Description Nakai 2004-05-16 12:53:51 EDT
Description of problem:
GTK_IM_MODULE=iiim is set in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/xinput
but this hold up chance of system administrator to set system's
default in /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules.

In general,
config file setting should be primary, and environment value should
be secondary. System should not set environment value needlessly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change default im setting in /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules 
2. System ignores...
Actual results:
IIIM default settings in xinput

Expected results:
System's default should be /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules

gtk.immodules is purely a cache file that holds the results
of querying the modules on the system. It should never be edited.
Setting the environment variable, is, in my opinion, the right
way to set the default input method.
