Description Seb L. 2016-03-06 09:20:26 EST
Description of problem:
When using IBus, the numlock LED switches off (only the LED, the function remains active which is very disturbing) once any modifier key such as [shift], [ctrl], etc. is pressed. Have to press numlock key twice to restore LED *and* function.
The LED switches off again after switching to another keyboard layout once a modifier key is pressed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
- alternative 1:
1. Start Fedora 23
2. Ensure that the numlock function is on ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1315087 )
3. Login in the DM (in my case: lightdm)
4. Wait for the WM (in my case: XFCE) to finish loading
5. Press [shift]

- alternative 2:
1. Ensure numlock LED *and* function are both on (double press numlock if needed)
2. Change IBus keyboard layout
3. Press [shift]

Actual results:
Numlock LED switches off, but the numlock function stays on.

Expected results:
Numlock LED *and* function should stay on.

Additional info:
Opening this as a new bug as per requested in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=115909#c44 .

I cannot reproduce your problem when I switch 'xkb:us::eng' and 'xkb:jp::jpn' engines.

Which engines do you switch?
You can check the current IBus engine name with 'ibus engine' command.

Are you reproduce your problem with a new user account instead of the current user account?

Hi, sorry for the delay, I didn't have a workstation available for testing.
I just created a blank account on a Fedora 23/lightdm/XFCE 4 workstation, activated ibus and confirm that I can fully reproduce the bug.

Example of affected engines:

Any swap between any of those engine immediately triggered the bug.

However, upgrading from xorg-x11-server-1.18.3-1.fc23 to xorg-x11-server-1.18.3-2.fc23 *did* solve the issue.

=> bug could be closed, solved with http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=760142
