Other notes:
I've successfully built it for el7,f22,23,24, and rawhide and have setup a copr for it at https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/vwbusguy/ibus-coptic/

$ rpmlint ../SRPMS/ibus-table-coptic-0.1-3.fc23.src.rpm

These are related - I commented out the Source0 URL to my upstream git tag in lieu of the properly renamed zip supplied.

I don't expect to run ibus-daemon in %post.
It's not verified to run ibus-daemon before the desktop installation is completed.
Comment 5 Mike FABIAN 2016-08-10 04:59:34 EDT
Hi Scott, maybe it would be also useful (or even better?) to add an input method to m17n-db?

If an input method exists in /usr/share/m17n/*.mim, it could also be used in ibus-typing booster.
Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2016-08-10 12:26:39 EDT
1) Drop following

Requires:       google-noto-sans-coptic-fonts
Obsoletes:      ibus-coptic < 0.1-3

we don't add requirement on fonts and I see there was no such ibus-coptic package existed on Fedora

2) Following is now optional and can be removed

3) Please use macros as mentioned here -> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:RPMMacros

/usr/share => %{_datadir}  

4) I see other similar packages are not using %post section which is added here for this package. Also explained in comment#4 here

Please update the package and provide new SPEC and SRPM link by bumping release number and adding related changelog entry.
Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2016-08-12 03:01:50 EDT
Just seconding Mike's suggestion: it would be better to get your keymap into m17n-db.  This is more portable than ibus-table which is primarily for Chinese.

http://www.nongnu.org/m17n/ (though currently inaccessible for me)
Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2016-10-18 06:20:02 EDT
ping vwbusguy, can you reply for above comments?
Comment 9 Mike FABIAN 2016-11-07 11:47 EST
Created attachment 1218128 [details]

For use with ibus-m17n, the attached file can be used.

You will need to install

    Any suitable Unicode font


$ mkdir -p ~/.m17n.d/
$ cp cop-greek-kbd.mim ~/.m17n.d/
$ ibus restart

Now ibus should list the newly added input method:

$ ibus  list-engine | grep  -i cop
  m17n:cop:greek-kbd - greek-kbd (m17n)

Now add the input method  using the gnome-control-center
or, on non-Gnome desktops, ibus-setup.
