Description of problem:
"ibus-font-setting" for gnome is not a part of the Fedora RPM for ibus. because of this, the user cannot control the font used to display the menu of characters matching the entered pinyin. This in turn leads to those characters being too small to some users to recognize, distinguish, and select the characters consisting of a larger number of strokes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.8.0?
Ideally, one should check appropriate directories for the presence of appropriate files. But I don't have the information for this approach.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In gnome, open a new vi text file or LibreOffice document.
2. Activate ibus.
3. Enter the pinyin for a characters that consists of a lot of strokes. Examples include the second character of the names of Anhui, Xizang, and Xinjiang provinces. Note the size of the characters, and that they are not clear and crisp.
4. Abort the text file or document.
5. Try to find a way of changing the font used by ibus to display characters matching entered pinyin.
I could not find a way of getting ibus to use a bigger font.
There should be a way of choosing a bigger font.
I'm actually asking for two things:
1. "ibus-font-setting" for gnome in Fedora should be a part of the appropriate Fedora RPMs.
2. When I patch Fedora using "dnf upgrade", "ibus-font-setting" for Fedora gnome should be included in what can be patched by that command.
This bugzilla was suggested during a private e-mail conversation with Peng Wu.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.
See bug 1424963 :-)
The gnome-shell-extension-ibus-font rpm is in Fedora now.
