The same on recently updated Fedora 27

Seems it is introduced by this commit:


Looks like they are moving to the direction where each plugin has its own .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart/ . Maybe we can try copy the one for keyboard to ~/.config/autostart/ , and disable the autostart there, in order to get other IME working?
Comment 3 Robin Lee 2017-12-26 21:05:30 EST
imsettings seems failing to start if 'org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.keyboard' does not exist.
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2017-12-26 21:52:20 EST
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.keyboard is deprecated. see Bug#1520396 to enable imsettings on GNOME.

I cannot figure out how to enable imsettings on GNOME in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1520396
Which is the exact method?

remove /etc/xdg/autostart/org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Keyboard.desktop
Comment 8 Alick Zhao 2017-12-27 00:01:52 EST
(In reply to Akira TAGOH from comment #7)
> remove /etc/xdg/autostart/org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Keyboard.desktop

I wonder if we can support an alternative way without root privilege, like the user has their own ~/.config/autostart/org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Keyboard.desktop where autostart is set to false?
Comment 9 Robin Lee 2017-12-27 00:35:47 EST
And gdm failed to start if /etc/xdg/autostart/org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Keyboard.desktop removed.
Comment 10 Akira TAGOH 2017-12-27 01:33:08 EST
Hmm, better ask upstream for a way to disable ibus safely like they did that by set false to org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.keyboard in the past.
