I'm not sure if this can be an issue for Hangul users.

Comment 2 Peng Wu 2019-03-22 08:18:44 UTC
Updated ibus-hangul to change default mode to 'hangul' in Fedora rawhide.

Let us see whether it is okay for Hangul users.

Comment 3 fujiwara 2019-03-22 09:17:17 UTC
CC'ing Hangul users.

Fedora rawhide is now modified the default input mode:

I'd ask if Hangul users can accept the change since I think the maintainers set the default to 'latin' with a certain will in ibus-hangul 1.5.1.

Comment 4 Changwoo Ryu 2019-03-24 05:10:42 UTC
Usually Korean users just use ibus-hangul ONLY in GNOME, without XKB based input. (It is because the input source switching in GNOME is quite different with the Korean/English switching that has been used for decades. I tried to modify GNOME to make them compatible as possible but it was not very successful.) In this case, the initial direct EN mode is the expected default.

I understand that for those who use hangul and other language engines and switching between them, "KO default" is preferred. But most Korean users don't use ibus-hangul in that way.

sangu.fedora: Any comments on it?

I think the request would be different from the point of the actual users.

Comment 6 Changwoo Ryu 2019-08-03 06:31:17 UTC
I'm an actual user. :)  As I mentioned before, the preferred settings are different by use-cases. But this issue is about Fedora. In case of fresh Korean-default Fedora installation, AFAIK ibus-hangul will be set as the only input source by gnome-initial-setup. Then Latin (direct EN) is the expected default.

Comment 7 Peng Wu 2019-08-06 09:36:45 UTC
Okay, reverted this change in Fedora rawhide.
