Description of problem:
Even when input methods are defined through system dconf keyfile,
input methods do not work without gnome-inital-setup if the default shell is '/bin/sh'
Imagine an input-method class setting,
gnome-initial-setup is disabled and input methods are predefined.
This setting does not work for all users.
To sum up, it works when default shell is '/bin/bash',
but failed when the default shell is '/bin/sh'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. su as root
2. disable gnome-initial-setup
3. Define input method in system dconf db:
a. Edit /etc/dconf/db/local.d/04-inputsource with following content:
b. Update system dconf db
4. create a test user that use /bin/sh
useradd -m --shell /bin/sh testuser
5. Re-login as testuser through gdm
6. Open gnome-terminal or any gtk application with an input area.
7. Switch to ibus-kkc and start typing
Still type in english.
Can type Japanese
1. Set the default shell to /bin/bash
2. Specify gtk-im-module in dconf keyfile, like append following at /etc/dconf/db/local.d/04-inputsource
I think it is better to focus on glib2-fam than dconf (as Takao also mentioned RHEL8 ibus is mainly using gsettings.)
Are you able to describe the defect without dconf?
Are you saying the customer is deploying settings to users using dconf files/commands?
