Description of problem:
This is mostly a heads-up/ common bugs report:
it is already reported upstream and a fix has been submitted for review.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to use ibus in qt5 apps on Fedora 32
ibus does not work at all
ibus input to work
Perhaps the submitted patch could be temporarily applied to F32
until upstream merges and releases an updated version.
Maybe this should be added to F32 Common_Bugs?
I believe a workaround is to use Xorg instead of Wayland, or:
copy (rename) latest $HOME/.config/ibus/bus/*-wayland to $HOME/.config/ibus/bus/*-unix-0
Now the patch is integrated.
Probably I think it's good to back port it to Fedora 32.
*** Bug 1851862 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Agreed, patch integrated and (to be) included in 5.15.1 upstream release.
*** Bug 1877729 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
It still does not work out of the box in Fedora 33.
ibus input works into /usr/lib64/qt5/examples/widgets/widgets/lineedits/lineedits
(From the qt5-qtbase-examples-5.15.2-2.fc33.x86_64 package) only when
starting it with the environment variable QT_IM_MODULE=ibus
but this environment variable is not set by default.
Even then using ibus there is difficult as the lookup table hides the current writing positon.

Which desktop did you use?
I get QT_IM_MODULE=ibus in GNOME Wayland.

It would be a different issue and probably I guess ibus module no longer get the widget position in Wayland and QT applications need to run in Plasma Wayland desktop.
