Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187987
IME should ignore vowel as first character when composing character
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:53:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Through jko's explaination, understand that vowel always combine with consonent
and vowel by itself has no meaning. Currently IME allows user to enter vowel
follow by a consonent, the end result may not be ideal. For example,
const R + vowel H = ê³ (correct)
vowel H + const R = ê³ (correct however, in alternative OS, it is represented as
ã±, 2 distinct chars)
RMR + const R + vowel M =ê·¹ê·¸(correct)
RMR + vowel M + const R =ê·¸ê·¹(incorrect)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.reproduce the examples above in gedit
allowing first char as vowel when composing char can result in the wrong output
start to compose char if the first char is consonent?
Can you file a bug to upstream as well?

So probably this can be closed.
