Description Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-15 13:56:20 EDT
Description of problem:
When I have gcin installed there is a noticeable delay when typing in a terminal window that is really annoying. (That may or may not be a requirement due to how gcin works, so it may not be appropiate to complain about that.) I have my input method preferences set to not enabled, so I expect gcin not to affect my terminal input. The gcin preferences menu didn't seem to have a way to enable or disable it (in English, I could read most of the entries so its possible there was a way to do it).
Uninstalling gcin shutdown the terminal window I had open providing further evidence that it was being used.
While uninstalling it works as a work around, I shouldn't have to uninstall programs in order to not use them. I like to do yum update testing and having a large set of packages installed provides better coverage for that.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gcin
2. Open a terminal and start typing and compare lag to when gcin was uninstalled.
Actual results:

What desktop are you testing on?  What language?

What is the output of imsettings-info and imsettings-list?

Are you able to turn off gcin from im-chooser?
Comment 2 Bruno Wolff III 2008-10-20 12:11:08 EDT
Gnome (though I also have KDE installed and could test stuff there if needed.)
US English (GDM_LANG=en_US.utf8)
[bruno@cerberus ~]$ imsettings-info
No IM is running. please specify the IM name explicitly.
[bruno@cerberus ~]$ imsettings-list
  1: SCIM (recommended)
  2: gcin 
  3: UIM 
I have im-chooser set so as not to have any input method enabled.
ps auxww|grep -i gcin doesn't pick up any running gcin process, but the lag entering keyboard input increased noticeably after installing gcin and logging into to a new desktop session.
