Description Gong Han 2008-12-25 12:58:31 UTC
Description of problem:

ibus can't be called in pidgin only if open a QQ protocol chat windows first.

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

iBus 0.1.1.20081023
Pidgin 2.5.2-6.fc10

How reproducible:

In Gnome.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install ibus, ibus-pinyin
2.open pidgin with a QQ account auto started
3.open a chat window of qq(either Qun or buddy is ok), then focus text box.
4.press key shout cuts for calling ibus pinyin input method.


Actual results:

ibus will not be callable in pidgin, but if you open a msn or any other protocol chat window first, it works.

Expected results:

ibus input method will be callable under any chat window start-up sequence.

I also found pidgin has similar problem with SCIM. So I think it is a bug of pidgin.

are you Chinese?

As my experience, this issue doesn't exist in ubuntu 8.04.

but I forget the current version of pidgin in ubuntu LTS.

Chinese:
我在ubuntu下面似乎没有这样的问题。另外,有的时候在xchat这种情况也会发生,只是我还没有找到怎么在xchat上面重现的规律,有的时候有,有的时候没有。 其他的程序目前尚未发现这样的问题。 那么是不是应该向pidgin组报告呢?pidgin 在fc10下面还没有升级到最新的版本,所以不知道他们修复了这个bug没有。

install pidgin-2.5.3-1.fc10.i386
can input Chinese by ibus in QQ chat window.

I'm using pidgin-2.5.4-1.fc10.i386

if the message appears first automatically (popup message, such as Qun message and user offline message), the Chinese input method will not be able to be called.

But, If I open a QQ chat window first manually(without any popup offline messages), I can input Chinese. (they fixed this.)

Comment 5 Warren Togami 2009-01-23 06:41:41 UTC
I am going to guess that this is an ibus bug, especially if SCIM does not have the same problem.  (Does it?)  Reassigning to ibus, especially since there is no way I will be able to solve this myself.

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2009-02-17 03:18:33 UTC
Comment 1 says the problem also exists with scim.
Comment 3 says an earlier version of pidgin is ok with ibus.

Sounds like pidgin upstream should look at this?

Comment 7 Warren Togami 2009-02-17 04:12:32 UTC
There is no way I personally will be useful on this bug.

OK, but do you agree it is a pidgin regression?

Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2009-03-05 06:09:36 UTC
Warren, can you ask upstream about it, please?

Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2009-03-05 06:27:21 UTC
Gong Han, could you also confirm same problem exists with scim?

Comment 11 Warren Togami 2009-03-24 15:18:53 UTC
Are you sure this problem is unique to pidgin?  Sometimes ibus fails to work in specific applications like gnome-terminal or tomboy, while ALT-TAB to another application it works fine.

I haven't installed SCIM, however, sometimes but seldom, the same problem occurs in every program which requires inputting. more over, especially, the issue happens only regularly on pidgin that I had concluded the re-procedures.

Comment 14 Peng Huang 2009-03-25 07:52:34 UTC
Hi Gong Han,

Please try use 'GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus pidgin' to execute pidgin in gnome-terminal. And tell me if it can fix your problem?

Hi Huang Peng,

   The issue is fixed by executing 'GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus pidgin'.

Comment 16 Peng Huang 2009-03-25 11:26:32 UTC
Hi Tagoh-san,

Do you have any idea why pidgin does not choice right im module? Is this bug related im-settings, gtk or in pidgin self?

Comment 17 Akira TAGOH 2009-03-25 12:46:55 UTC
That would be related to gtk+ bug. See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=567124.

Comment 18 Peng Huang 2009-03-26 03:13:54 UTC
Thanks Tagoh-san. Change the component to gtk+

Comment 19 Akira TAGOH 2009-03-26 04:52:45 UTC
correct component.

Comment 20 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 09:08:17 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 21 Akira TAGOH 2009-11-18 09:51:33 UTC
This upstream issue has been fixed and shipped in F-12, but still happens in F-11.

Matthias, can you backport the patch for F-11 updates?
