Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484642
ibus doesn't enable a default engine for a new user
Last modified: 2013-07-02 20:50:54 EDT
Description of problem:
After install a Language (pa_IN/Punjabi), when I tried to input Punjabi (press Ctrl-Space), ibus open Setup. But not enable default language layouts.
Scim has this feature in old release. in Desktop, scim shows all Punjabi layouts, while
using Punjabi installation and a Default layout (Inscript for Punjabi) selected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login in new language with new user
2. ctrl-space (to input something) in any editor (or anywhere)
ibus asked for setup, but not enabled layout by default for language
expecting default language layout enabled by default (as scim was doing)

How about enable all installed engines, if user does not custom it?
I think that is too many - by default we install engines for all CIJK.
I would prefer initializing with just engines for the desktop locale.
I agree with Jens, If all engines are installed, then also I only like to use One language in which I used to log-in (or max 2 as user). If I need more languages, then I can add later, but default I would like to select login language only (which is same behaviour SCIM has in old fedora release).
This feature has been implemented in upstream. And wait for next release.
Currently implementation is ibus will enable all engines belong to current locale, and those engines will be ordered by rank.
The new release has been built
