Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499737
no key binding to switch input mode
Last modified: 2009-06-18 11:47:14 EDT
With scim-anthy, there was an option to configure keybindings to rotate the input mode (hiragana, katakana, half-width katakana, latin, wide latin).
ibus-anthy does not appear to have this feature:
This feature is absolutely critical for inputting Japanese text in any sort of reasonable fashion; ibus-anthy is unusable without it.
ibus-anthy does not have configure UI for keybindings, but it has some default keybindings for switching input mode. Please refer to bug 490747, bug 490750, bug 490748 .
BTW, what's the keybinding for the rotating input mode in scim-anthy?
I do not have a Japanese keyboard, so as far as I can tell, I cannot take advantage of the default keybindings for switching input mode.
(I supposed I could try using xmodmap to bind a keysym to Hiragana_Katanaka, but on my laptop, every key is precious.)
scim-anthy's default keybindings for switching input mode are:
Ctrl-,: rotates through (hiragana, katakana, half-width katakana, latin, wide latin)
Ctrl-.: rotates through (hiragana, katakana, latin)
Hi Jens and Tagoh-san,
What's your suggestion? Enable those hotkeys by default?
In ibus-anghy-184.108.40.20690603, we implemented setup UI. I think you could configure those hotkey by self. Please try it.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Fixed in ibus-anthy-220.127.116.1190603-1.fc11
It would be nice to be able to configure the anthy input mode from the IBus notification area icon, though. Right now, the only way I've been able to find to do it is to drag the IBus menu onto a window, switch the input mode for that window to anthy, and then attempt to pick the configuration option off of the menu as IBus rapidly engages and disengages.
