Description Julian Sikorski 2009-05-31 07:11:31 EDT
Description of problem:
After an update to ibus- (hit stable a few days ago), im-chooser is no longer able to start ibus. It still attempts to launch /usr/sbin/ibus, which does not exist any more.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. update ibus to the latest version found in f10 updates
2. go to system → preferences → personal → input method
3. attempt to launch ibus
Actual results:
Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/ibus" (No such file or directory)

Expected results:
ibus starts properly
Comment 1 Yao Wei Tjong 2009-05-31 11:07:21 EDT
I had same problem on x86_64. It appears the file "/usr/bin/ibus" is now missing. Temporary workaround: running "/usr/bin/ibus-setup" as normal user, choose yes to start the "ibus-daemon" when prompted.
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2009-05-31 22:30:29 EDT
Apparently ibus package no longer ships /usr/bin/ibus. I don't know if it's expected thing or unexpected. for workaround, update to XIM_PROGRAM="/usr/bin/ibus-daemon" in /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/ibus.conf.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2009-05-31 23:04:23 EDT
ibus- has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2009-06-02 10:17:39 EDT
ibus- has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 5 Yao Wei Tjong 2009-06-07 04:58:00 EDT
Not very sure whether it is related with the latest package. Before the upgrade I could see quite a few Chinese input methods. After the upgrade to, there are now only two Chinese input methods available (pinyin and chewing). All the other installed input methods are gone. The upgrade solves the im-chooser problem described above though.
