support IME-based hotkeys
Last modified: 2011-09-01 05:53:24 EDT
Description of problem:
ibus should really support IME-based trigger hotkeys like Windows.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run ibus in F11
2. ibus-setup -> hotkeys
Too many hotkeys defined for all for CIJK
Only hotkeys for IMEs in use to be available.
Eg Japanese user should only have Alt-` and Hankaku_Zenkaku
defined by default, not other keys like Ctrl-Space and
Korean hotkeys, etc.
With this change we could also drop defining a global
hotkey by default which would be ibus more acceptable
as a desktop default in the longer term.
Created attachment 367410 [details]
Patch for ibus/data/ibus.schemas.in
E.g. the attached patch can define the behavior with .po file.
That would be locale specific but may be an improvement.
Hmm.., new EngineDescription2:
Probably integrating this patch would be no problem but we need to consider if we use ibus_engine_desc_new2()
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

> Hmm.., new EngineDescription2:
Today I noticed I mistook the feature of the patch.
The feature is to enable an engine(likes next engine) but not take on/off the engine.
We may need the similar implementation for trigger keys.
Currently I'm working on variable ibus_engine_desc_new2() with ibus maintainers.
Once the implementation is done, we could add any features by engines.

*** Bug 674728 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
May be good to survey how other distros handle this.
Alternatives might include global hotkey + optional locale based hotkey.
Thinking about this again, probably it depends on how the definition of Ctrl+Space we think.
If we think Control + Space to switch prev-next engines, actually almost the implementation would be done while I would see a bug.
However we will need the another definition table of the keyboard hotkeys besides ibus engines. E.g. assign Zenkaku_Hankaku on jp keyboard as one hotkey.
If we think Control + Space to switch on-off engines, probably we need a new implementation in IBusEngineDesc.
The new Control + Space is integrated in f16.
