Description of problem:
When the StarDict window is active, it's utterly impossible to switch to an input method and type some Chinese words as search keys, no matter by a keyboard combo or the GUI icon in the panel. Back on F10 this has been a problem, but I thought it could be a bug in SCIM, which was the IME I used. Now on F11 we switched to IBus and it's still broken. It seems that IBus works everywhere but in StarDict so I guess it's in StarDict that the culprit is.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use an IME (e.g. IBus)
2. Launch StarDict
3. Try typing some CJK characters in the StarDict query box ;)
Input methods can't be activated.
It should have been ;)
I tested with Pinyin only. I guess it would be the same with others.
Thanks for looking into this problem.
Well, for whatever reason, it works now ;)
