Did you install ibus-qt? Or use XIM for qt4 applications?
Comment 2 DemetrisK 2009-11-24 00:26:45 EST
Sorry for the late answer.
ibus-qt is not installed. So, XIM is used.
Comment 3 Peng Huang 2009-11-24 00:43:30 EST
XIM has some limitations. It can not be fixed easily. Please use ibus-qt.
Comment 4 DemetrisK 2009-11-24 07:09:14 EST
Ok. I wasn't aware than ibus-qt fixed this. Wouldn't it be better if ibus-qt was the default?
