Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 606194
alt+X hotkey stopped working in vte based terminal emulators
Last modified: 2010-06-22 01:15:25 EDT
I use alt+space for toggling ibus input method on/off. It stopped
working on vte based terminal emulators (e.g. gnome-terminal, roxterm)
in ibus 1.3.5-2.
git bisect points to:

| Disable snooper by default.
Setting IBUS_SNOOPER_APPS env variable fixed the problem.
But I believe alt+X hotkey should work by default.
Keyboard SNOOPER is not a normal way to filter key events. It causes some problem applications like browsers. So I disable it by default.
You could use IBUS_SNOOPER_APPS env to enable it for some applications.
IBUS_SNOOPER_APPS="gnome-terminal,roxterm" or ".*term,apps"
IBUS_SNOOPER=true to enable it for all applications.
Thanks for the information on the environment variables. I think they need to be
documented in the ibus README.
