Description Takehiko Abe 2010-06-21 01:12:40 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.
Comment 1 Peng Huang 2010-06-21 20:28:22 EDT
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.
For example:
IBUS_SNOOPER_APPS="gnome-terminal,roxterm" or ".*term,apps"
or use
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.
