ibus: surrounding text support bug when backspacing
Last modified: 2010-11-23 16:52:30 EST
Description of problem:
When backspacing a syllable using m17n Wijesekera input method, the consonant and vowel modifier components are not being deleted in graphical order. They are being deleted in encoded order.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* ibus and ibus-m17n RPMS from Bug 435880 are required.
Steps to Reproduce:
0) Enable the m17n Wijesekera input method
1) <f><l><d><a> should output කෝ.
2) Press the space bar to commit the buffer.
3) Press the backspace key 4 times.
4) The remaining output should be ෙ .
Fujiwara-san, could you apply this patch:
when you update ibus package in rawhide next time?
The patch should fix this bug.
Please note that the patch disables surrounding-text by default and you will need to add --enable-surrounding-text to autogen.sh.
Integrated the fix into rawhide.
I thought to remove IBUS_CAP_SURROUNDING_TEXT in ibusimcontext->caps by default and add some APIs.
But there are timing problems between gtk client's focus-in and loading bus engineproxy and will need several dbus APIs.
So now I think customizing IBUS_CAP_SURROUNDING_TEXT may not help to reduce the resources.
I will integrate the patch into f14 later.
ibus-1.3.7-14.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.
I tested the F14 RPMs and it fixes the problem.
ibus-1.3.7-14.fc14 has been pushed to the Fedora 14 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update ibus'. You can provide feedback for this update here: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/ibus-1.3.7-14.fc14
ibus-1.3.7-14.fc14 has been pushed to the Fedora 14 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
