Description Danishka Navin 2010-11-22 11:00:17 UTC
Description of problem:

Once loged-in to Sinhala locale i could use all Sinhala Input methos has been selected except Sayura by default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora 14
2. yum groupinstall sinhala-support
3. log-in to Sinhala locale
4. run ibus-setup
5. check listed input methods under 'Input Method' tab

Actual results:

you can see Sayura input method also listed when you visit 'Select an input method' >  Sinhala; Sinhalese

Expected results:

Sayura input method should available under 'Input Method' tab in ibus-setup by default

Additional info:

as Sayura is the most used phonotic Sinhala input emthod for Sinhala we must fix this ASAP.
Because non-technical people might think Sayura is missing in the Fedora 14 distro.

Comment 1 Pravin Satpute 2010-11-22 11:11:12 UTC
we recently did some fixes for selection all language keymaps by default
deuno, can you update on this one?

since sayura is ibus-engine and not .mim do we need to handle this different way?

Comment 2 Danishka Navin 2010-11-23 06:37:13 UTC
this was not happened in Fedora 11 or 12.

basically if we logged-in to a particular locale we should get all the input-methods related to that locale. 

for example;
Chinese input methods wont show in 'input methods' in ibus-setup if you logged-in to a locale other than Chinese 

that means there is a way of detecting Hindi related/specific input methods.

right now i used to drop following files in order to drop them out from 'Input Methods' from the Sinhala locale.


just deletion of file is enough.

But i don't know how to add Sayura in  to the 'Input Methods' by default.

Also reproduced in Rawhide.

Comment 4 fujiwara 2010-11-24 06:36:51 UTC
You can fix this bug within ibus-sayura.
It seems you don't have rank in /usr/share/ibus/component/sayura.xml .

It's good to have the same rank with ibus-m17n if you'd like to show all engines by default:
% /usr/libexec/ibus-engine-m17n --xml
            <longname>phonetic-dynamic (m17n)</longname>
            <description>Sinhala phonetic dynamic input method:

fujiwara, thanks!

Pravin, appreciate if you could release an update for the ibus-sayura package ASAP

Comment 6 Pravin Satpute 2010-11-25 11:22:44 UTC
after adding rank, for new user using Sinhala, now ibus-sayura is also coming in IME list

scratch build for testing http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2625453

@Danishka please test this one and let me know so i can build it

@Fujiwara after adding rank still it is not coming with 

% /usr/libexec/ibus-engine-m17n --xml

Comment 7 Danishka Navin 2010-11-25 11:32:09 UTC
i have tested by adding rank in to the script
just add entry to the /usr/share/ibus/component/sayura.xml
but no luck. now its ask me to start the ibus deamon.

Pravin, i will check this

Comment 8 fujiwara 2010-11-26 01:00:10 UTC
You could try with a new user account or need to remove some of files in $HOME/.*

Comment 9 Danishka Navin 2010-11-26 09:58:32 UTC
