focus move is slow with ibus-gnome3
Last modified: 2012-04-11 22:30:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Comparing with/without ibus running with -gnome3 support, the focus move becomes slower.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open two applications
2.switch the focus between them
3.stop ibus and try 2)
the focus move is slower than no ibus running or ibus running without -gnome3.
no delay on the focus move.
Currently the new Control+Space feature is available in f16 or later.
I thought your problem is that ibus sometimes looses Control + Space.
But it seems your problem is that focus move is slow.
Probably I don't understand this bug but I fixed some bugs in ibus-184.108.40.20610419-13.fc16.
So I think it's good to check if this bug is fixed in the latest.
I added ibus-220.127.116.1110419-14.fc16 to resolve gnome-shell compatible issues.
This issue still seems to happens in ibus-18.104.22.16810419-16.fc16.x86_64.
this issue still persists with:
on the sloppy focus mode.
Here issue is as described, but... for non gnome programs like Firefox it's per-field swapping. ie If I go to the search box now I'll have to wait till I get a cursor.
In all cases if I start typing before focus I get the characters typed in the wrong keyboard layout when it does appear. Once focus is there it is the correct layout.
I think I ran into the same bug when trying to debug something else.
I was experiencing slow switching and freezing between terminal tabs when the IBus language gnome-shell extension was enabled. I was able to work around it by disabling the ibus language display extension with gnome tweak-tool.
My input language switching was still enabled, but I wasn't able to see it anymore in the display bar. It was much faster though.
I'm away from my fedora system for the weekend. Can someone else verify if this is the same bug?
