ibus cannot show the status icon at the session start time in KDE
Last modified: 2011-11-14 01:51:04 EST
Description of problem: KDE 4.7.2 ibus with installed simpliedfied-chinese-support group is broken. Was working fine with Fedora 15.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ibus 1.4.0
select ibus-setup from the menu, and it seems to startup wonky.
If I run it from the command line, it at least displays its icon in the system try. If I run it from the systems settings menu it doesn't display its icon.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login, select input method from KDE menu
2. Starts the input method ibus-setup program.
3. doesn't display its icon in the icon tray. Try using it with pinyin input, and CTRL SPACE works sporactally. Mostly never.)
Should display pinyin characters to pick from when CTRL-SPACE is selected.
KDE 4.7.2 Fedora 16 fresh install.
Installed simplified chinese support group, which is bizarre as it isn't listed in grouplist, but is found in the documentation.
Then installed ibus-pinyin.
Worked fine in Fedora 15.
I don't understand what is your problem.

Which do you mean, you installed ibus-pinyin by manual? or the Fedora installer installed ibus-pinyin with chinese support group?

Can you attach the screenshot in this bugreport?
% gnome-screenshot --delay 10
Do you have ibus-pinyin rpm?
Did you log into the KDE session with zh_CN.UTF-8 locale? You could change the user locale with 'systemsettings' command.
Did you disable 'Customize active input methods' check button in 'Input Method' tab on ibus-setup GUI?

ibus lack of icon in systray
Notice the blank spot next to the scissors...normally should have the ibus icon there.
Can only get it too show up if I exit and start it up from the command line.
OK, I think you cannot show ibus icon when ibus is launched at xdg auto (KDE start time) but you can show the icon when you restart the ibus-daemon.
It's a KDE issue.
