I found a workaround.
Killing ibus-daemon, it works fine.
Comment 2 Raina Otoni 2011-11-20 05:37:07 EST
My environment is "Japanese" and JP106 keyboard.

It seems openarena need the 3D accelerator but my VM has a problem with Fedora 16.
I would need time to get the stable VM also openarena is too big 300 MB for me.
It would be nice if I could try another light weight app.
Comment 4 fujiwara 2012-05-08 05:46:06 EDT
I cannot run openarena which asks 3D accelerator but I can run gnome-shell which needs 3D accelerator too.
I'm not sure about the configuration about openarena.
ibus owns Control+space and if you'd like to change it, 'ibus-setup' command provides the customization.

Also you could check the latest ibus:
# yum install ibus
Comment 5 fujiwara 2012-05-09 23:04:56 EDT
OK, now I can use openarena and I'm also able to use Esc key to show the menu.
Probably I think you need to use the latest ibus.
Comment 6 Raina Otoni 2012-05-12 06:17:43 EDT
Sorry about this late reply.
It works properly with latest ibus (ibus-1.4.1-2.fc16.i686).
