Last modified: 2013-07-02 21:10:54 EDT
Description of problem:
input method switch (Crtl+Space) is not working with gnome-shell while pressing Alt+F2 and Application Search (Windows key and Search). User is not able to change input method back to English.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select some input with ibus (suppose Punjabi Inscript) (with Ctrl+Space)
2. Alt+F2 or Windows Key
3. try to switch input method
not able to switch input language by pressing Ctrl+Space with using of Alt+F2
user should be able to switch language with Ctrl+Space while pressing Alt+F2 and application search (with Windows Key)
There are known issues:
I decided the Control+space only is fixed in this bug:
Since the IME switcher window cannot grab keyboard events, I disabled to show the switcher UI and just switch prev-next engines in shell entry boxes.
The upstream bugs about preedit visible and commitment won't be fixed in f17 and will be separated bugs.

I think you need to enable ibus-gnome3 with gnome-tweak-tool.

ahh, yes. It works after yum install ibus-gnome3 and enable the Input-Method Status Indicator Extension in gnome-tweak-tool.
