Comment 2 fujiwara 2012-04-27 07:02:10 EDT
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.
