Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 828764
Request to backport the fix of better immodule fallback
Last modified: 2012-06-10 19:55:44 EDT
Description of problem:
After the upstream fix of https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=603559, setting multiple immodules for fallback works on gtk3 applications. however it breaks gtk2 applications because it doesn't parse :-separated list and tries to find immodules out as is. there are no way to avoid it since they are sharing the same XSETTINGS key. so backporting the fix is only way to go IMHO.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.enable org.gnome.desktop.interface.show-input-method-menu to see what's going on.
2.run any gtk2 applications
3.imsettings-switch -n ibus
4.imsettings-switch -n none
3 or 4 may not take effects when looking at the input method menu.
3 and 4 should take effects immediately.

I've pushed this patch upstream in the gtk-2-24 branch now. I'll get to doing a 2.24.x release hopefully in the next few weeks, and we'll get this fix into F17 and F18 then. Or, if you want this resolved earlier, feel free to put the patch into our Fedora packages and push an update.
