Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 845956
ibus backward trigger key is not customized in ibus-setup
Last modified: 2012-11-12 21:53:51 EST
Description of problem:
The default key binding to enable/disable ibus is set to <Control>space though, IME switcher window is open with even ctrl+shift+space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
IME switcher window is open
the window should be open as the trigger key is set to ctrl+space
it's not open with ctrl+alt+space say. I guess ibus may ignore shift key here?
The Shift key is assigned as the reverse switching if a modifiers key(Control) is assigned in trigger keys.
I'd like to close this bug.
where is it defined? how to stop this behavior?

I mean it's hard-coded and I'd like to close this bug.
hardcoding the key binding sounds not a good idea. I don't see why you are about to close this without any solutions.

Do you want to disable the Control+Shift+space?
My understanding is, MS-Windows switches input methods with Windows + space and the Windows + Shift +space for the reverse conversion. And I didn't think users need the customization for the shift reverse.
the summary on this bug says it all. whether or not disabling ctrl+shift+space is the side-effects on that complaint. on GNOME 3.6, it's also configurable. why not to have that in ibus?
I confirmed you really need to modify it while I didn't think so.
Probably another dconf key will be added as GNOME does it.

The Ctrl+Space shortcut works like Alt+Tab. The Shift modifier is just for changing the ime switch direction. Allowing users set two complete different shortcuts for ime swich may cause may problems. So I think just using one setting is better.
Sure. if it's the way to go for ibus, I would request to disable that feature entirely. honestly I don't see any useful at all on displaying the switcher window. plus, it breaks usability. that feature considered harmful to me.
Recently I added a dconf key switcher-delay-time:
If the key switcher-delay-time < 0, the IME switcher window is not shown and switches the first two engines only with Ctrl+space and Ctrl+Shift+space.
So I guess your problem might be resolved here without Ctrl+Shift+space customization through VM box problem still exists.
