ibus icon unresponsive in kde
Last modified: 2012-12-10 05:47:27 EST
Description of problem:
The ibus icon in the system tray icons under kde is not responsive to mouse clicks, left or right. The configuration or current selection is not displayed as it should be.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always for a user that had KDE as their desktop before Fedora 17 and are using their previous kde environment.
I have had it work once on a fresh kde, but if I used the restart command for ibus, then the mouse clicks would not work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 17 with KDE
2. Use KDE as your desktop
3. Try left or right mouse click on the tray icon.
Mouse clicks not responsive. Sometimes there will be a flash of a menu but it immediately goes away.
Should respond appropriately for left and right mouse clicks.
Fowarding to KDE component.
It seems the issue is happened in case the left/right click menu is GTK+.
The workaround is to use the command line:
% ibus --help

I see the same problem in f18 freshly installed from
Happens *always* for me, I also saw this in earlier betas of f18.
I am not able to use Ibus with KDE anymore (first installed Gnome and used ibus, then installed KDE and login):
using following to switch locale
ibus engine m17n:pa:jhelum
ibus engine xkb:us::eng
I provided a fix not to load libgnomekbd on KDE.
