Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 869584
ibus menu in kde panel does not work, disappears immediately
Last modified: 2012-12-25 23:52:35 EST
I tested this on Fedora-18-Beta-TC6-x86_64-netinst.iso
- default install of Fedora-18-Beta-TC6-x86_64-netinst.iso in Japanese in qemu
- log in into gnome shell
- Install KDE with:
sudo yum install "@KDE Plasma Workspaces"
- quit gnome session (e.g. execute "gnome-session-quit")
- in gdm select KDE and log in again
- Look at the panel, there is the ibus icon showing a keyboard and a globe
- click on the ibus icon
Usually nothing happens. When one tries often the ibus menu pops up
sometimes but disappears again immediately. The user has no chance
to select anything in the ibus menu.
Sometimes, if I click on the ibus icon and keep the mouse pressed, the
ibus menu pops up and stays as long as I neither release the mouse
button nor move the mouse. But even then it is not possible to select
anything in the menu because trying to move the mouse from the ibus
item to the menu makes the menu disappear again.
Other icons in the panel, for example the icon showing scissors
(klipper) pop up menus just fine and these menus are usable.
Only the ibus icon seems to have this problem.
ibus menu should pop up and one should be able to select something there.

as Fedora 18 is yet not release, so keep this bug open.
ibus is not working at all in KDE as far comment https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=867484#c1
this need to move
I don't see why this would be a kde-workspace issue. The faulty applet is a gtk3 applet, all the KDE ones are working.
Hmm, I'm not sure if all of gtk3 applets is affected. at least the status icon from empathy works on KDE.
Easily reproduced in F18 Beta.
Proposing as an F18 Blocker, based on:
18. All elements of the default panel (or equivalent) configuration in all release-blocking desktops must function correctly in common use
ibus applet appears by default in DVD install of KDE for Asian languages.

I'm not sure why leftover from previous session/different desktop should be considered as default panel element.
I'm not quite sure I understand the issue here. Is ibus supposed to show up in KDE or is this just an issue with gtk components from the gnome install not working quite right with KDE? Does the issue show up with an install of just KDE w/o GNOME?
guess we need blocker for the theme bug actually.

It is not a leftover - ibus is the default input method system for all desktops.

Yes for all Asian users.

Sorry my comment too terse, I see.
It seems calling gkbd_configuration_get() causes an error that cannot close /usr/lib64/gio/modules/libgsettingsgconfbackend.so .
libgnomekbd was implemented not to crash it on GNOME 3.4 but now it's not used in GNOME 3.6.
Now the feature needs to be disabled.
Here is the suggested fix.

Well, I think we should really be defaulting to kimpanel rather than ibus-gtk3 in KDE Plasma sessions! It really sucks that we still don't have that set up out of the box. But of course that doesn't mean that ibus-gtk3 shouldn't work.
ibus-188.8.131.5221109-8.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
ibus-184.108.40.20621109-8.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Discussed at 2012-12-10 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-bugzappers/2012-12-10/f18final-blocker-review-3.2012-12-10-17.13.log.txt . As we understand it, this bug breaks default CJK input for a KDE install from DVD, as ibus-gtk3 is the default at present. Accepted as a blocker on that basis, per criterion "All elements of the default panel (or equivalent) configuration in all release-blocking desktops must function correctly in common use" in the case of a CJK install from DVD.
