How reproducible:
Using Fedora 17 with XFCE 4.10, install ibus and add ibus-daemon to startup applications.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a text editor
2. Change input method using keyboard shortcut or by clicking on ibus icon in the top panel
3. Start typing
Actual results:
No Chinese characters, no panel to choose the right character

Expected results:
Chinese characters and panel to choose the character I'm typing

I cannot reproduce your problem.
Did you set ibus with 'im-chooser' command?
Did you install the latest ibus?

# yum install ibus
# rpm -q ibus
Comment 2 manuel.uberti 2012-12-10 05:52:27 EST
im-chooser did the trick. Do I have to add ibus-daemon at startup applications?
Comment 3 manuel.uberti 2012-12-10 06:03:47 EST
Ok, I did a restart of my PC with ibus-daemon still in startup applications and everything is working fine. I was missing that im-chooser command.

Thanks for you kind help.
Comment 4 fujiwara 2012-12-10 19:34:13 EST
It depends on the login locale in the first login when you created your account whether ibus runs or not by default.
And ibus won't run if the initial locale is en_US*
Otherwise you need to enable ibus with im-chooser in the desktops except for gnome-shell.
(gnome-shell uses gnome-control-center instead)
