Shortcut key for Chinese/English input switch is not configurable
Last modified: 2013-05-01 23:21:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently the default shortcut key to switch between Chinese and English input in libpinyin is SHIFT. There's no way to assign another key in configuration panel.
On other OSs there are Chinese input method using aother key such as Ctrl to switch between Chinese/English. For the users who have been using those input method will probably need an option to config the shortcut key.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select (汉语)(Intelligent Pinyin) as a Input Source in g-c-c Language & Region module
2. Click the Configuration button on the bottom right side.
3. Play around the configuration panel.
There isn't an option to config the Chinese/English switch key SHIFT
There should be option to allow user to assign other key besides SHIFT.
After discussed with Tommy He, will provide the option to use SHIFT or CTRL key to switch Chinese/English mode in /usr/libexec/ibus-setup-libpinyin.

Though it is not a big deal, please distinguish between libpinyin  and ibus-libpinyin .
I don't think libpinyin itself has anything to do with switch key.
For ibus-libpinyin, it started as a fork of ibus-pinyin and the problem you mentioned exists in ibus-pinyin for long .

Per your suggestion, correct Component.
Checked with ibus-libpinyin 1.6.91, the option added.
