KDE keyboard input impossible with ibus enabled and qt updated to 4.8.4-18
Last modified: 2014-02-06 10:55:03 EST
Description of problem: After updating to qt-4.8.4-17.fc19.x86_64 data entry via keyboard is impossible with ibus enabled
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): qt-4.8.4-17.fc19.x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F19-B-RC4 KDE Desktop from DVD
2. Enable the ibus input method. Everything works fine
3. Update all packages except for qt*
4. Everything still works fine.
5. Do "yum update qt* and the following get updated....
6. Log Out and Login
7. Unable to type into konsole or any app.
Also, with the latest version of qt installed the clipboard icon and volume icon fail to appear on the systray.
Let's nominate this as a final blocker, it's pretty showstopper-y for people who rely on ibus input.
I was able to reproduce this in KVM, Fedora 19 Beta RC4 x86_64.
Comment #1 sounds like kded4 is crashing.
Other side effects of qt-4.8.4-18 upgrade I noticed:
* (confirming comment #1) many systray apps not appearing (klipper, kmix in particular), or with blank icon (ktp presence applet)
* ktp account manager is empty (prior to 4.8.4-17, I had several accounts configured and working)
As for kded4, I see it running, but apparently no longer running correctly.
'kquitapp kded' makes systray stuff show again (classic mode), and manually re-running kded4 makes systray displays most things now. ktp is still empty.
I think we have enough evidence to pull the 4.8.4-18 update pending further scrutiny.

Discussed at 2013-05-30 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-05-30/f19final-blocker-review-1.1.2013-05-30-16.02.log.txt . Accepted as a blocker per criterion "All elements of the default panel (or equivalent) configuration in all release-blocking desktops must function correctly in common use" for KDE users who rely on ibus input.
Thanks for withdrawing the update; just read blocker status as meaning 'please don't push this again until it's fixed' :)
The kwalletmanager system tray icon is also affected by this bug (it's completely missing like the mixer and klipper icons). Downgrading to qt-4.8.4-17.fc19.x86_64 fixed it.
qt-4.8.4-19.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
