Description Bill 2013-07-01 14:14:19 EDT
Description of problem:
(note: I had to use windows to submit this bug,)
Most of the simplified Chinese (简体) digits have both a common, everyday, simple, easy to alter, easy to forge character and a more complicated, harder to alter, harder to forge character.  Examples:
0 零 零   (no difference in this case)
1 一 壹
2 二 贰
3 三 叁
4 四 泗
5 五 伍
6 六 陆
7 七 柒
8 八 捌
9 九 玖

The problem...
I can't find the more complicated 简体 character '陆' (6, pinyin spelling "liu" with a 4th tone) in ibus in Linux.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I last updated my Fedora-18 system on Tuesday, June 25, 2013, and I always update everything.  So whatever version of ibus was current that evening, that's what I have.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new file in a terminal window, LibreOffice, etc.
2. Activate ibus.
3. Enter "liu".  Look for the character '陆' in the ibus list (menu) of characters that match the pinyin "liu".

Actual results:
The character is not found.

Expected results:
The character should be found.

Additional info:
* I tried this in Gnome only.
* I tried this with simplified Chinese (简体) only, not traditional Chinese (繁体).
* The other formal simplified Chinese digits are available, only the one for 6 is missing.
* The common simplified Chinese digit for 6 ('六') is available.

Thanks for the report.

Please try to input "i 6" or "lu" to temporally work around this problem.

or try ibus-libpinyin to import "liu 陆" by yourself.

I will investigate it soon.
