Just to be extra clear, this doesn't mean running ibus by default, nor otherwise making https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/798 more of a problem, does it?
- ibus should still only get started for Asian locales and no hotkey should be defined for European languages by default unless the user configures an ibus input method to use, so there should be no UX change on this or regressions compared to F17 --Petersen 03:03, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Q: so can you clarify in our feature page, what features are approved/agreed to include in 3.6 and what features are proposed but not yet approved/agreed?
A: Currently approved patches are gnome-shell and switching engines by g-s-d. Running ibus-daemon and g-c-c is under the review.
Q: which features of the above contains ibus-setup replacement say?
Q: When gnome-settings-daemon is implemented to run ibus-daemon
- if imsettings disables to run ibus-daemon
- im-chooser can be run by users
- if any UIs provide the option to disable ibus-daemon
- if ibus-daemon runs on any locales
- if ibus-daemon runs without ibus engines
- if imsettings needs to be run to export QT_IM_MODULE and XMODIFIERS
A: As of 3.5.4, gnome-settings-daemon will only activate ibus-daemon when needed - ie when the list of active input sources contains input methods requiring IBus. If you don't want ibus-daemon to run, you can just not add any such input sources to the list. Or you can uninstall ibus-daemon. Users can run im-chooser if they want to, but it will probably interfere with the Input Sources UI in the control-center.
