How To Test

ibus restart

  1. Log into Plasma wayland desktop session and confirm ibus-daemon is running
  2. Open konsole
  3. Run ibus restart
  4. ibus-daemon is restarted

Panel menu

  1. Log into Plasma wayland desktop session and confirm ibus-daemon is running
  2. Click on the IBus panel menu
  3. "Preference" menu item is available

User Experience

ibus restart command has been useful for users to reload the IBus configurations in non-Plasma Wayland desktop sessions and it will work in Plasma Wayland too. Currently IBus can toggle the activate menu and context menu with clicking the mouse middle button on the panel icon but most users won't have to use the middle clicking after the "Preferences" menu item is shown in the activate menu.


IBus will use D-Bus methods of Plamsa Wayland to reload the on-screen keyboard configuration or show the panel menu.
