Package: ibus
Version: 1.3.7-1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream l10n

log in to the laptop ( through ssh. 
$ ssh penguin at

Running google-chrome or gnome-terminal or xfce4-terminal fails to type 
Korean using the ibus.

Only English input is enabled. 

I installed ibus both machines. It works fine in the local host machines.

This is serious bug for bilingual users who use English and other language.

I came up with exact same bug report about it from Fedora bug list. 
I haven't look into it yet.

I'll post this bug on Korean linux user forum. 
I might check other Korean/English Input program how they handles it 
over ssh remote client.
