Package: ibus
Version: 1.4.0-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch
User: ubuntu-devel at lists.ubuntu.com

The Ubuntu package of ibus includes a patch to debian/xinput/ibus to check
for ibus support in each version of gtk separately.  The reason for this is
given at <https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ibus/+bug/823202>.
Basically, if both ibus-gtk and ibus-gtk3 are installed (as should be the
case for a while, since the transition to gtk3 is ongoing), the file check
will fail because the glob expands to multiple files.

If only one of ibus-gtk or ibus-gtk3 is installed, I don't know what the
desired behavior would be here, but I think we should fall back to xim in
that case because it's safer.

Thanks for considering the patch.
