Hi Osamu,

systemd is installed but I didn't do any special setting for it.  I am
not sure what is the problem you are facing with systemd and
gnome-shell 3.8.

For ibus-anthy, I found some issues.  If the experimental version of
ibus-anthy is installed, I cannot activate it at all.  I have added
"Japanese" as an input source from gnome 3.8 "region & language
settings".  But even I choose manually "ja", ibus-anthy is still not

By contrast, if I install the sid version of ibus-anthy, this Japanese
input method is always activated in all applications.  I found
ibus-googlepinyin from sid has the same issue.

I wonder if there is any special setting needed for gnome 3.8?
