Do you need some aid on English reading or primary school math? How
can you read "3+1" as "2"?

ibus-chewing doesn't seem to have a separable setup program.

I'm sorry if I forgot to inform some engines when I care more about
IBus some time ago. For engines prefer a smaller audience of user even
if they know the story behind <setup>, I don't care. It's like
sometimes you cannot ask a H264-only website to support Firefox.

Show me how ibus-setup in git repo launch a
ibus-setup-<engine>.desktop . Show me the code please; I don't see any
new commits after this discussion.

There is actually no need to local patch. Things have been broken for
that long time, anyone except me gave a shit? Show me full links if
any. I'd proudly say I let Ying-Chun what exactly is the issue.

You are more than welcome to implement your fancy desktop idea; I
won't stop you.

I have _zero_ interest to convince you. I've just been annoyed again
by the way some people do things.
