Package: ibus
Version: 1.5.3-7
Severity: important

ibus 1.5 have few problems to activate.  (Other than mozc is broken now.)

This is meant to be tracking bug for me to check/record situation.

* ibus setting

>From gnome-control-center (1: in unstable, ibus should be
selectable.  But now no meu entry does not exist there.  Of course
ibus-setup, run from consiole or from right-clicking icon to start
preference, can set ibus.  But this is not supposed to be like this.

* ibus swiching

>From ibus 1.5, SUPER-SPACE should change IM engine.

But currently we need to press SUPPER once befor pressing SUPER-SPACE
together to get expected result.

Both of these can be avoided if GNOME 3.8 with proper patches are

Right now experimental archive is not easy even for me.  But I once
patched gnome-control-center and gnome-settings-daemon to get expected


  gnome-shell: Please do not use --disable-ibus
  closed in experimental

gnome-control-center --> reassigned to gnome-desktop3 
  unable to select keyboard layout from gnome-control center
  closed in experimental
  gnome-settings-daemon: keyboard and CUPS bug fixes

If anyone wish to test, please backport them locally.
