[Pkg-ime-devel] Bug#747375: ibus-daemon does not start - no engine set and has no icon and cannot be run from command line

Package: ibus
Version: 1.5.5-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

ibus does not work and has not worked for a long time. I am a sid user. I have
uninstalled a long while ago and have reinstalled recently. It does not start; there is
no menu, and I cannot even run it from the command line. If I run it in terminal and
type "ibus engine" I receive the following:

(process:17576): IBUS-CRITICAL **: ibus_bus_get_global_engine: assertion 'IBUS_IS_BUS
(bus)' failed No engine is set.

I originally had problems with the ibus-pinyin and the Chinese in ibus-m17n. But I have
not even got to try it yet, as ibus won't start. Thank you.
