Package: ibus
Version: jessie rc1

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
        Select Cangjie3 / Quick3 input method but has no effect, keyboard keys pressed are passing through directly to applications Leafpad / Firefox.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)?
        netinst iso-cd weekly built on 2017-01-23, downloaded from debian website
        Debian Jessie running qemu-kvm 1:2.1+dfsg-12+deb8u6
    KVM hardware:
        1 x IDE CDROM (debian-testing netinst iso-cd)
        1 x 8GB virtio disk (vda)
        1 x virtio network adapter
        QXL display
    Key steps to get error:
        1. Clean install the system, with task select "LXDE desktop", "SSH Server", "System Tools" only
        2. Install ibus as root: apt-get install ibus ibus-table-cangjie3 ibus-table-quick3 fonts-arphic-ukai fonts-arphic-uming
        3. Reboot system
        4. Login LXDE as normal user
        5. Open LXDE desktop menu bar --> Preferences --> iBus Preferences
        6. Activate Cangjie3 and Quick3 input method, Set "Shift-Space" as hotkey, "Show Property Panel" to "Always"
        7. Reboot system
        8. Login LXDE as the same user
        9. Open Leafpad, switch input method to Cangjie3 by hotkey "Shift-Space"
        10. Type alphabet keys (e.g. "mmm")

   * What was the outcome of this action?
        "mmm" show on Leafpad

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
        "?" ("three" show on Leafpad)
