Package: ibus
Version: 1.5.14-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Right now, just installing ibus and setting it up (im-config, ibus-setup)
results in a broken system (keyboard not working) after logging back out and in.
The problem is that ibus sets the environment variables to make ibus the input
method, but it fails to start ibus-daemon automatically.  I had to manually
configure my desktop environment to start "ibus-daemon -drRx".

The ibus package should ship a .dekstop file in /etc/xdg/autostart/ to fix this,
and to make it harder to break the system using ibus.  Alternatively, maybe
70im-config_launch should also launch the daemon.

Kind regards,

ibus is /usr/bin/ibus
ibus-setup is /usr/bin/ibus-setup
im-config -l =>  ibus xim
