[Pkg-ime-devel] Bug#877312: Compatibility with desktop session or systemd started ibus etc.

Package: im-config
Version: 0.32-1
Severity: wishlist

This is a placeholder bug to discuss how Debian's glue hook code for the
keyboard input method (currently, my humble im-config) should be moving
after reading:


If ibus is started outside of im-config, it may be better to
automatically set im-config to set to "REMOVE".  (I think Ubuntu at one
point in history did so under Unity.)

Since Debian needs to support not only GNOME and KDE but also all
classic DESKTOP environments.  Since I don't have good exposure to what
are involved, I am placing wishlist bug to get this situation tamed via
public discussion.  Also, I am wondering if all wayland based environment
get started after executing /etc/X11/Xsession.d/* ... especially  it's
confusing how dbus etc. work.  Maybe this kind of hook script is not
needed any more.  Maybe we should also place hook code at some other
place to be compatible with the new situation such as wayland.
