Now, I know there was a Qt4 frontend for ibus, but I guess there isn't one for Qt5 yet? The GTK+ frontend doesn't look very good under KDE. I think I have it set to use Alt+` to switch input methods, and I have Anthy set up on the Input Method tab. I copied the following into ~/.bashrc, because ibus-setup says to:
Code: Select all
# IME and non-roman fonts support # see Sabayon bug #2518 if [ -x "/usr/bin/ibus-setup" ]; then export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus export [email protected]=ibus export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus fi
When I start ibus-setup, it always says the ibus-daemon isn't running, so I hit "Yes" to start it. I try to hit Alt+` to switch to Japanese, and nothing happens. (I did remove the kwin shortcut that was binded to the same key combination so it wouldn't interfere.)
I have a feeling there's a simple solution and that I'm missing something. But I was able to use ibus just fine as recently as Kubuntu 14.10. I don't remember if I used it at all in Kubuntu 15.04, when they switched to Plasma 5 as the default, and I know I didn't set it up in Kubuntu 15.10. So I don't know if I ever got it to work in KDE/Plasma 5.
But right now it's not working. Not in GTK apps, not in Qt apps. The ibus-daemon is running, but it just isn't working.
