ibus preference & "No input window" problem

Postby menuhin on Thu Oct 11, 2012 9:22 am

Dear all,

I have install LMDE and then ibus.
However, there is no way I can keep the input method changes that I have made in the preference window of ibus, i.e. I have installed a few input methods/tables and selected a few of those input methods in the preference panel of ibus. After I close the preference panel, and check the preference of ibus again --- all those changes are gone. I tried restarting or totally reinstall ibus and its components but these do not help either.

Whenever, I use an application that has input, such as the simple GEdit or the firefox browser (with the cursor being active at the search box), when I click on the ibus icon, it just says 'No input window'. I changed the preference as described above, and the preference changes are gone.

Please enlighten me, and point me to the solution so that I can use ibus to input in other languages.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Cheers,

TJ

Hi,

I ran into the same problem.

You need to place the following lines in your ~/.bashrc, then re-login.

Code: Select all
export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus

# Need to tell the system where gtk.immodules file is.
export GTK_IM_MODULE_FILE=/usr/lib/gtk-3.0/3.0.0/immodules.cache

# Below is for ibus to recognise Libre Office as a input window.
export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus

ibus-daemon -d -x


Hope this works for you;)
