  [Budgie 20.04] Using “ibus-mozc”, two “keyboard” icons may appear in
  the system tray.

Status in budgie-desktop package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu Budgie 20.04 Daily (Japanese environment)

  ## Using “ibus-mozc”, two “keyboard” icons may appear in the system

  This is because an afterimage of the “keyboard” icon remains in the system tray.
  (It appears that the background of the icon is not cleared with the panel color before the icon is displayed.)

  #### usage environment:

  Ubuntu Budgie 20.04 Daily (Japanese environment)

  $ cat /var/log/installer/media-info
  Ubuntu-Budgie 20.04 LTS "Focal Fossa" - Alpha amd64 (20191125)

  $ uname -r

  $ cat /etc/lsb-release
  DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu Focal Fossa (development branch)"

  Input method: ibus-mozc
  (ibus-mozc/focal,now 2.23.2815.102+dfsg-7 amd64)

  (ibus/focal,now 1.5.21-1~exp2ubuntu3 amd64)

  Applet: System tray

  #### Setting:

  $ im-config
  -> I selected “ibus”.

  $ ibus-setup
  -> Check "システムトレイにアイコンを表示する (Display icon in system tray)".

  #### Specifications of the machine used:

  Boot Mode: BIOS

  Architecture in use: 64-bit

  Memory(RAM): 8.3 GB(7.7 GiB) 
  Graphics: Intel Coporetion Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller(rev 09)

  ### Problem phenomenon:

  #### 1: Symptoms occur where the "keyboard" icon was originally located.

  At login, When the “Network Connection” icon appears in the system
  tray, the “Keyboard” icon moves to the left. There is an afterimage at
  the original position, and the “Network Connection” icon and the image
  overlap, but the “Network Connection” icon is not noticeable. So it
  looks like there are two “keyboard” icons.

   Correct  display: OK-2.jpeg

  #### 2: The same phenomenon occurs where the “keyboard” icon has moved.

  The “keyboard” icon usually changes depending on the keyboard input

  - "Keyboard image": (initial display)  -> OK-1.jpeg
  - Orange "あ": (Mozc starting)  -> OK-3.jpeg
  - Blue "A": (Japanese off)  -> OK-4.jpeg
  - Blue "あ": (Japanese on)  -> OK-5.jpeg

  Since all images corresponding to the transparency of the panel
  overlap and the image is filled, it is not useful as a Japanese on /
  off display. By the way, the afterimage of the orange “あ” stands out.

  By the way, the "keyboard" icon is not displayed by default.
   -> Attached image file: KB-icon-off.jpeg

  Japanese is a language that includes both kanji and alphanumeric
  characters. By default, the input mode changes each time you press the
  “Hankaku/Zenkaku” key. There are two input modes: “Japanese on” (Kanji
  / Hiragana / Katakana) and “Japanese off” (alphabet).

  It is set to display the “keyboard” icon to check the change of the keyboard status.
   -> Attached image file :
   OK-4.jpeg - Blue "A": (Japanese off)
   OK-5.jpeg - Blue "あ": (Japanese on)

  Therefore, it is difficult to input Japanese if the “keyboard” icon is not displayed correctly.
   -> Attached image file: NG-5.jpeg

  Perhaps those who use English will not notice this bug. However, it is
  very important for Japanese people.

  #### Workaround:

  1. Log out -> Log in

  It may or may not return to normal.

  2. By separating the input mode on and off into separate keys, you can enter without looking at the indicators.

  Personally, I assigned the input mode “Japanese on” to the “Hiragana”
  key and “Japanese off” to the “Muhenkan” key. I edited the “Custom”
  created in “Key Settings” in “Mozc Settings” (mozc_tool). It's not
  difficult, but it requires a little skill.
