Bug description:
  [ Impact ]

   * Where ibus has been manually uninstalled, budgie desktop will crash
     This is a regression in Jammy due to the SRU patch applied in
     issue #1956240

  [ Test Plan ]

   * Test that ibus-daemon is running
     ps -ef | grep ibus-daemon
     if the process is running then proceed with the test plan
     if the process is not running then install ibus, logout and login
     to test that ibus-daemon is indeed running
   * 1) on login open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) or an application and type a character such as the quote key or the currency key.
   * If the quote key defaults to something else such as the @ key or the currency key defaults to $ then you have a default layout of en_US.
   * Add the keyboard layout applet to your panel
   * from the list provided choose another keyboard layout
   * Repeat test step "1)" above. Check that your chosen keyboard layout is correctly applied.

   * from the proposed repo install the following packages:

     sudo apt update
     sudo apt install budgie-desktop budgie-core libbudgie-plugin0 libbudgie-private0 libbudgietheme0 libraven0 gir1.2-budgie-1.0

   * Logout and login

   * Repeat the above testing again - on login your expected layout should be applied e.g. en_GB if that was your last chosen layout.
   * Lastly purge ibus
     sudo apt purge ibus
   * logout and login
   * check that the first keyboard layout is applied

  [ Where problems could occur ]

   * Primarily the key issue is introducing a stability issue on budgie such as crash on login.
   * Additionally the other issue is introducing a regression in applying keyboard layouts for more people rather than eliminating the issue.
   * As such this fix has been iteratively developed through a multi-month testing regime with multiple community team members

  [ Other Info ]

   * This issue is specifically for Jammy - it backports the same patch
     already applied in lunar/kinetic to Jammy - hence the UB team
     regard this as well tested since it is now more than a month since
     release on 22.10 and no reported issues here on launchpad or on
     our discourse forum.


  Regression noted for the budgie-desktop (jammy) -ubuntu2 upload.

  For installs that have manually decided to uninstall ibus (and
  therefore removed ibus-daemon) - budgie-desktop crashes.

  This is a regression from -ubuntu1~22.04 where such desktop installs
  did not crash
