[Bug 1307648] Re: chromium-browser does not accept keyboard input with iBus


I have this issue in the current Chrome 40.0.2214.115 (Official Build).
Ubuntu 14.10 fully update with kernel 3.16.0-30-generic. IBus version

And I have had it for quite a while with different versions of google-

ibus restart 
solves the problem temporarily.

When this happens other programs are NOT affected. I can still type in
firefox, another chrome beta (that I also have), and everywhere else, as
for as I can tell.

I suspect that it would happen in google-chrome-beta as well, if I used
it as much as google-chrome-stable, but I haven't tested it. It seems to
happen out of the blue.

For me it doesn't solve the problem restarting chrome.

  chromium-browser does not accept keyboard input with iBus

Status in chromium-browser package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  To reproduce install chromium 34 from proposed with pepperflash. And
  find a site that you input some text into like indeed.com or some
  others. Then you hit the keys on the keyboard but no text is seen

  I expected the text to be entering into chroumium like it is on any
  other browser. And for the text to be entered into the browser and
  transfered ot the webpage I am submitting it to.

  Instead it did not show up and indeed.com thought I did not enter anything even though I pressed several keys on my keyboard.
