[Bug 875435] Re: iBus indicator does not show on the panel


Hi, all.

I've just done "apt-get source ibus" and skimmed the code a little bit.

I found that Ubuntu hacked origin IBus code a little bit to support Application indicators.
Origin IBus uses "old school" GtkStatusIcon.

The hacked code would detect whether AppIndicator exists.
So we got race condition as a final result.

A better approach of supporting IBus and other IM framework is using a separate UI.
The UI can be very native to DE concerned and it communicates with the IM framework concerned  through DBus.

I've found four existing examples:
https://github.com/tualatrix/fcitx-gimpanel (DE: Unity, IMF: Fcitx)
https://github.com/fujiwarat/ibus-gjs (DE: GNOME, IMF: IBus)
http://userbase.kde.org/Tutorials/Kimpanel (DE: KDE, IMF: Multiple)
