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


I'm not too delighted with Ikuya's patch. It would mean that ibus often
would be started twice. It would also break the role that im-switch
currently has in Ubuntu; please see comment #2 in bug #788033 for a
description of how it works.

Instead I decided to give the idea with delaying the start of ibus that
im-switch does a try. I have prepared two im-switch branches, which
simply delay the ibus start by 10 seconds. They did make a difference
when I tested, and I think those branches would be suitable to upload to
quantal-proposed respective precise-proposed.

Binary builds of the branches are available in my PPA at
https://launchpad.net/~gunnarhj/+archive/misc to facilite testing. It
would be great if you could install the applicable im-switch package and
let us know if it addresses the issue of this bug properly.

P.S. As regards quantal, I encountered another, much more serious issue
when testing: Ibus seems to simply not work! I usually test by opening
gedit and enable ibus, but as soon as I started to type, ibus was
disabled and my typing resulted in latin characters... It would be great
if somebody who actually uses ibus tests it in quantal, and files a bug
if my observation proves to be correct.
