IBus 1.6

Summary

IBus 1.6 will have the features of XKB prefix language icons on the panel in KDE 5 and support $HOME/.XCompose file in non-GNOME desktops.

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 23
  • Last updated: 2015-06-12
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

Plasma 5 (KDE) no longer support GtkStatusIcon and IBus provides the different icons between Plasma and other desktops. The current IBus shows a fixed IBus icon for any XKB layouts in Plasma desktop but IBus shows the XKB language prefix names on the icon in other desktops likes "EN" for "us" layout, "FR" for "fr" layout. IBus 1.6 will show the prefix names on the icon in Plasma 5 too.

The current IBus supports the compose tables of en_US, fi_FI and pt_BR and only and have the hard-coded tables in itself. IBus 1.6 will load /usr/share/X11/locale/$LOCALE/Compose with the current session locale dynamically and also load $HOME/.XCompose file for the customization.

Benefit to Fedora

XKB prefix icons are useful to distinguish XKB layouts when users switch IBus XKB engines. Some users requeste to support .XCompose file.

Scope

  • Proposal owners:
  1. Implement XKB prefix in IBus panel for Plasma 5.
  2. Implement to load compose tables in libibus.so
  • Other developers: N/A
  • Release engineering: N/A
  • Policies and guidelines: N/A
  • Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)

Upgrade/compatibility impact

If any users don't wish to load .XCompose file, the file needs to be renamed.

How To Test

  1. Log into Plasma 5 desktop
  2. Run ibus-daemon with im-chooser
  3. Run ibus-setup and load some XKB layout engines
  4. Enable a XKB engine


  1. Log into fi_FI.UTF-8 locale in non-GNOME desktop
  2. Run ibus-dameon with im-chooser
  3. Enable "fi" layout engine and fi_FI compose file is loaded
  4. Customize .XCompose file
  5. Restart ibus-daemon

User Experience

XKB prefix language names will be shown on the KDE panel. $HOME/.XCompose file can be used.
