Input methods

Input-pad and eekboard provide new on-screen input methods and keyboards. eekboard is so called virtual keyboard, which looks like a physical keyboard but is implemented as software to allow users to input text without access to a physical keyboard.

Users of input-methods upgrading from earlier versions of Fedora may need to install GTK3 versions of their GTK immodules, like ibus-gtk3, in order for input-methods to continue working normally on their desktop.

im-chooser (via imsettings) now allows to fully disable input-methods for users that do not need XIM for X locale compose support: so Unicode input with Control+Shift+u works again in GTK applications by default when not using input-methods like ibus.



For Simplified Chinese, the default desktop font is WenQuanYi ZenHei; for Traditional Chinese, the default desktop font is UMing.

For WenQuanYi ZenHei, a simple tool zenheiset has been introduced, which allows changing its rendering between the default anti-aliased outline and bitmap rendering.
