ibus.el README

----------------------------------------------------------------------
0. Introduction
----------------------------------------------------------------------

IBus is a new input method framework under active development which
is designed to overcome the limitations of SCIM.

IBus uses D-Bus protocol for communication between the ibus-daemon
and clients (engines, panel, config tools). Since the components
run in separate processes there is enhanced modularity and stability.
Client processes can be loaded, started and stopped independently.
The input method engines and clients can be written in any language
with a dbus binding.

ibus.el is a IBus client for GNU Emacs. This program allows users
on-the-spot style input with IBus. The input statuses are individually
kept for each buffer, and prefix-keys such as C-x and C-c can be used
even if IBus is active. So you can input various languages fast and
comfortably by using it.

This program is *not* a part of IBus.

i) Common settings

Save this file as ibus.el and byte-compile in a directory that is
listed in load-path, and also save ibus-el-agent somewhere in
your system.

Put the following in your .emacs file:

 (require 'ibus)
 (add-hook 'after-init-hook 'ibus-mode-on)

If ibus.el and ibus-el-agent are saved in different directories,
add a setting to the above as follows:

 (setq ibus-agent-file-name "/PATH/TO/ibus-el-agent")

To disable XIM in Emacs, put the following in ~/.Xresources:

 Emacs*useXIM: false

and restart X session or execute a shell command:

 xrdb ~/.Xresources

ii-a) Using ibus-anthy

To toggle half-width eisu mode by C-j, add the following to .emacs:

 (ibus-define-common-key ?\C-j t)

To use kana input method with jp106 keyboard, you can enable kana
onbiki key as follows:

 (setq ibus-use-kana-onbiki-key t)

If you use thumb shift input method, you have to specify the
simultaneous pressing time as:

 (setq ibus-ibus-simultaneous-pressing-time 0.1)

ii-b) Using ibus-skk

To enter kana mode by C-j, add the following to .emacs:

 (ibus-define-common-key ?\C-j t)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

ii-c) Using ibus-mozc

To toggle half-width eisu mode by C-j, add the following to .emacs:

 (ibus-define-common-key ?\C-j t)

By default, the suggestion window is shown under the start point of
preedit text. To put the window at the cursor position as in the other
applications, add the following to .emacs:

 (setq ibus-prediction-window-position t)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

iii) Example of settings in .emacs

 (require 'ibus)
 ;; Turn on ibus-mode automatically after loading .emacs
 (add-hook 'after-init-hook 'ibus-mode-on)
 ;; Use C-SPC for Set Mark command
 (ibus-define-common-key ?\C-\s nil)
 ;; Use C-/ for Undo command
 (ibus-define-common-key ?\C-/ nil)
 ;; Change cursor color depending on IBus status
 (setq ibus-cursor-color '("red" "blue" "limegreen"))
