Setup not working? #3

It seems ibus-libpinyin always uses default settings, no matter what I do using ibus-setup-libpinyin.

I'm using ibus-libpinyin 1.4.92-1 and libpinyin 0.7.91-1 on Archlinux. I also tried ibus-libpinyin-git.

Maybe this is caused by dconf prefer to use lowercase for key name, while ibus-libpinyin uses uppercase.

Please try work around patch commit id 998401f

998401f does not fix this issue.

I am not familiar with [gd]conf stuff. ps | grep conf gives:

Hope this is helpful.

I will ask my colleague to see whether he can reproduce it on Archlinux.


epico commented Nov 8, 2012

Sorry, I finally find an ArchLinux machine to check this problem.

This problem is caused by newer version of ibus-libpinyin uses ibus_config_get_values instead of ibus_config_get_value.

The dconf will convert all key names to lower case, but ibus-libpinyin uses upper case key names.
In Fedora, we have a patch for ibus to preserve the upper case key names for pinyin, bopomofo, etc.
Please add that patch to ibus.

Hi Epico,
I use Mageia. I am trying to compile and package libpinyin and ibus-libpinyin for it, but still in process. Actually, I have the same problem about setting in ibus-pinyin. I mean the regular pinyin. I guess that it is the same problem. Can I get that patch and documents about how to patch it?


epico commented Nov 9, 2012

Yes, it seems the same problem.
Please ask it on http://code.google.com/p/ibus upstream.
That patch is made by daiki.ueno, iirc.
