ibus Chinese input resets to English every time


I use the iBus Chinese input a lot. Since installing Fedora 15, I have a problem. Every time I renew a page, or change tabs to another webpage, iBus resets itself to English input. When I am studying Chinese, I have a lot of different windows open, dictionary, translator, drawing characters, chinese forum, and more. Actually, just after boot, it doesn't do this, but after a while, I get automatic reset to English input.

I have looked in iBus preferences, but can't find anything to stop the resetting. It is only a matter of Ctrl Space to reset, but why does the program automatically reset to English every time? It did not do that in Fedora 14.

Any tips out there, Chinese users??

Firstly, make sure you have dbus-x11 installed. That was a bug with ibus, though it shouldn't hit anyone who uses Gnome as their desktop.

Is there any chance you're accidentally hitting a key? It is easy to accidentally hit the combination.

(I only use it with Japanese, and not that frequently, so it's quite possible I didn't hit this issue because I don't have it open that much.)

No it is not an accident. I just wrote in Chinese here, then went to another webpage: ibus is then set to English, I have to press Ctrl space to switch to pinyin input.

You might try the iBus mailing list. The devs are Red Hat employees.

Yes, the ibus folks are usually very quick to respond. Thanks for giving us the followup.
