    having trouble with ibus


    OK, I'm really having trouble with ibus now
    I had ibus and ibus-pinyin installed in my system to input Chinese
    But since my system update today, ibus was upgraded from 1.3.9 to 1.4.0
    I can no longer select Chinese input method with it

    I've been searching for the solution for the rest of the day, and nothing valuable was found
    Please help me~

    I'm using Arch Linux, Here's the system info and ibus version

    [jpli@balance ~]$ uname -a
    Linux balance 3.0-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 30 08:53:25 CEST 2011 x86_64 AMD
    Phenom(tm) 9150e Quad-Core Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

    [jpli@balance ~]$ pacman -Qs ibus
    local/ibus 1.4.0-1
    Next Generation Input Bus for Linux.
    local/ibus-pinyin 1.3.11-2
    The PinYin Engine for IBus Input Framework.
    local/ibus-sunpinyin 2.0.3-1
    The SunPinYin Engine for IBus Input Framework. SunPinYin is a Statistical
    Language Model based pinyin IME by Sun.


    And the desktop environment input method settings:

    [jpli@balance ~]$ env | grep IM
    GTK_IM_MODULE_FILE=/etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules
    QT_IM_MODULE=ibus
    GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus


    desktop environment startup code:


    [jpli@balance ~]$ tail ~/.xinitrc

    export GTK_IM_MODULE_FILE=/etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules
    ibus-daemon --xim -d
    #ibus-daemon -d # This option does not work with libreoffice

    # exec gnome-session
    # exec startkde
    # exec startxfce4
    # ...or the Window Manager of your choice
    exec ck-launch-session fvwm

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Not being familiar with this application, have you tried to uninstall and then reinstall the packages from scratch?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
