[opensuse-ja] Re: [opensuse-m17n] Will 12.1 ship ibus as default input method

Hi mates,

I will Cc this post to -factory and -ja lists in hopes of getting more
feedback.

@users who need to input multi-byte characters

We are now discussing about replacing SCIM with iBus as our default

input method for multi-byte characters.

If you are interested in this topic, please try ibus related packages in
M17N repo and if you find some problems, join the discussion on -m17n
list or comment the feature #308892.

As I commented in the feature #308892, current iBus has much more
advantages than disadvantages compared with SCIM. So I'm also basically
for it.

However, if we set iBus as a default input method, I hope some issues
will be solved until the release of openSUSE 12.1.


- Input problem on Flash site

Please go to
http://bugzilla-attachments.mozilla.gr.jp/attachment.cgi?id=2275
and try whether you can input characters there.

# related bug report:
# http://code.google.com/p/ibus/issues/detail?id=1113

One of the Japanese users tweeted that he could input characters with
openSUSE 12.1 M1 + M17N/iBus 1.3.9 + (anthy or mozc) + Firefox 5.0 beta,
but I myself haven't tested it yet.

At least, we need a workaround for this problem.


- Input-pad

Currently we don't have a good input-pad for inputting special
characters or marks which can be integrated to iBus (SCIM has
scim-input-pad for this purpose).

I've found Input Pad project
http://code.google.com/p/input-pad/
and tried to build packages for openSUSE on OBS, but I haven't succeeded
building them yet after openSUSE 11.4 (yep, I could use them at least on
my openSUSE 11.3) and can't figure out the cause of the failure.

I know who need it should work on it, but your help will be so much
appreciated. ;-)

Reading the changelog of ibus package which is recently submitted to
M17N repo by Ray, the priority is now set to 40. I think the score is
reasonable and once we find a problem with this priority in the future,
we will be able to change it anytime, won't we?

Best,
