I just installed Fedora 19 in VirtualBox using an image from virtualboxes.org. It suggests words from a dictionary wherever I type. It's slow and it won't let me type what I want, since it automatically inserts the topmost dictionary suggestion.

How do I turn it off?

Terminal

    I've never seen this behavior, but there does appear to be a predictive spelling package ibus-typing-booster installed perhaps by default. My installation had no config for this, so it does nothing. Try removing it (there appear to be no dependent packages) and see if that fixes it. This is certainly a stab in the dark, though. fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Typing-Booster – SuperMagic Dec 8 '13 at 14:24

So I did a yum remove ibus-typing-booster and killed the ibus-typing-booster process. Voila!
