Using Ubuntu 15.11. Configuring input using the 'Input Method Configuration' screen. Whenever I change "Extra key for trigger input method" it works for only that session. Once I restart the computer it goes back to the default value of "SHIFT Both" which annoying.

Is there a config file that is overwriting this every time I boot up?


First you can use this command fcitx-configtool to open the fcitx config window,then you can change "Extra key for trigger input method" that you want.

Then you can cd into the fcitx config fold by cd ~/.config/fcitx and use chmod 444 profile to change the permission of the profile to read only ,so that no one can change back to default value.

You can restart you computer to see if it works.
