I am having a weird issue with
ibus-pinyin. I am running Fedora 28 with the Cinnamon desktop (dnf groupinstall "Cinnamon Desktop"), and I occasionally type Chinese. I installed
ibus-pinyin, a couple of extra i18n fonts, and I put
in my user's
.xprofile file. This works all nice & dandy if I switch my user's desktop to "Chinese" in
Preferences -> Language. I can then switch between Chinese pinyin and English IME input just fine.
However, if I set my user's locale to
ibus daemon doesn't start (or at least there's no applet on the panel), and if I start it manually afterwards, I can switch between
EN/US in the applet, but my input stays on the English IME.
I am not even sure where to start looking ... does anyone have any ideas?
