>From F13 up to the F15 DVD installation, the default ibus had the "state of IM
engine off". It was my assumption the update broke this feature. The F-wiki
ibus is not up to date. I have also looked on
http://code.google.com/p/ibus/wiki/News, but I am not sure to understand half
of the changes.

To make the matter worse, my English knowledge is perfectible. "embed preedit
text in application window" make sens as separate words, but it did not as a
feature. I don't recall if this option was available on the ibus on Fedora 13.
I only recall direct input was working out of the box (but with Abiword), and I
was wrongly assuming direct input was the sole alternative. Reading a few times
your comments finally rang the bell.

I am located in Japan and it's a perquisite to write (and learn) Japanese. I
would probably had not noticed anything if the option "embed preedit..." was
turned on by default. Once again, I apologize.

I am relieved to be able to input Japanese again, without anxiety. Thanks to

PS I will update the karma on the bodhi page.
