Thanks. However I was asking about the icon to add input method in 
system settings. Running ibus-setup indeed tells me that the ibus daemon 
is not started (and recommends to eventually add some configuration 
lines in my session configuration file).

Added IM doesn't work neither. Logging out and back in doesn't fix the 

Still the input method selector which I have on another (older as 
opposed to freshly installed) F15 machine doesn't appear.

any clue?
