Description Akira TAGOH 2020-03-11 11:39:43 UTC
Description of problem:
The cursor position doesn't point to the correct place during pre-editing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make sure if ibus-kkc is installed and enable "Japanese (Kana Kanji)" in the input source. TextView at gtk3-demo for example
3.type Super+space watashinonamaehanakanodesu

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
This seems to be a regression since it works fine on f31. also running gtk apps with GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus also works. dunno what's wrong. so please reassign if it isn't a gtk issue.

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2020-03-13 03:43:13 UTC
It may be good to file an upstream bug too if this is still reproducible in the Beta composes?

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2020-03-17 04:30:46 UTC
I feel this is a potential F32 Blocker bug actually, since it affects normal CJK input badly.

Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2020-03-17 07:49:51 UTC

That upstream change seems affecting this issue. preedit works back to the normal after reverting it. reassigning this back to gtk3.

Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2020-03-18 04:09:19 UTC
I've confirmed that the following change in mutter fixes this issue:

Comment 5 Geoffrey Marr 2020-03-23 19:43:19 UTC
Discussed during the 2020-03-23 blocker review meeting: [0]

The decision to classify this bug as an "AcceptedFreezeException" was made as this is very inconvenient for the default Japanese input method and various other similar ones, and cannot be fixed for live environments with an update.
