[Pkg-ime-devel] Bug#611190: ibus-qt4: Lost of dead keys when ibus installed

Package: ibus-qt4
Version: 1.3.1-1
Severity: normal

When ibus is installed, dead keys stop working in Qt/KDE applications,
whenever ibus is active or not. This happens on my two computers, both
having ibus-qt4 installed.

Initially I installed ibus, ibus-qt4 and ibus-pinyin. The pinyin method
works like a charm but whether ibus is activated or not, dead keys stop
being dead anymore. That is, when I enter ^ and then e it dispalys ^e.
I'm using a bépo layout (sort of french dvorak). There is some report of
similar problem upstream [1] but it seems to be the reverse: KDE
applications working but a few non Qt/KDE applications causing problems.

Then I tried installing ibus-tables, ibus-xkbc and ibus-compose but it
just provide a way to get the accentued letters without using deadkeys
which is not what I'm looking for.

Best regards.
