Has anyone gotten IBUS Asian input to work in KDE UI apps?

This has been an issue that’s been plaguing me for however long and is the biggest reason why I can’t use Plasma(other two reasons are Wayland support adn Kaddressbook bugs and no root access to dolphin)

I installed ibus and ibus-hangul via pamac.

Then, I did all the tweaks in the Arch wiki under the ibus KDE tab

Added

export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus
export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus

To .bashrc Added

export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus

to .xprofile

Added

export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP="gnome"

to .xprofile Then finally added

 export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
 export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus
 export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus

to .xintrc

but to no effect.

The issue can be seen here

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Hello, an ibus user here:

I touched .xprofile only. This is my working setup:

# ~/.xprofile
export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus
export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus
ibus-daemon -drx

Logout and log back in to see if this works. :slight_smile:

Doesn’t work, I can type in Korean in dolphin and konsole but not in the start menu.

Did you mean typing hangul in the search bar like this?

(I don’t speak Korean so just a random typing)

Yes. It does not work on my system
