I've been using the Japanese iBus input without any problems but I think it stopped working after the Skype update. Now the iBus simply doesn't work, I can't trigger neither the language panel nor the actual input method while using a Skype window.
Things that I've tried so far that didn't solve it:
1. Installing ibus-qt4 package
2. Adding these lines to the .bashsrc
3. Launching iBus from the Startup Applications with this command
People have reported for these to work but they didn't for me.
I also tried SCIM but it seems to be totally broken for any input in any applications.
Any ideas what I could do to solve this? Thanks.
