Thread: IBus not working.

  1. #1

    IBus not working.

    IBus doesn't show up. I can use only Preferences window for Keyboard Input Methods.
    How to check what is wrong with my IBus?
    Reboots are not helping. It is not even appearing on system bar, so how to fix it?

    Conditions:
    - System: Ubuntu 11.10 / 64bit / AMD

    Once I update python on Ubuntu, so I don't want to make any more mistakes like that.
    Please, leave an instruction how to safely update iBus to a newer version.

    Re: IBus not working.

    first step:
    you might want to purge the ibus* packages, then reinstall them and see if then it work or not

    second step:
    if the above tweak have failed, then you can download the required packages from:
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ibus

    and install with : sudo dpkg -i thatpackagenamei_want_2_install

    1.
    ~$ sudo apt-get purge ibus

    2.
    ~$ sudo apt-get install ibus ibus-m17n m17n-db m17n-contrib ibus-gtk

    RESULT:
    The same - not working (only Preferences window for Keyboard Input Methods appears)

    Re: IBus not working.

    did it install correctly?

    and a tip: when completely uninstalling a package provide a * at the end of the package
    this * means all, so the purge command will remove all files installed under the name of the package

    i think an easier way would be to complete removal and install of the package may solve your problem so repeat the steps provided by dino99
