Thanks for looking into this.  Our input method story hasn't been
great since freeflying stopped maintaining it in KDE 3 times.  There's
nobody in the Kubuntu team who has good knowledge or need to use it so
it tends to lag.

Ikuya Awashiro you have done the ibus merges in Ubuntu recently, can you comment on bug 854333 ?

Many of the ibus files disappeared from kimpanel ibus so it got merge
into the main plasma-widget-kimpanel package.  I suspect it's not well
maintained upstream.  I haven't got it to work but then I haven't got
ibus gtk to work, it needs im switch to run.  This is also missing from the language selection I added into system settings recently.  

So not a great story, any help appreciated.
