It may take you a little more time replying but it saves time for
those reading your questions.  Remember it is you asking for help so
you should do everything you can to make life easier for those you are
asking for help (who are volunteers remember).

So you have lost the email I sent 1 hour before you posted the reply above?
In the threaded view it should be in the thread a couple of emails up.
Here it is again.

Also if that is the version of ibus then I deduce you are running
Ubuntu 14.10, whereas the new ibus is for 14.04, so it won't help
anyway.  I don't know, but I suspect it may not be back ported for
14.10 as that will be superseded in a few months anyway.

I am glad something useful has been accomplished :)
