Considering Alkis' objections, and since it's late in the cycle, I uploaded less aggressive changes to the PPA.

The changes make im-config start ibus in Ubuntu GNOME including GNOME Classic, and leave the im-config behavior unchanged for the other desktops.

@Alkis: If I understand it correctly, the issue, which you reported in bug #1481025, means that it's not possible in GNOME Flashback (and possibly other desktops) to switch easily between Greek typing and e.g. Chinese typing, while it works in e.g. Unity. That's obviously a bug in GNOME Flashback. IMNSHO that bug should be fixed the right way ASAP, so we can drop this workaround. GNOME Flashback screws currently up IBus in other ways too, but it's being worked on: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/759083

It should be possible to switch between any input sources without any hassle.

Anyway, hopefully this latest proposal will make everyone reasonably happy. :)
