Bug Description

It seems fcitx isn't loading correctly at login.
If I click the indicator, the menu doesn't open and all input is blocked for several seconds.
Killing and restarting fcitx seems to work.
I can reproduce this using the Ubuntu MATE 18.04 daily (2018-02-02) live CD.

Reproducible in bionic daily. It's actually worse now, input is blocked entirely and never restored.

I fixed This specific issue with fcitx in fcitx upstream with https://github.com/fcitx/fcitx/commit/20cc3f1eda39cb577ae81791cfd96cc203da4538 .

Though I also reported a potential wider SNI compatibility issue in mate-panel, https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-panel/issues/662 .

The issue still happens on Ubuntu MATE 19.04,
that uses fcitx 1:4.2.9.6-5,
which (debian changelog) says it was released on 30 Aug 2018.

@csslayer, does that include the fix you mentioned?

I found the solution on 18.04 .It's something related with the ui skin。first use keyboard shortcut to active the input method to chinese (or other instead of the default english), click the menu ,select the skin from ubuntu-XXXX to classic or dark。

I confirm it's the option "freedesktop.org tray icon base on dbus" in "addon --->advanced" that cause the problem .Please run fcitx-config-gtk3 to unchecked it .

I have the same issue in Ubuntu 18.04.3.
The option "freedesktop.org tray icon base on dbus" mentioned by firfefoxfans no longer exists.
I found (searching for tray) DBus based new Freedesktop.org tray icon and disabled that.
