Bug Description

Binary package hint: language-selector

As of Karmic, gnome-language-selector no longer installs an IME when adding Japanese language support.

When I installed Japanese support, despite having "Input methods" ticked, an IME was not installed. I had to manually install scim and scim-anthy. In previous versions of Ubuntu, this step is handled automatically.

According to the dependency list of language-support-input-ja, the ibus-anthy package should be installed. Can you please verify if that is the case?

Sorry for the mistake. ibus-anthy is indeed installed. However, a Japanese input method is not immediately available.
Launchpad is throwing an error when I attempt to edit the bug description, so I'll provide an updated description here:

When I installed Japanese support, ibus was not configured with a Japanese input method. Post-install, I had to manually add one.

In previous versions of Ubuntu when language-selector installs scim-anthy, a Japanese input method is automatically configured. The switch to ibus-anthy has introduced an extra step in configuration of a Japanese input method.

OK, so the request is for a better ibus configuration handling. Marking this to be done in Lucid+1.
