Bug Description

Binary package hint: ibus

When newly install a Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Beta1 and Beta2, choose Chinese, Taiwan, Traditional Chinese at wherever it ask, and finish the installing process. Reboot, install neccesary Language Support components, set the system to use Traditional Chinese by default, and re-login or reboot.
Ibus doesn't have input method for zh_TW users by default, have to manually add it/them to the enable list.

This makes many End-Users think that "Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid doesn't support Traditional Chinese", so they step back and keep waiting for Lucid to "Support" Traditional Chinese.

There're many (and become more and more) End-Users using zh_TW Ubuntu.
As 10.04 is an important release and milestone of Ubuntu, it'd really be better to have Traditional Chinese Input Method enabled by default too.
Do not enable only Simplified Chinese Input Method by default, because zh_TW users Don't Know how to use zh_CN input methods.

summary: - Ibus leak for Traditional Chinese Input Method in newly installed zh_TW
+ Ibus lack for Traditional Chinese Input Method in newly installed zh_TW
env Ubuntu 10.04.

Change to ibus-chewing. The module needs to register itself to ibus in gconf, however this should probably be only done on single-user installations. On multi-user installations, we wouldn't know if all users want to use the IM or prefer different settings.

This issue also affects all other single IM modules for ibus, should we add them all as tasks to this bug?

In the latest 10.10, ibus-chewing is pre-selected for zh_TW locale. This issue can be closed. :-)
