Bug Description


I am using Ubuntu 15.10 with unity-control-centre 15.04.0+15.10.20150923-0ubuntu1.

When I select either of itrans, phonetic or inscript m17n-ibus input method from "Text Entry" menu for Marathi language, keyboard events are not received by web applications. To test this I selected one of the aforementioned input methods, and then used the test web site at http://unixpapa.com/js/testkey.html The test application does not report keypress events when m17n-ibus input method is selected, but selecting other input methods, such as Marathi KaGaPa phonetics (which is not based on ibus), works without a problem and report key events correctly. Is this a known issue with ibus and/or ibus-m17n, and how do I resolve this?

Thanks and kind regards,
