Bug Description

Binary package hint: ibus-anthy

On Lucid beta:

edit:
This only affects input method "anthy (m17n)", "Anthy" works as expected.

Using the Language Support tool, I have activated I-bus, and use Anthy as its backend for inputting Japanese. Converting from hiragana to kanji works as expected, but converting from hiragana to katakana, full-width latin, and half-width latin does not work. This was possible in Karmic and earlier (and any Japanese IME) by hitting F7, F8, F9, and F10 when a string of hiragana was input, but they do not respond at all now.

After some searching and trying various configurations, I noticed that there are two ways to use Anthy from within I-Bus. For Japanese I have a choice of four I-Bus backends:

Anthy
anthy (m17n)
trycode (m17n)
tcode (m17n)

I accidentally picked the second one, which although it uses Anthy for the conversion, doesn't seem to provide any of the other functionality needed to input Japanese. The first entry "Anthy", does work as expected, including the function key conversion.

I'm not sure why the second option is even present.

summary: - Can't use function keys to convert from hiragana to katakana and wide
- latin

I'm also affected by that bug, shouldn't the m17n anthy be removed ? what are the other japanese input method used for ? In my case only the 'anthy' (alone) is working.

Having the same problem on maverick. What's worse is that I don't have "Anthy" as an option. :(

In Precise, I can't even convert Hiragana characters to Kanji or any other in anthy (m17n).
