Hi Martin and Mike.
I found a patch by Fedora and it works great.
Strictly, this patch is not fix, but new feature.
So we need to break UI freeze and feature freeze.

Fedora uses this patch for a while. It works great. Do not see any problems. I think ubuntu users will like it.

Alright, Pitti and I don't think this needs an FFe, and it's a slight UIFe that Pitti is fine with.

The code looks fine, Fedora's been running with it for over a year. I ran with it, and it didn't *break* anything. But I had a hard time validating that it did what it was supposed to (not a Chinese or Japanese speaker/typist). I'm going to upload and trust that I'll get feedback if it doesn't work as advertised.

So jibel and ikuya-fruitsbasket [1]: can you please test after I upload and comment?

[1] Nice, Fruits Basket :)

Thank you for your upload.

1. sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade
2. logout
3, login on Guest account (all settings clean)
4. start editor
5. push Hankaku-Zenkaku key (IBus started)
6. push any keys and appear Japanese Hiragana.

It works great.
