What type of input method are you using? I guess it's something more
elaborate than plain dead key support as I can type accentuated French
characters in Gmail currently.

What do you mean of what type of input method?
I added Persian from Language Support in settings. And I can type Persian in any program (i.e. LibreOffice, Chromium (Telegram app fro Chromium too), gedit etc.).

I have the same issue but I can give some hint - when webapps opening with active english layout it type only in english, if with any other language (farsi, ukrainian etc.) - it type only in this layout.

I have the same issue with Chromium and Chrome browsers. Moreover I can't open any file that has a Persian name. It's so weird. The message is:

/home/USERNAME/SOME_DIRECTORY/????? ??? does not exist.

I believe that it's a "locale" bug. When I changed my country to "Iran" the problem arose and the language was "en_IR" which is absolutely wrong. When I changed it to "System Country (United States of America)" the issue removed and the language is "en_US" which is valid.

So for a quick solution, go to "System Settings" -> "Locale" and set the country to "System Country" and click the "Apply" button. Then log out or restart your system.

No. The fact that the Kubuntu GUI allows you to set invalid language-country combinations has nothing to do with the langpack-locales package.

Besides, the bug reporter has unsubscribed himself. Assuming that possible problems have been fixed.
