Bug Description

The fcitx can't use extra trigger key to activate input method after using it to inactive.

The maintainer of fcitx say, "Function call fcitx_input_method_activate in unity-settings-daemon is not necessary".
see https://github.com/fcitx/fcitx/issues/203#issuecomment-139189323

I try to commented out all call of fcitx_input_method_activate, then problem solved.

I'm used Ubuntu 15.04.

More context info about fcitx_input_method_activate, it is design to change between the first input method listed in fcitx and the current one used.

Because the real thing the daemon tries to do here is to call fcitx_input_method_set_current_im after it, there is no point to call fcitx_input_method_activate here, probably there is some misunderstanding of fcitx_input_method_activate.

  * Fix shell watch callback not being destroyed. (LP: #1501576)

  * Don't call fcitx_input_method_activate (). It breaks fcitx' "extra
    key for trigger input method" shortcut. (LP: #1494331)
