Bug Description

needs to be rewritten for ibus 1.5.

We would like to land ibus 1.5 in Saucy really soon but we don't want to break the Unity build. You can get ibus 1.5 from

ibus 1.5 uses gsettings, not gconf. And the default keyboard shortcut to switch input methods has switched to Super+Space using switch-input-source I believe (but you'll need to have gnome-settings-daemon from the PPA installed for that)

So a little update, the overall problem is ibus 1.5 is always on. So when you are typing in english its still on :(. Sadly we depend on knowing when ibus was being enabled/disabled. Another thing is we are moving from gconf -> gsettings. So nux will have to be updated as well.

Good news is we can get the tests passing soon, I just need to manually enter the expected results in the pinyin/anthy and things should be good on our end. There will be some refactoring needed in nux/unity though as we no longer get the signals enable/disabled so we can't tell if the IM is active or not. This means we don't know when we will be getting preedit or not.

I've attached a branch that'll make the AP tests pass for now (at lease locally it does), but still need some changes in unity/nux so made a new bug: 1204210
