Title: Replace scim with IBUS

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Mingxi Wu (mingxi_wu)

SCIM upstream is almost dead. We should not keep an unmaintained
software in openSUSE.
IBUS (, a new developed input method is
very active and full functionality, and other distributions like Ubuntu
( and Fedora
already had done this. 
We have some contributors done the IBUS packaging at OBS .
Everything is OK on my openSUSE 11.2 box except fail to enable it in a
gnomesu window, but this is not a problem as other distributions don't
have this bug.

+ ibus in openSUSE by default would be great. Also, ibus seems to solve
+ many problems that occur with others IME under Linux (such as no dead
+ keys for no-US keyboard), and is far better integrated under KDE4,
+ thanks to kimpanel.
+ I am using the packages of swyear and everything is working without
+ problem.
