I'm not able to make Elementary OS use ibus as a default input method (IM). I have installed ibus but I'm not sure what I have to do further. Why I think it's not used as IM is because I've de-selected the "Share same input method among all applications" and still when I switch the language, it is still switched globally. The other reason why I made this assumption is that the OS doesn't take into account what languages I have added in the ibus-setup settings and still uses whatever is chosen in the default settings.

I know this question has been raised before, but I couldn't find a solution.

  • Have you tried any of the proposed solutions in this question? – Mr Shunz Jan 29 at 16:25
  • Yes but without success. I don't even have that option in the "Universal access" settings. – definera Jan 30 at 13:19
