In "Ubuntu Software" GUI to install and remove software, it says that Ibus-table has propritary license and the source is Ubuntu Bionic Main repository.

But, here, it is mentioned that: "Main is Canonical-supported free and open-source software."

Can anybody clarify this? Also, is it a necessity for the functioning of Ubuntu? Can it be removed?

Ubuntu Software may be wrong with license type.

As you can get the source code of the package it is open-source.

About license see source code repository in upstream (Debian) and real upstream.


It is GNU LGPL software.
