In my computer I need keyboard language support for:
- English (US)
Hence the anthy (that I am used from 16.04LTS) is an option for me. Recently I ugraded from Ubuntu 16.04LTS into 18.04.2 LTS using the MATE variant.
Hence I installed
sudo apt-get install ibus ibus-anthy
Also I have configured the iBus to ignore system settings as seen in this answer
And not due to double indicators in my system for input language I want to somehow "disable" the xkb/xinput/whatever powered one and use the iBus as universal language input for Greek, English and Japaneese(anthy) changing with
Shift keyboard stroke.
When I switch between 2 language inputs via Alt+Shift the non iBus one indicates the input language.
The xmodmap layout is configured like that:
$ setxkbmap -query rules: evdev model: pc105 layout: gr,us variant: , options: grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll,grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll
I tried temporary to disable xmodmap language input with:
setxkbmap -layout us
But it seems not only unable to change the language input but to get stick with english too. Also in this situation once I change the language input from iBUS indicator into greek I can use and change language inputs.
Also In this case one temporary "disabled" the xkbmap I get these settings:
rules: evdev model: pc105 layout: us options: grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll,grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll
Thus as far as I understood the xmodmap overrides the iBus and I want to make it stop to do that and let iBus handle any language input. So in order to do that I need to completely disable the options in
setxkbmap so how I can do that?
