After running in the terminal
ibus exit, it successfully exited in the terminal.
It was interfering with a program where it did not allow typing in that program. Or rather maybe the program was interfering with iBus.
Regardless, now that the use of the program is done,
ibus restart was entered into the terminal to reactivate it, but now the only thing that comes out is
Can't connect to iBus.
The same thing happens for other functional commands of
ibus in the terminal.
Grateful for any feedback for how to turn
ibus back on and off at will.
