IBus means Intelligent Input Bus.
It is an open source input framework for Linux/Unix OS.

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

To make IBus work when X is started add the following lines to
~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession:

    export GTK_IM_MODULE="ibus"
    export QT_IM_MODULE="ibus"
    export XMODIFIERS="@im=ibus"
    ${TRUEPREFIX}/bin/ibus-daemon -d -x -r

To use IBus within xterm(1) the character locale needs to be UTF-8.
For example to set it to US English in UTF-8 mode, also add:

    export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8

Finally, to display characters correctly make sure to use a Unicode
(ISO-10646-1) font.

To activate IBus press Ctrl+Space.
For general configuration, including hotkeys:

    $ ${TRUEPREFIX}/bin/ibus-setup

Input methods

The input method for GTK3 is included in the main package.
Additional modules are available in these packages:
    ibus-gtk2 (for GTK2)
    ibus-gtk4 (for GTK4)
