Chromium: IBus Input method framework doesn't work

I’ve been acknowledged that the iBus input method framework can’t work in the Chromium snap, I’ve checked the recipe in Snap packages : lp:~chromium-team/chromium-browser/+git/snap-from-source : Git : Chromium Browser and noticed that while it didn’t connect to the desktop-legacy interface, it did connect to the unity7 interface which should grant the access.

On the other hand, the Fcitx input method framework works flawlessly.

I’d like to file a bug on Launchpad, but the existence of bug #1307648 kinda conflicts with it.

Regular bump…

Sorry for the delay @Lin-Buo-Ren. This appears to be a regression that sneaked in when the chromium snap was rebased on core18. I can reproduce the problem, and switching to the stable/core16 channel fixes it. I’m on it.

This appears to be a bug in core18, for which a fix was merged already. I’ll monitor and test the next version of core18 to confirm that this is enough to fix the ibus regression.

Revision 520 of the core18 snap (currently in the beta channel) fixes the problem.
