Slack doesn't support CJKV text input (IBus)


Currently Slack doesn’t support input CJKV text via IBus, I’ve submitted a ticket and is waiting for the response but still, want to have a forum topic here just in case anyone has the same issue.

Refer to the following for more technical info:

slack 3.4.0 doesn’t work too.

Please also considering to add fcitx (input method framework) support.

Thanks a lot



On Slack 4.0.1, this problem still exist, please consider add CJKV language support.
