Ubuntu – Ibus incompatible with Tor Browser in 13.10


I have recently updated to 13.10 from 13.04 and noticed a compatibility issue between the new Ibus and the Tor Browser.

Basically, the Tor Browser does not accept any keyboard inputs, while all other programs do. I tested this with the 64 bit versions 2.3.25-11 and 2.3.25-13 and the 32 bit version 2.3.25-13.

According to this thread, quitting ibus "fixes" the problem:


Any ideas on how to fix this?

Best Answer

Type this in a terminal:

ibus exit

Such a simple answer took forever to find. :)
