After installing Fedora 18 Gnome Desktop, I tried to use ibus and ibus-hangul for Korean.

I ran im-chooser and select ibus, but I got a following error pop-up :

"Failed to switch input Method"

    Current desktop isn't targeted by Input Method."

I clicked "Log Out" and logged in again, but ibus didn't work at all. I could not toggle between English and Korean.

By the way, Fodora 17 had no problem with ibus and ibus-hangul. Something quite broke in ibus in Fedora 18.

Same problems, same error messages which I did not have with Fedora 16, my previous version.

Well, I've learned that Gnome 3.6 does not support external ibus. It has integrated ibus.

In the Region & Language setting I've added Korean(Hangul) input source, and assigned Ctrl+Space to the next input source switching shortcut, I can now switch between Korean and English.

By the way, the switching response is very slow; it takes at least a half second.
