Vietnamese input method - Unikey
I tried to create an account on sfe to add to their wishlist but this site has never send an activation email to me. I went to topicbox, but it seemed this is commercial. I'm not an developer so I don't know what to do. After a while I found this site, fortunately, I could register.
I'm just a normal user that wanted to use OpenIndiana on desktop alongside of Linux. This alternative OS has a working Firefox browser so it's totally possible to use as a daily OS. But I quickly found ibus on OI doesn't have the Unikey method. On Linux, it's usually provided by the package ibus-unikey. I tried with m17n and very soon I found this version of m17n is too old so it doesn't support Vietnamese!
Please consider updating ibus and the corresponding package and adding the Unikey input method. On Linux, I switched to fcitx and fcitx-unikey for a long time but ibus is the default on OI so I just go with ibus. I know how to install LibreOffice but without a Vietnamese input method it's useless for me! Thank you a lot.

thank you for your message :)
Is it this package that would be required?
Yes. More information: ibus can't work with qt5 based apps. On Linux, I switched to fcitx completely but on OI we only have ibus so I just live with ibus. I only want to input Vietnamese on LibreOffice (GTK3) so I think ibus is enough for me :)
p/s: I'm the OP. I found my previous account name sounds too Chinese so I created this new one, definitely more Vietnamese :)
