Description

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.
