(In reply to Lohan G from comment #5)
I am now able to use
si-wijesekera with ibus-typing-booster. It is somewhat satisfactory. I *can*
type better text with it now, so as you suggested, I am going to use it as a
Good! I’ll try to fix ibus-m17n of course, but that might take some time,
at the moment I have no clue what is going wrong there, it is good that there
is at least some workaround for the moment.
ibus-typing-booster feels a bit different to ibus-m17n, but it also has
some advantages because it remembers words you typed, if you often
type the same stuff, it is often enough to type the first few letters
of a word and then select a suggestion.
But the look and feel is very shaky, wobbly and stressful to the eye
type for longer periods. In my case I spend many hours writing in Sinhala
either with emacs orgmode or LibreOffice. To show the problem, I did some
screen-captures comparing Fedora 29 an older system (Ubuntu 18.04.) When you
type a word in LibreOffice, the word stretches and shrinks in a weird way
with "ං "s in between characters.
I’ll look through your screenshots and videos now and see whether
there is something I could improve.
And in emacs, the word that is being typed is shown inside a dark box
label?), slightly below the actual line.
That is unfortunately *always* the case in emacs when using input methods
like ibus. emacs supports ibus only via XIM and does not support on-the-spot
input style, therefore it cannot show the preedit of such an input method
inline, the preedit is always shown as an extra box. It was never otherwise.
Depending on the desktop used, this box can have a different style and colour,
on Gnome it is a black box with white text.
