I am now using Leap 42.3 with KDE. Recently I installed ibus from the official OpenSUSE repository. The version of ibus being offered in the repository is ibus 1.5.13. This version has a bug: the font size setting does not work, making inputting rather difficult as the font of the candidate characters look very small.
The page https://github.com/ibus/ibus/issues/1856 explains that “The problem happens because GTK 3.20 changed all the CSS node names. ibus needs to replace “GtkLabel” to “label”.” The same page also says that the bug is fixed in ibus 1.5.15.
Is it ok for me to install this rpm in my Leap 42.3 system? Will the installation mess up the dependencies? If it is ok to so do, should I use rpm --install or rpm --upgrade? Are there anything I need to be aware of?
Any help on this is very much appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks a lot for alerting me that my idea of installing the newer version of ibus is not a good idea. Guess I need to give it up for the time being and find out something about this OBS first. Your help is appreciated. Thanks.
