Description Changwoo Ryu 2014-10-18 00:44:38 UTC
In GNOME 3.14, the initial default input sources are always XKB based ones, which cannot be used to input CJK scripts. 

For Korean, the default value for org.gnome.desktop.input-sources.sources is "[('xkb', 'kr'), ('xkb', 'us')]".

IIRC in GNOME 3.12, the default was "[('ibus', 'hangul')]" by gnome_get_input_source_by_locale(). This is the preferred default.
Comment 1 Rui Matos 2014-10-22 14:32:16 UTC
Can you explain in more detail how you're getting that configuration? Is this on an empty user account? Do you have gnome-initial-setup installed and does it run?
Comment 2 Changwoo Ryu 2014-10-22 17:36:25 UTC
I got this config on an empty account in my Debian unstable.

Unfortunately there is no gnome-initial-setup package in Debian. So no, I have not installed gnome-initial-setup. Even without it, reasonable default values should be chosen. gnome_get_input_source_by_locale() is the API for that default.
Comment 3 Changwoo Ryu 2015-09-26 21:18:03 UTC
Please note that having gnome-initial-setup is not easy on non-Redhat distributions. gnome-initial-setup is not exactly distribution specific but needs quite modifications to use on non-RedHat distributions. For example, in case of Debian, some setups are already configured in the installer before booting up GDM.
