Bug#983653: task-japanese-gnome-desktop: no Japanese input method available out of the box

Package: task-japanese-gnome-desktop
Version: 3.64
Severity: grave
Tags: bullseye l10n patch
Justification: renders package unusable
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-japanese@lists.debian.org

Dear Maintainer,

On a fresh bullseye installation of Japanese GNOME desktop,
its user cannot type Japanese text out of the box.

A fresh buster installation of Japanese GNOME desktop
dist-upgraded to bullseye is also affected.

Note that a fresh buster installation of Japanese GNOME desktop itself
is not affected.

This is caused by the change in the gnome-shell package (Bug#815050) to add
"Recommends: ibus", which breaks any non-ibus input method framework
especially uim (mainly used by Japanese users) and fcitx (mainly used
by Chinese users),
while reverting the change is perhaps not feasible to western language
users for emoji support.

Adding some Japanese input method to the ibus framework should work
around the problem
for Japanese users. Specifically, adding Recommends: ibus-mozc (or ibus-anthy on
architectures where mozc is not available) to this package should work
around the problem.
The attached patch should apply the work-around.

Thanks in advance,
YOSHINO Yoshihito <yy.y.ja.jp@gmail.com>
