[SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Hi,
My environment:
ARCH 6.5.3-arch1-1
DE: Xfce 4.18
WM: Xfwm4

I found some interesting bugs after an upgrade yesterday.
here is my snippet of pacman.log:

[2023-09-13T20:03:52+0800] [PACMAN] Running 'pacman -Syu'
[2023-09-13T20:03:52+0800] [PACMAN] synchronizing package lists

[2023-09-13T20:04:24+0800] [ALPM] upgraded sqlite (3.43.0-1 -> 3.43.1-1)
[2023-09-13T20:04:25+0800] [ALPM] upgraded brave-bin (1:1.57.57-1 -> 1:1.57.64-1)

[2023-09-13T20:04:25+0800] [ALPM] upgraded libwebp (1.3.1-1 -> 1.3.1-2)

After this upgrade, I found that I cannot use FCITX5 in the emacs clicked to open on the desktop (app launcher of xfce)
Known affected apps:
Emacs: cannot activate FCITX5 by ALT+SPACE.
WPS: cannot activate FCITX5 by ALT+SPACE.
Wine WeChat: cannot show Chinese characters.
NOT Affected apps:
Chrome,etc...

BUT, I the emacs or WPS launched by gurun or xfce-appfinder or termimals an activate the FCITX5 as usual.
AND the character display of wine wechat launched by terminals or gurun/xfce-appfinder is normal as usual.

My locale:

LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

and:

$cat /etc/locale.conf 
# This is the fallback locale configuration provided by systemd.
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"

I've run fcitx5-diagnose, and everything seems ok.

Should there be any issue related to locale of xfce4?

Anyone can give me a clue on this issue?
Thank you.

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

on another note, I found :
xls, doc files opened by thunar(launched by clicking launch.desktop) cannot active FCITX5 by SPC+ALT.
xls, doc files opened by Pcmanfm(launched by clicking launch.desktop) cannot active FCITX5 by SPC+ALT.

While:
xls, doc files opened by Pcmanfm(launched by running in gmrun) CAN active FCITX5 by SPC+ALT.

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Please use [code][/code] tags. Edit your post in this regard.

localectl
loginctl session-status
echo $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS

And compare the environments of affected and non-affected processes:

tr '\0' '\n' < /proc/#pid of interesting process here#/environ

Depending on where you do https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Fcitx5#Integration they may only affect specific contexts (notbaly if "where" is your bashrc)

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Thank you for noticing!
I am just an engineer nothing related to computer science or programming.

It's weird that this issue occurred after a mild upgrade. 

Here is more information.

$localectl 
System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8

   X11 Layout: (unset)

#setup fcitx
export GTK_IM_MODULE=fcitx
export QT_IM_MODULE=fcitx
export XMODIFIERS=@im=fcitx
export SDL_IM_MODULE=fcitx

I started an emacs session by clicking the launcher on the desktop, and as expected, when ALT-SPC, it showed: C-SPC is undefined (instead of activating FCITX5 when launched in the terminal).

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Your zshrc (or bashrc) isn't a good place for these environment variables and as you can see, they're not available to the emacs process.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Environment_variables

If you had posted the entire session-status I'd tell you where to put them instead, but typically ~/.profile or ~/.xprofile are good candidates.

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Here is my current session status.
I was an arch user about 10 years ago, and then changed to another system, and back to arch this year, so my configuration files are mostly based on old configs. So I don't have ~/.profile or ~/.xprofile in my ~/.

Everything worked normally before that upgrade, there should be something changed by that upgrade.....

Thank you.

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

export GTK_IM_MODULE=fcitx
export QT_IM_MODULE=fcitx
export XMODIFIERS=@im=fcitx
export SDL_IM_MODULE=fcitx

in your xinitrc.

You could try to downgrade those packages and see which one breaks it, but none of them looks particularily related to fcitx or keyboard shorts (certainly not w/ an isolated impact, otherwise eg. brave might be grabbing the input) so this may just be coincidental (triggered by a restart/reboot after the update?)

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Another interesting finding is :
When I click Chrome on the desktop, the gnome-keyring does not pop out.
When I start xfce-appfinder or gmrun to run Chrome, the gnome-keyring will pop out for the password.

I removed brave-bin and nothing changed.

It seems the xfce session or x session did not read the env variables when starting.

Very tricky and weired issue...

It seems to be an issue caused by not passing the envs to the program starting from an xfce desktop.
Appreciate it if some seasoned users could give me any help on this issue. THX.

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

It would seem that you log into an interactive zsh and from there run startxfce4 or a similar script, /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc and your zshrc would both be relevant.
Yet, something seems to clear the environment for the problematic context, not even "DESKTOP_SESSION" is there.

Let's see what xfce4-session and xfdesktop still got

tr '\0' '\n' < /proc/$(pidof xfce4-session)/environ
tr '\0' '\n' < /proc/$(pidof xfdesktop)/environ

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

So both have the environment nicely in place, it's whatever you actually run when clicking an icon there.
Did you downgrade the other suspected packages to figure it was really that update that broke stuff?

What actually /is/ "launch.desktop" from "launched by clicking launch.desktop"?

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Definition:
Launch.desktop : an iconified shortcut created by the Xfce desktop. I can right-click the Xfce4 desktop, and choose "create launcher...", then input the name, command, icon, etc, to create a launch.desktop.

Launched by clicking the launch.desktop: start the specific program (eg. emacs, chrome-bin, etc) by clicking (or double-clicking, depending on configuration) the iconified shortcut.

It seems all programs starting from the desktop, including thunar(pcmanfm), would not read the proper variables in their proc/environ.
While programs starting from running the command in a console(terminal) could read the proper variables in the proc/environ.
Ref. to the 11# of this thread.

I don't have sufficient and profound knowledge about the arch system, it's a basic judgment from logic.

Thank you.

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Hi ,I just made another update and then rebooted the system, now everything is back to normal.
I need to input the password in gnome-keyring when starting chrome from the desktop.
And the fcitx works in emacs and WPS.
Though weird, it's back to normal. 
If it's not worth investigating the nuance, entropy, and tricky parts of this roll-releasing system, I'll close this topic.
Thank you for all your answers, really appreciate your knowledge, and well understanding of this system, Seth.

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

create a launch.desktop

Probably post that file - your update list doesn't match anything in the OP, so it's more likely been the reboot and you might be facing some race condition.

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

I'd rebooted many times before the prior upgrade, but the problem remained.
Here is the file:

 $cat Emacs.desktop 
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Name=Emacs
Comment=Edit text
Exec=emacs %F
Icon=emacs
Path=
Terminal=false
StartupNotify=true
$cat WPS\ 2019.desktop 
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Name=WPS 2019
Comment=Use WPS Writer to office work.
Exec=/usr/bin/wps %F
Icon=wps-office2019-kprometheus

Terminal=false

Re: [SOLVED] Emacs, WPS launched by xfce4 desktop can't activate FCITX5

Looks unsuspicious.
If this flares up again, "pkill xfdesktop; strace -tt -f -o /tmp/xfdesktop.strace xfdesktop" to strace it and (hopefully) see what's involved when clicking the launch icon.
The only thing that looks even maybe remotely suspicious in your updates is gobject-introspection-runtime, but o/c nothhing there correlates w/ the updates in the OP.
