after upgrade to fedora 35, an annoying problem bothers me. I first find in gedit app when input some chinese character, then press space key,no space show, but the column number on the gedit status bar increase, once I switch to type english , the space will show normally.
at first, I think it may be gedit’s problem, however,after some trial, most gnome apps cannot show space after chinese character,like Calender, searchbox in overview, gnome web’s top seach box, etc. but firefox ,liberoffice,telegram，vscode… all work well
what may cause this problem?
Updates : because I was upgrade to 35 from 34, maybe something breaks in the process. So I just recently do a fresh install of fedora 35 in VirtualBox , and get below result:
if system default language set to chinese, everything is ok, the above phenomenon doesn’t happen，I can type space after chinese character in getdit app , serchbox in the overview and other offical gnome apps.
once I set system default language to english, this is my current config of my laptop, things get worse, I cannot type space after chinese character, space will not show, sometimes space will show but it will disappear if you continue to type chinese. it’s not only probelm of gedit ,many other apps also occurs this problem. the searchbox of most apps will come across this problem , like serchbox in the overview and setting, search box of Gpaste, searchbox of nautilus, seachbox of gnome web, searchbox of Geary mail , etc. in geary mail app, when write a mail, the To region and Subject region will not show space after chinese character, but the content region can input normally, in gnome calendar, I want to create a title for event ,space also will not show after chinese character. things get some different with the gnome todo app , I even cannot input chinese when create new task though there were many chinese tasks I create when my laptop is on fedora 34，certainly, there are apps that work well, like firefox, liberoffice, vscode ,telegram.
in one word, most problematic apps is gnome official, I am wondering what changes fedora 35 have in comparison of fedora 34, because I didn’t stuck on this problem when use fedora 34.
