ibus works with xterm, emacs and chromium!
In fact I wrote
in .bashrc as suggested in some threads, but I forgot I was in zsh
Now everything works fine. Thank you very much!
ibus-el doesn't work for ibus 1.5+. As far as i recall, emacs24 works
with ibus1.5 without further configuration like ibus-el.
