I just upgraded to Trisquel 8, and some of my input methods in ibus are
not working.

Dvorak, and it's labelled that way, but it is in fact not UK Dvorak; it

The input method for Russian fails.  @nj yt [jhjij

The input method for Esperanto, "h-fundamente (m17n)" does work.
 Esperanto: Laŭ Ludoviko Zamenhof, freŝa ĉeĥa manĝaĵo bongustas kun

The input method for Yiddish, "yivo (m17n)", does work.  ייִדיש: אױ װײ,

I went into Control Centre > Keyboard > Layouts.  Hebrew now works, but
it only lets me add four input methods, and Super+Space for ibus (for
Yiddish, Chinese, etc.) are no longer working.

I found a solution.

I unchecked "Use system keyboard layout" under Advanced in UBus

I checked "Show icon on system tray" under General.

In Keyboard Preferences, under Layouts, I removed all keyboards except
my main one.

Now, all input methods are accessible with Super+Space, and (as an
improvement from Trisquel 7) each icon for each input method has an
easily viewable label in big letters. (Before, each input method had
the same icon, and then a small text below it saying what it actually

In addition, there are new input methods for things I never got to
type, like International Phonetic Alphabet and kaomoji.  I haven't
found an emoji input method yet, though.

No, but I have got all my input methods working under IBus, including
Mazc.  It's all good now! ☺
