      Original bug report is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1368757

      I try to implement "ForwardKeyEvent" signal in QT5 IBus module and I investigated libibusplatforminputcontextplugin.so but it cannot receive ForwardKeyEvent dbus signal.

      When "CommitText" signal is received, QIBusInputContextProxy::qt_static_metacall() receives the signal correctly in the trace stack:

      But QIBusInputContextProxy::qt_static_metacall() cannot receive "ForwardKeyEvent" signal.

      Do you have any ideas about which part blocks the signal?

      You can test "ForwardKeyEvent" signal in any IBus engines.
      E.g. ibus-tmpl's python engine can have the following test:

      — /usr/share/ibus-tmpl/engine.py.orig
      +++ /usr/share/ibus-tmpl/engine.py
      @@ -49,6 +49,10 @@ class EngineEnchant(IBus.Engine):
      if not is_press:
      return False

      + if keyval == IBus.KEY_j:
      + print('test forward_key_event', keyval, keycode, state)
      + self.forward_key_event(keyval, keycode, state)
      + return True
      if self.__preedit_string:
      if keyval == keysyms.Return:
