(IBus) Can not type Vietnamese on gui applications in container

Hello guys,

I installed the application according to the instructions https://blog.simos.info/how-to-easily-run-graphics-accelerated-gui-apps-in-lxd-containers-on-your-ubuntu-desktop/. I also installed ibus-unikey in the gui container. The application works normally but I have problems with the input method, namely ibus-unikey, I cannot type Vietnamese on some applications such as chrome, viber, signal, etc. although I can type Vietnamese on firefox, gedit.

I need your help and sincerely thank you for any feedback!

Can you try to set the following variables first.

export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus
export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus

and then run those applications to test whether they work now?

Thanks for your help but they not work. I think I should give it up.

I am not familiar with ibus input methods.
If you can give simple instructions on how to set this up on a desktop computer, I can give it a go.
