Re: GTK Input method and Windows IME

Replying to myself.
I did some testing and it seems I'm able to map the input method to
locales in the "gtk.immodules" file.

However I would prefer to be able set the input method without having
to rely on the locale as users can use "en" locale but Hindi input
