My desktop is lxqt.
I use ibus to write Korean, and it works well in qt and gtk programs.
But when creating a folder name or file name in Korean in pcmanfm-qt, ibus does not convert from English to Korean.
I test other file manager coding qt like qtfm and found it works.

Additional info:
* package version(s) : 1.0.0
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make new folder or file in pcamnfm-qt,
2. try to convert language with input method like ibus,fcitx...
This task depends upon

Seems ibus-hangul works with pcmanfm-qt for me. Could you check if environment variable QT_IM_MODULE=ibus is correctly set for pcmanfm-qt? You can run lxqt-config-session, stop the "Desktop" module, and run `QT_IM_MODULE=ibus pcmanfm-qt` from a terminal to see if it works with input methods.

The environment variables are set correctly of course. I found that pcmanfm-qt works well in desktop environments such as openbox, gnome, and xfce4, but ibus does not work only in lxqt.
And in lxqt, ibus works well in other qt programs (qtfm..). Only pcmanfm-qt doesn't work.

If I log in with openbox or xfce4 after booting for the first time and log in again with lxqt, sometimes ibus works in lxqt. However, after rebooting and logging in as lxqt immediately, ibus does not work in pcmanfm-qt. Of course, ibus works well in other programs also at this time.
