lucky you, i just found how to do this, i added it in the wiki
a copy here

ibus works in trinity, with these three changes

1.applications need this variable in their environment
export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus
you can add it in ~/.bashrc
or in the terminal just before
launching the application

2. ibus in xim mode
ibus-daemon --xim -d

3.embed the preedit text, otherwise it appears at
the bottom left corner of the window.
in ibus applet
right click applet > preferences >
embed preedit text in application window
