I'm tri-language myself and can't configure ibus in recently installed Beefy Miracle.
I'm using RU+EN+JP (Anthy) and whenever i switch from RU to JP, ibus doesn't catch my input so i can't type japanese. This is probably bug in ibus, but here is more:
Then i try to remove layouts other than Anthy in ibus-setup, settings resets back to default (all using languages) after relogin.
I've installed iBus and ibus-mozc, an input method engine of Japanese, from the repository, and attempted to enable mozc from Preference > "Input Method" tab > "Select Input Method" combo box.
However, there is no choice to select, so I couldn't enable mozc.
I also tried ibus-anthy, another legacy Japanese input method, but the situation was the same and I couldn't use anthy.
My Chrome version is 31.0.1650.63. After the upgrade to 13.10 I struggled to get the Anthy (iBus) input back and working. I thought I had at last but now I discovered that it works pretty much everywhere in Ubuntu, including Skype, which was a problem discussed in another thread, but not in Chrome.
Today I installed Statler A2 and tried the new input method named 'iBus'. http://code.google.com/p/ibus/Its configuration was much easier than SCIMs (I use Chinese Pinyin input) and was installed in short time.
I've installed ibus-anthy for Japanese input. It works fine, and the anthy menus are beautiful in gnome. My problem is that I can't figure out how to get the tray icon to appear, even though I have the "show tray icon" bit checked in the ibus prefs. The default ctrl-space shortcut to switch keyboards also isn't working for me.
Im running Kubuntu 13.10. Ive installed ibus and ibus anthy and have Japanese input working in most programs, but not in Opera, Firefox, or Libreoffice. Its driving me completely nuts!:confused: If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be grateful!
I need the ability to input Japanese, and so do a hundred million or so Japanese people. Getting a keyboard with a mere hundred keys to produce stuff like 魑魅魍魎 is not a simple task, and there are competing software packages that offer to do the job.
