http://ubuntuforums.org – Can anyone point me in the right direction on 'how to have a chinese onboard keyboard' in Ubuntu 12.04? I have the language changed and am able to type chinese in libre writer but I am trying to get a MSW like onboard keyboard so I can see and build the caricatures/words(bopomofo). I have the onboard keyboard but it is English only, and will not type, even though the settings are Chinese/bopomofo. Happy to provide more information if needed. Thanks, West. (Hardware)
