Re: [tlug] Kubuntu 11.10 日本語入力 How?

That's odd. The posted instructions worked for me and I was going to add a "thank you" when I had a moment free. Inputting the first two instructions in your post from the command line restored the Ibus icon and, since my selections in ibus-settings were the way I wanted them, I left those panels alone. A reboot was all it took to get me where I wanted to be.


As a matter of fact, it works better now than it did in 11.04, when I thought I liked it a lot, and there is only one icon instead of the previous two.

One note: I had Ibus installed previously using Synaptic but the command line instruction added a couple of previously missing files. I could input Japanese but the switching between languages was hit-and-miss ... and now it isn't.

As for other OS choices: A couple of Kubuntu users I know are trying out Debian 4 + KDE and say that once you've eliminated the increased asshole factor of the proponents and melted all of the "ice" by installing proper versions, you have an OS with a look and feel similar to Kubuntu but without some of the oddities.

However, I'd heard that the Ibus operating problem is caused by KDE and not Ubuntu ... and I can't tell you whether Debian fixes that.
