Firstly a big "Yes" to that question...

Both on KDE environment, right? As Japanese input works on Ubuntu gnome...

Yeah, anyone would *think* a Japanese install would have Japanese
working by default, and it basically does with Debian, but not with
recent versions of Ubuntu/Kubuntu.  You have to jump hoops here and
there and get broken things to work.  Strangely/surprisingly, Japanese
input on a Japanese install of Ubuntu/Kubuntu is broken.

Again, not on gnome, this puzzles me.
I then wanted to see if getting Japanese working in Ubuntu was as
broken as it is in Kubuntu, but Ubuntu no longer has supports the
graphics chip in my computer (which Kubuntu still does...).

As X server is the same, this is interesting too...
I'm actually helped here with my old machine, as the hated automation
c**p of the new Gnome I am automatically spared, since my machine
can't handle it.

Did you try "gnome classic"? This is what I use: It does not uses fancy
effects, and looks like... hum... classical desktop :-)


2 + 2 = 5, for very large values of 2.
