Currently I'm giving the Duolingo Japanese course a go. Trying to get Ubuntu all set up to type Kana/Kanji has been a real pain, so just wanted to document it.
Thanks to this post. I don't have any Ubuntu-exchange reputation, so I can't upvote it.
Anthy seems like the way to go, however it's not installed
by default if you just go into
Settings -> Region & Language and try to set it up there. These
are the steps (as far as I can tell) that I did to get things setup.
sudo apt install ibus-anthy
- Restart. I tried just logging out, didn't work for me.
Settings -> Region & Languageand select
I also installed Japanese through
Settings -> Language Support, but that does not seem to be
necessary from what I can tell.
Not sure why this was so difficult to do. Good luck.
