Enable Japanese Language Keyboard Input in Ubuntu

The latest and newest Ubuntu such as Oneiric Ocelot version makes setting and tweaking the OS simple. One of the simple way offered by Ubuntu OS is its customization to your language both as display window and keyboard input. This article will review step-by-step to make Japanese characters: Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana are enabled in your Ubuntu. So, you can write in Kanji or Hiragana to your friends via email, chat and other.

First, open the dash home (in Unity) and type : Language. What you need is both Language Support Option and Keyboard Input. Please see figure below, to have more detail.

In the Language Support, press the Install / Remove Languages… button.

In the Installed Languages screen, scroll down to Japanese and check Input methods and Extra fonts, and press Apply Changes.

You will be prompted for your administration password.

The necessary packages will start downloading.

The downloaded packages will be installed automatically.

A dialog box confirming the Japanese language packages have been installed will be displayed.

Then, go to keyboard input method and add the Japanese input (Anthy). Now you can use kanji, hiragana and katakana in your keyboard. Just click the iBus icon on the panel or by shortcut, the default short cut is Ctrl+Fn+Space.

 Let's try, and show me if you got the problem..
