Japanese input entry support

Posted 06-09-2011 at 09:35 AM by neonsignal

Adding support for keyboard entry of Japanese characters is straightforward using scim-anthy:
Code:
apt-get install scim-anthy
The input method is set to 'scim via scim-bridge', by running im-switch
Code:
im-switch -c
Then the X session will need to be restarted, and by default the key combination ctrl-space is used to switch between input methods.
