Chinese input problem (Mint 17)


Hi everyone!

I've recently installed Cinnamon and I really really need Chinese input. So far I've tried ibus, fcitx and gcin. All of them install correctly, I can see their icons in the tray, but none of them work. Ibus only works in menu and nowhere else.. How can I solve this?

Initial setup and configuration of ibus are detailed here:

beachboy2,

thank you! Still no luck with ibus though, installed fcitx instead, everything's working fine now
