Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi, I have a new installation of Ubuntu 12.04 I'm having trouble with ibus.
This morning it was working fine. This afternoon, on reboot, it is not present in the top bar of my screen. I tried running im-config, and checked the radio button 'ibus'
I also tried system settings > Language. Normally, one should be able to choose the input method there, but that function does not work, please see screenshot. Where it says 'keyboard input method system' no amount of clicking will elicit a response.
Thanks, but no that is not possible. Ibus is not accessible, so I can't adjust the preferences that way.
What I've done is uninstall everything connected with ibus, then reinstalled. Some older language choices were removed. Now it works again. I think the people at Ubuntu have changed things, but forgot to mention it. Now I can choose Sunpinyin. pinyin has gone. Probably there was a clash of libraries or whatever, I'm no expert. Languages has also disappeared from System Settings. Anyway, it works again. Time for bed, see if it works tomorrow morning!!
