Per the command output "ibus-pinyin is already the newest version (1.5.0-3ubuntu3)", sounds this module
had been installed, But not show at Module Setting-->Language.

You do not have this module?

You have to enable this module in order to see Language tab in main setting dialogs (you will find input-method-settings there)

I checked the Main menu > Settings > Modules, same issue as before. still nothing there.
So how to enable the Chinese language module ? and how to use it to input Chinese characters?

This time I can see a Chinese Language icon (China National Flag ) on the bottom bar, please see attached screen copy.

But here show is Keyboard setting which have Both English and Chinese Keyboard.I don't know how to use it to input Chinese words.

I am a little bit confused here. Because Chinese Keyboard , this concept, does not exist!
( Maybe means Wubi, But less and less people use it, esp. in Mainland China, most people use Chinese Pinyin.)
I suggest to put effort to make the Chinese Pinyin input available just like other OS.

Chinese is different from English. it is not to combined the 26 English Characters to create a word.
In the most basic form, the pinyin method allows a user to input Chinese characters by entering the pinyin of a Chinese character and then presenting the user with a list of possible characters with that pronunciation, Here it is the pronunciation.
a short combination of keys will generate several words have the same pronunciation, then you pick, this method
is what used on Android and Windows and Ubuntu.

another input method called Wubi. To type a character in Wubi, you don’t spell out how it sounds—you punch in a sequence of keys that corresponds to what it looks like and how it’s drawn. A Wubi-configured keyboard looks just like the Western version but has additional labels on each key.
Maybe this is what called Chinese Keyboard. But less and less people use it, esp. in Mainland China, most people use Chinese Pinyin now.


Although there are different methods, but the concept is same.

I should create a desktop video for enabling chinese. Let me have some minutes. Unfortunately I have no BL 4.5 around. I will emulate on BL 5.1. OK? Let's hope it is same.
