How to set up Japanese input method in Fedora 11 —28 June 2009
It’s great that these things keep getting easier. I used to have to tweak .gnomerc and .uim files and running uim-xim at startup… Probably that’s a thing of the past. Here’s how you do it the modern way.
yum install scim-lang-japanese
Next, go to System | Preferences | Input Method. This brings up the IM Chooser dialog. I selected IBus because it was marked recommended. Then in Input Method Preferences, and choose the Input Methods tab and select the input methods you want. That’s it! You can swith to Japanese input with Ctrl - Space.
