One particularly interesting keyboard shortcut when typing japanese is the ability to switch the current input between the 3 set of characters which can be used in japanese.
On Windows and most of the japanese input systems, the conversion from hiragana to katakana for instance is bound to F7. Is there a way to mimic this behavior on Ubuntu (and preferably using a key which is less commonly used than this one)?
Generally speaking, is there a way to tune the behavior of Anthy on Ubuntu?
PS: Just to make things clear japanese input works but is unpractical. I want to customize the japanese input behavior, not have directions for initial setup.
