You can't. What you can do is start a new X-session on a different tty (screen) which should leave the apps running in the first session untouched. (This is how some display managers [e.g., KDM] allow multiple log-ins of different users using the the same physical display/keyboard.) Source: ...

You need to enable IBus and select the method of input. Restart X-server or reboot. Right click on the applications when opened ie: Gedit, to change input method. Let me attach the windows options you should have:

Ubuntu keeps all it's plans in a system on launchpad called blueprints, each feature or plan is carefully laid out and given a time line.

You may want to take a look here: http://code.google.com/p/ibus/wiki I had exactly same problem as Yours but thanks to Your post and webmarwells reply I have found solution :) Was missing also the trigger to actually start input of pinyin.

OK, I started to figure it out. Part of it was related to installation issues. Mainly, a logout is required before the IME is functional! How to completely uninstall/disable Korean input: I uninstalled Nabi the same way I installed it: via Ubuntu Software Center.

Install Input Method Switcher from Software Center and select ibus as the default method for your locale. I also had the same problem with the Greek language and this solved it. Or from terminal use the command "im-switch -s ibus", after installing of course the package "im-switch"

I think a better way of enabling ibus should be the following im-switch -s ibus There is no need to manually add startup entry for ibus-daemon

Install the package iBus from the kubuntu repository, info here: http://code.google.com/p/ibus/.

I think what you are looking for is in the Unicode composition section of the Ubuntu documentation for the ComposeKey. The next bit is based on the instructions in that section. Another means to enter non-keycap characters is to enter them as a Unicode character number. Press ShiftCtrl+U. Release U while continuing to hold down ShiftCtrl. Enter the ...

The ComposeKey sequences used by Gnome to enter special characters are hard coded into the program, so your modified settings will work with X programs, and apparently KDE programs, but not with Gtk programs.

The apps started over X will be killed if you restart X. You cannot avoid that.

I'm pretty new to using IME for Japanese myself. Like you, I've been studying Japanese but have little experience with IME's yet (except on Windo$e hehe). But I found this link to be a good starting point for some research into the matter. I haven't had much luck finding a straight up comparison myself, yet but I'll check back here and let you know if I find ...

Ubuntu already comes with a brilliant language input tool called iBus 1) Open Terminal and run: sudo apt-get install ibus-m17n This will install, keyboard layout schemes for Asian languages. 2) Now you need to logout from the system & login back.

The im-config command provides the framework to configure the input method on X Window System. This input method is the essential mechanism for Japanese, Chinese and Korean (CJK) languages to enter their non-ASCII native characters. FYI: For any command you want to know the purpose of, you can open a terminal and type man COMMAND_NAME. Example: To find ...

I'd like to add to what @amanthethy wrote that im-config is basically a feature behind the scenes which users, including users who need special input methods, don't normally access directly. The input method selector provided by Language Support is typically sufficient.

iBus is still significantly inferior for most of the half-dozen or so IMEs I use regularly, so it's still SCIM all the way for me. They both use the same modules (so an identical list of input-method engines, scripts etc. are available) but SCIM doesn't mangle any of them like iBus does in places. For Sinhala in particular, the m17n engine works very ...
