I'm trying to find a pinyin input method for traditional chinese that works on Ubuntu 20.04. A lot of similar questions on askubuntu are from around 9 years ago, and the answers no longer seem to fully apply.
If I go to the language support panel and use Ibus as my input method system, the Chinese options available are either for China (simplified) or Hong Kong (traditional). When adding input methods in the Region and Language menu, China's version (i.e., simplified chinese) has intelligent pinyin which seems to work fine, but it's for simplified chinese, and the Hong Kong (traditional) version does not list intelligent pinyin as an input method. The other methods seem to either not function or not be pinyin.
Is there a way to switch the Intelligent Pinyin from simplified to traditional? Or is there an Ibus traditional chinese pinyin input method I'm unaware of?
I tried switching from Ibus to fcitx, and added input methods using
fcitx-configtool. However, the pinyin options I found were either simplified (with google's input method), or they didn't work. Is there a way to get google's pinyin input to support traditional characters? Does
fcitx have a working traditional pinyin input method? Any help would be appreciated.
