I added the Japanese Layout in Keyboard preferences, however all the layouts look like being in katakana.
I suspect that the key that is to the left of the number 1 (above Tab and under Esc) could be the one to switch from Katakana to Hiragana.
However, I don't have that key in my keyboard and my other Toshiba laptop does not have it either. I really don't know what to do, I simply want to be able to write in Hiragana in Ubuntu.
How can I solve this problem?
