When I change language to chinese I automatically get a pinyin input available. How can I access this pinyin input tool without switching everything to chinese? I don't feel like installing additional software, the one that seems to exist is good enough, but I cant access it without chaning everything to chinese! Thanks in advance!

  • Can you please add to the question which version and flavour of Ubuntu you are using. – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Dec 15 '13 at 21:37
  • Select System Settings -> Language Support
  • Change Keyboard input method system from default to IBus
