I am trying to use fcitx but getting nowhere.

I can see the keyboard icon on the top-right of screen, but no matter what input method option I chose, I'm still typing english.

The only way I can type is by using the virtual keyboard which is painful.

All posts I've read so far are about installing but nothing about using.


Try going back to your text-entry. Click the wrench/driver 'x' button. Pay attention to the toggle key.

Now click on your desired language icon at your icon bar. Then use the toggle button shortcut.

  • I'm not sure how to do that with Ubuntu. Can you teach me? – Dooboo Sep 25 '16 at 17:07
  • I can't answer your question by posting an answer to your answer. Post a new question in AskUbuntu with the title "How can I take a screen picture" (I use Alt+Print Screen) or search existing questions to see if someone has already asked this. For example: (This one) [askubuntu.com/questions/6558/… – WinEunuuchs2Unix Sep 25 '16 at 17:24
