How to use ibus for inputting Chinese in Cinnamon on Fedora

How to use ibus for inputting Chinese in Cinnamon on Fedora 19? By default, ibus is not started. If I manually start it by run

$ ibus-daemon

The ibus daemon is started and an icon appears in the tray area.

However, no Chinese is inputted to the programs even it is turned on in the ibus icon in the tray.

What you need is the imsettings-cinnamon package on Fedora:

# yum install imsettings-cinnamon

After installing the package, you can configure the choice of the inputting method by running:

$ im-chooser

Select “Use IBus” and you will be able to use ibus as the inputting method for Cinnamon.
