How to add Chinese input method, such as Pinyin, to Unbuntu 18.04?

To input Chinese, first install an input method framework. Here, we use fcitx.

Then you need to input the Pinyin input method. You may use fcitx-sunpinyin.

Put them all together

$ sudo apt-get install fcitx fcitx-sunpinyin

After that, set the default input method to fcitx in Control Center -> Language Support to be fcitx by choosing ‘fcitx` in the “Keyboard input method system” part.

The log out and log in again. You can find the input method icon in the panel. In the configuration dialog, you may add the Chinese input methods there.

You may also use Google Pinyin 谷歌拼音输入法 with fcitx to have a better vacabulary database.

To install Google Pinyin, do

$ sudo apt-get install fcitx-googlepinyin

After login and logout, in the fcitx configuration panel, you may add Google Pinyin as one input method now.
