How can I enable Chinese character input in Kubuntu 16.10 on Plasma 5.8? Been searching around for answers but still no luck!
I found this answer - http://askubuntu.com/questions/59081/ho ... put-method but it seems quite old.
I can enable Chinese character input in Xubuntu 16.10 easily by installing ibus-pinyin and selecting Chinese options in Input Method (I have no language options in my Kubuntu):
But how can I do that in Kubuntu?
I have this message on my Kubuntu when I launch input Method:
I can't find Language Support in my kubuntu 16.10 as well! why??

Old topic may not be useful but KDE really lack off out of the box input selection. It is just preventing 1/2 of the world population to use KDE/plasma.
This kind of method could help :

You need to replace ibus anthy with chinese input probably something like : ibus-pinyin
Always check out Arch linux wiki which provides great information but may not match your system packages.
You need to start ibus at kde start it used to be in .xprofile but I think know it is in ~/.config/autostart-scripts/start.sh.
You need to run ibus to see the icon, you can use ibus-setup to configure it.
