Installation / Re: Input Method Editor-no menu item

You're a champ! 8)   You provided the final piece to the puzzle.  I'd more or less done everything you advised me to do but I failed to comprehend how the 'show all input methods' tab worked.

then in the "Select an input method" drop menu, select a language you want (you may need to select "show all input methods") .. then click the "Add" button.

Previous attempts to access this dropdown menu showed me nothing but for some reason all the installed IMEs were present. :o  Hooray!

In the interests of completeness, I should also mention that I had successfully installed SCIM Anthy and it was working as expected.  I personally prefer the iBus IME though.

Thanks to everyone who weighed in on this.

Slim . Fatz,

Thanks for the reply.  I found a Japanese IME walkthrough for Mint.

I knew that I didn't have iBus installed yet so I quickly installed that package from the software manage; straight on to iBus Anthy and I thought I was good to go.  When I checked in the available input methods though Anthy had not registered so I couldn't select it.  I rebooted out of desperation....fingers crossed, still not there.  I thought 'right!'  I'm going to install iBus Mozc and again was stunned to not see it among the input methods.  Not quite sure where to go from here.

Cheers Ramlee.

Hi Andy,

The menu item you referred to Select Keyboard Layout, simply informs the OS which keyboard layout to assume for the purposes of typing text.  I happen to be using an old Dell laptop with a Japanese keyboard as the unit was setup by Dell primarily for Japanese consumers.   When I installed P6, I was asked what keyboard layout I had so that item has already been selected.  Selecting a Japanese keyboard layout does not however allow you to type Japanese; one still needs to install a language pack (fonts etc.) or two as well as an input method editor (IME).  Most distros come with an IME prepackaged which allows you to switch between different character input options; P6 does not out of the box.  Thanks for the suggestion.

First post; Hi everyone.  I've just made the move over to Peppermint and so far I'm impressed.  Although my first language is English, I also like/need to type in Japanese.  Setting up Anthy or Mozc on almost any other distro has usually been pretty straightforward but so far I have yet to locate a keyboard/preference menu item that would allow me to do this.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Cheers Ramlee.
