    I have all this working for a romanized keyboard for Lao language, under Ubuntu 18.04
    But I am using a national keyboard (Swiss french), and ibus-m17n engine uses the US layout.
    So I have to modify the mim table accordingly (and it becomes very complicated with friends using the French keyboard).
    ibus-setup has an option for this, but Ubuntu is using ibus in another way and does not “listen” to what is setup with ibus-setup.

    ibus-m17n does not work in Ubuntu 19.04 and 19.10 like in earlier versions including 18.10

    this method is good for many languages, such german language, but no use for chinese language input.

    any idea how to do Chinese language input using ibus ?

      I don’t know why this method is no use for Chinese. I will check and update the guide if I find any workaround. Thanks for letting me know.

    my previous chinese input method works because i was using fcitx input method instead of ibus.
