iBus-Mozc: New Input Method for Japanese

Google Japan recently announced on its blog that the Japanese Input Method, which has been in development since last December, is officially out of beta. There is actually an open-source version of this input method called Mozc.

Install iBus-Mozc in ubuntu using PPA

Open the terminal and run the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:japaneseteam/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install ibus ibus-mozc ibus-gtk

Once you restart, you should then see in the applet menu the keyboard icon. Under the setting, you can add Japanese > Mozc to enable the input method.

    Thanks for showing a path to Japanese IME. But when I type the commands you described, my Linux Mint replies with “err”. What can I do to imput Japanese letters?
