ubuntu 下面较为好用的输入法

我尝试过google pinyin, sogou, scim, 和sunpinyin。 大致谈一下优劣。

scim在我的linux使用史里面占据重要地位。 当年我是从源码到设置一步步搞, 一步步搜索费了九牛二虎之力才装上的, 当时能够在linux输入汉字那实在太满意了。 但是, 最近几年用了ubuntu, 越来越觉得scim很难用, 有时候还莫名其妙死掉, 可能是开发跟不上了吧. 最后不得已, 发现fcitx这个平台可能比ibus好, 里面还有google拼音,就用了几个apt-get命令把scim清除出我的系统了。

google拼音我windows下一直用, 想象中应该同样好用, 可是用了才发现, 不是那么回事。 linux下面google拼音不支持模糊音, 哎, 那个痛苦呀。 我试着google ubuntu下最好用的输入法, 结果有人推荐sogou, 我不是是sogou的粉丝, 但是抱着试试看的心情就把sogou给装了。 7 more words
