Setting Up fcitx-mozc in Fedora 23 KDE

こんにちは。今回のテーマは『Fedora 23に日本語入力fcitx-mozcを導入する』です。最近はLinuxでの日本語入力としてfcitx-mozcの人気がジワジワ高まっているように感じます。

Recently, Mozc, Japanese input methode engine by Google become more popular, compared with Anthy, so does fcitx upon ibus. In the official repository of Fedora, there’s fcitx-anthy, but unfortunately, there’s no fcitx-mozc yet.

Here I will wrap up the workaround for those who want to use fcitx-mozc in Fedora 23. Be careful, that you take responsible of all risks that may happen, as it may lead to dependency hell. Basically, you are going to get favor from OpenSUSE as it has provided fcitx-mozc. You need 3 packages to be downloaded: fcitx-mozc, mozc, and mozc-gui-tools.

  1. Download those 3 packages from https://software.opensuse.org/421/en, select “more version” link, under Direct install button, there you can choose the package version and system architecture, whether 32 bit or 64 bit
    fedora31
  2. Remove ibus-mozc and mozc if already installed via command sudo dnf remove ibus-mozc mozc
  3. Install fcitx if it’s not installed yet, sudo dnf install fcitx kcm-fcitx
  4. Then install the previously downloaded packages via console. sudo dnf install fcitx-mozc.rpm fcitx-gui-tools.rpm mozc.rpm
    fedora33
  5. Once it successfully installed, you can set the default input method to fcitx-mozc via system settings.
    fedora34
    at the left list, you may have to uncheck the option “Only show the current language” to show Mozc and move to the right. Apply the settings and just relogin to Plasma to take effect and see the fcitx icon at the taskbar below.

  1. For some reasons, Firefox detect malware and block downloads of rpm from the mirror you give. I did not have problems by using another mirror
