How do I configure to type in Japanese with ibus anthy?

Dear Parrot os Forum

I’m trying to type in Japanese using ibus anthy but struggling.
I"ve done “sudo apt install ibus anthy” but don’t know how to go further.
Could you please advice me how I can type in romaji Japanese ?

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely

Tosh

Thanks ! I managed to configure Anythy. Here’s what I did;

  1. Installed ibus and anthy with terminal command.
    2.went to “Ibus Preference” from left bottom menue.
    3.from Input Method tab, I added Japanese Anthy.
    4.Now I can switch between latin and Kana on top right IBUS.

Thanks for your help !
ありがとうございました!

If you are using ibus, i’d suggest you remove fcitx.
