Hi, Folks,

I'm just wondering if there are any Linux users out there who can advise me. I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop, and have been using SCIM to input Chinese, but SCIM seems a bit creaky, and occasionally does odd things, eating up my system resources, and demanding a re-install. IBus (http://code.google.com/p/ibus/) looks promising as an alternative, and certainly seems prettier, but I can't seem to get it working. Anybody out there managed to get IBus installed on their machine? And if so, is it a worthy replacement for SCIM.

Thanks,

Will
