Solving the issue unable to input Chinese in Wing IDE

12 months ago by
Taiwanese / Chinese users who use Wing IDE for Linux and Fcitx as their input framework could encounter the issue its unable to switch to Fcitx to input Chinese. Here is the solution:

  1. Find from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/platforminputcontexts/
  2. Find the path of platforminputcontexts of Wing IDE: /usr/lib/wingide-personal6/bin/runtime-qt5.5/plugins/platforminputcontexts
  3. Copy to platforminputcontexts of Wing IDE:
    1. sudo cp /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/platforminputcontexts/ /usr/lib/wingide-personal6/bin/runtime-qt5.5/plugins/platforminputcontexts/
  4. Restart Wing IDE.

This may not work for all combinations of qt versions.  We'll see if we can bundle this input context with Wing.
