OK, got it. Japanese (kana) is chosen. Keyboard is jp(kana). But
still, looks like and types like the same keyboard as usual.
Hmmm... Had to restart the machine ;-) Good thing the login is still
done using the US keyboard. I see that once ibus is used, then all
input methods have to be configured within ibus. Unless the bus daemon
is not used. Now I added English, so I can switch within ibus.
Is there any information on how to actually use Japanese input,
including descriptions of keyboard layouts ? The keyboard I've chosen
seems to be limited to katakana (that is, when knowing what the layout
is). Is there a hiragana keyboard ? And is there also kanji selection
based on hiragana/romaji ? Or based on pictogram sketches (perhaps
like IME on Windows) ?
