Description Scott Robbins 2017-08-06 14:41:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora is one of the few distributions that have not yet included an fcitx-mozc package for Japanese input.  There is an fcitx-anthy package that works quite well, but anthy seems to be almost dead.  

There were SuSE rpms that worked on F23, but I haven't been able to get them working on F25 or F26. 

(while at it, it would be great if it could get into EPEL-7 as well, but I'll confine this one to F26, as my request for fcitx-anthy is still in epel-testing.)
Comment 1 Robin Lee 2017-08-06 22:04:56 EDT
This requires a patch to the mozc package. But the maintainer of mozc in Fedora does not want to have this downstream patch. So, it may not be possible to provide fcitx-mozc until the patch merged upstream mozc, or the maintainer changes his mind.

You can install fcitx-mozc from the fdzh repo.

Not trying to reopen, but just a note for people who may come across this in a google search. The FZUG repo mentioned doesn't seem to have fcitx-mozc for F26 (or earlier versions).

Thanks for the explanation.
