Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Look in menu
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on applications menu
2. Look in Settings
3. Don't find this
... you get the idea
As the .desktop file contains 'NotShowIn=XFCE;' I would have expected it to show up in the KDE menu.
Yes, I am aware that there's a kcm for "fcitx", however a lot of the instructions on the lazywebs for enabling (e.g.) Japanese input seem based around using im-chooser (and ibus), and the KDE config module seems to expect fcitx to already be running, rather than offering a way to configure it to start with the session.
Can you see any logs when you run im-chooser on konsole say?

Well, I tried to reproduce this but couldn't. once I got im-chooser installed (on f27 KDE Live, it isn't available there by default), I can see "Input Method Selector" under KDE Menu->Applications->Settings.
I can run it from the command line, but I expected to find it in the Settings menu. It's not there. If I remove "X-GNOME-PersonalSettings;" from the Categories line, it shows up.
It also shows up if I *search* using the search box once I've opened the menu.
This is Application Menu, not an alternative.
Honestly, I don't actually care whether it's "im-chooser", or someone comes up with a KDE version, as long as it appears in that menu with the same description, because almost all the instructions I found using Google mention this (and are generally quite GNOME-centric, but at least if this shows up in the menu, people can find it!).
Are you sure you aren't seeing the fcitx configuration menu entry? It's called "Input Method Configuration", and it doesn't work unless fcitx is already running, which didn't help :o)
Requested info: yes, I see one line of output when I run it in a konsole:
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
Another possibility is that KDE may changed their mind to follow up the GNOME's behavior about the desktop entries. it may be likely if you can also see the menu on KDE Live as I attached and package version is different to what you have.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '27'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
