writing japanese is little bit simple than any other north-east asian characters, but i think that there is someone who wants to know how to write Chinese/Korean/Vietnamese with Japanese(to help explaining meaning of some kind of word) in Gentoo Linux. Japanese also contains Chinese characters(but it's partially different from any other chinese characters using in Simplified Chinese/Traditional Chinese/Korean/Vietnamese) and there are so many different way to input CJKV characters. in my case, I know how to input Japanese and Korean, but I do not know about Chinese and Vietnamese.

I think that we can prove excellence of UTF-8 in here by document, because each language had unique encoding so each language hasn't show together by one encoding many years ago. expanding this document to make "How to read and write in CJKV language" would be better.

how would you think about it? -- Darkcircle (talk) 09:25, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Is there a particular reason Ibus is preferred over SCIM?

The page mentions that ibus is preferred over SCIM, but doesn't state why. Additionally, the page for SCIM on this wiki redirects to Wikipedia's page, preventing one from creating the page. app-i18n/scim is still in the tree and works, and is maintained by the CJK project; its latest stable release is from July 2017.

Agreed, two years later and this still seems like a strange piece of conjecture. It appears that fcitx is required to input into the terminal, it does not appear that ibus-anthy can do this natively. Testing and will follow up, I found it notable that this author https://srobb.net/jpninpt.html#Gentoo found that `Gentoo's own pages are slanted towards ibus'. It seems perhaps there was an editor or two who had some kind of bias in the past, in the absence of some argument from them as to why we should accept ibus as superior, I would recommend the ibus dogmatism be removed

Inputting Text into the Terminal

It does not appear that the article addresses how to input Japanese into a standard terminal (i.e., uxvterm). I will write a section about this if I have time, but perhaps someone more knowledgeable than me ought to do.

For those who are reading this, https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-1852138.html appears to be a more indepth guide than this article
