Japanese input?

Does anybody know how (or if) Japanese input works on Haiku???

I’ve found Japanese keymap and some files from Canna package, so I thought Japanese ime should work in some way, but I just can’t get how.

Canna is included in Haiku, but it is not enabled by default. Once installed, Canna works fine to provide decent basic Japanese input.

First, change the font settings to be able to display Japanese during the conversion process. To do so, just open the Fonts preferences application and change the Plain, Bold and Menu font settings to “VL Gothic” (this is a JApanese font included by default in Haiku).

Now proceed to install the IME. To do so, just move the Canna file in…




You can confirm whether Canna has been loading by looking at the Deskbar: there should be a keyboard-looking icon under the Haiku menu leaf. To enable/disable Japanese input, just press Alt-Space.


Yes, it is what I wanted.
