I did not mean any offense. Just suggestions. Hopefully you don't
mind. As for the solution, Boyuan has posted it with many details.
As for me, I always used sougou-pinyin or google-pinyin on Debian and
Ubuntu. I would suggest you use one of those as they are the most
popular among Chinese users, from whom you can get lots of help from.
To install sougou-pinyin, do the following:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fcitx-team/nightly
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fcitx
sudo apt-get install sogoupinyin
and then use `im-config' or `fcitx-config' to configure the fcitx
input framework. If you can't apt-get the sougou-pin package, you can
download from the official website , install it manually and fix
any dependency problems you encounter. There are three things you have
1. switch from ibus to fcitx in your system setting after you have
2. configure fcitx to use sougou-pin with command `fcitx-config'
The process for google-pinyin is similar. There is a blog post in
Chinese  (for ubuntu ) which can provide you some hints. Hopefully
that would help.
I am not a Debian 9 user currently (using ubuntu now) so I don't know
every detail. Nevertheless I would be glad if I can provide any
