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 [1], install it manually and fix
any dependency problems you encounter. There are three things you have
to remember:

    1. switch from ibus to fcitx in your system setting after you have
installed fcitx.
    2. configure fcitx to use sougou-pin with command `fcitx-config'
or `im-config'
    3. reboot

The process for google-pinyin is similar. There is a blog post in
Chinese [2] (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
further help.
