I haven’t yet understood why people are moving to fcitx. I have tried it myself after it was automatically installed on my openSUSE machine to replace iBus and found it completely unusable. I didn’t even manage to get any input languages added.

I am using iBus for writing Japanese and I consider it the superior and simpler-to-use solution.

Is there anything that fcitx is supposed to do better than iBus?
