In Ubuntu 18.04 and forward I used to install Japanese(Mozc) software that allowed me to change among the different syllabaries using this tutorial: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/JapaneseInput . It was a graphical install no commands required. It just takes installing Japanese language support and then you can add it to the keyboard layouts. In Linux Mint I successfully installed the language but then it doesn't appears in the available layouts
Am using Linux Mint 20 . Is there any way I can use this software or something similar in Linux Mint?
I also tried installing ibus and ibus-mozc in Linux Mint using:
sudo apt install ibus sudo apt install ibus-mozc
This sort of worked for me but it breaks my Linux Mint languages layout and shortcuts for changing layouts.
