* On the GNOME Desktop, '''im-chooser''' is now deprecated except in fallback mode, and with non-ibus input methods, since GNOME 3.6 supports ibus as the default input method system.  Users should now use gnome-control-center to setup their input methods:
+

* If you can't find an input source in the list you are looking for, try running the following command in a terminal and restart the desktop:
+
*:<pre>gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.input-sources show-all-sources true</pre>
+
* There may be no shortcut key to turn on/off the input method by default. you can enable it with the following steps:
+
*# click the ''shortcut settings'' link in the ''Input Sources'' tab on ''System Settings'' or click the ''Keyboard'' icon at the top and the ''Shortcuts'' tab, the ''Typing'' section at the left pane.
+
*# click on the ''Switch to next source'', press '''[Control]''' + '''[space]'''.

* If no input source is configured by default for your native language, you can add it using the above steps as a workaround.  Here is a table of input sources corresponding to the input method engines:
