- select System Settings from the menu
- click on the Region & Language icon
- open the Input Sources tab
- click on + icon to add input sources

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.input-sources show-all-sources true
- 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].

|Input source name||Input method engine|
|Chinese (Intelligent Pinyin)||ibus-libpinyin|
|* (inscript (m17n))||ibus-m17n|
|* (itrans (m17n))||ibus-m17n|
