this issue is not only chinese actually, CJK all got big issues with this.

CJK are guys from regions using chinese, japanese, and korean text characters. these dual-byte characters need IME to input.

also ibus family input method enhancer on linux cannot work with steam client for linux.
not only Chinese guys, i once saw a Japanese guy who wanted similar feature supporting with steam for linux.

if i did not go wrong, he once said anthy as a feature request, but which anthy, as far as i know on ubuntu, popular IME structures for Chinese+Japanese+Korean, there are ibus, scim, and, fcitx.
so, there are ibus-anthy, scim-anthy, and fcitx-anthy, so, which one?

well, personally, i think ibus family and fcitx family are better.

plus, another interesting issue going with this is that,

steam for linux cannot support copy and paste on ubuntu graphic desktop.

try it yourself, you will find, type/input some straight text into gedit window,

then copy them, then go steam for linux, go into dota2 game for linux, then paste the text into dota2 game chat window, try it, you will see, nothing copied and pasted.

why?

so if steam for linux cannot support IME on linux, very soon, could you guys add copy and paste for text on linux, then if some steam users only need less text input , copy and paste is enough for noob users.

because actually, now steam for linux can display chinese characters, like WenQuanYi fonts(also known as WQY fonts for Simplified Chinese.)
but, no IME support. and no copy and paste~

There's already an issue open to support ibus, but I'll leave this too as a general feature request for any of the mentioned IMEs.

Yes I'm using fcitx (with mozc), too, and can only input latin characters. It generally works much better than ibus in my system, so it would be great if I could also use it in Steam.

I'm also interested in support for fcitx.

I wonder if IM support for Steam is the same as for the games. Most likely not. I haven't found a game where I can activate fcitx either. If fcitx support for steam platform and for individually games should be implemented seperately then it is much a nightmare.

Sogou Pinyin Method, the most popular input method in China, has released their Linux version by deb package, which is based on fcitx. So I prefer a fcitx fix for now.

Dota2 can input Chinese a year ago but why steam client still can't input ?
