My wife is a mac user, and her computer died unexpectedly.
I am on Hera 5.1.7 using an HP probook 6450b. it's old, but its my best computer.
She has been STRUGGGLING to get Japanese input methods and layouts and now she's done something [Backspace] is producing a "]"instead of removing a character. I fixed it, but she is done trying and is using her phone for an online class in japanese (not ideal).
I tried to see what I could do, even creating a user with the japanese language UI, but the input is still in latin characters... Even more bizarre, typing "code" in the Applications Menu shows Terminal. Maybe this is because I don't have a Japanese input method (there are 3) yet
I tried a method that involved installing ibus-anthy, but that didn't work.
I am desperate.
