RStudio marry 搜狗拼音输入法

From above 1.2.5001, one can just try the first method in Development, the only flaw is the square when you type Pinyin.


Ubuntu 不愧是 Linux 的亲儿子(我瞎说的),连搜狗拼音输入法都有得用。

但一件很尴尬的事情是,我最喜欢的 IDE,RStudio,不支持搜狗拼音输入法。我曾在爆栈网(Stack Overflow)搜过一次,结果最好的结局方法貌似是 用 RStudio Server 来代替(毕竟浏览器可以正常使用搜狗拼音输入法),真让人无语。

But today, I manage to use 搜狗拼音输入法 in RStudio, after exploring for half a day.


Thanks to this post, I know the reason is that is missing. I use apt-file find and find fcitx-frontend-qt5 provides that .so. But 搜狗拼音输入法 still doesn’t work.

Then I found another post, which helped me build fcitx-qt5 from source:

sudo apt install cmake extra-cmake-modules fcitx-libs-dev
# the critical step, you have to install Qt
export PATH="/path/to/Qt/5.10.1/gcc_64/bin:$PATH"

After that, I get a, and this .so did help enabled 搜狗拼音输入法 in Qt Creator.


Motivated by aboving result, I figured out that RStudio 1.1.142 use Qt 5.4.2.

Finally, I built using Qt 5.4.2 and fixed the problem (put it inside /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/platforminputcontexts/).

By the way, the Qt Maintenance Tool is really clumsy, you’d better uninstall & install if you want to add modules.
