Typing in Japanese

(I will add more on typing in Japanese later. Also, if someone wants to post something on Japanese fonts in Ubuntu, that would be very much appreciated, since there tend to be so many Linux users here.)

Why both? Just "Microsoft IME" is enough.

Linux != Ubuntu.

I pretty much have my typing set up as roumaji. I type "nihongo" and it comes out にほんご then I push "space" creating 日本語.

Yeah, typing with a kana keyboard is silly unless you have the markings on the keys.

Yeah, I had it set up on kana, but it was ridiculously complicated.
I hate roumaji.
僕ロウマジ好かない。

Or should I use 嫌う?

I have done all these but no Kana or Kanji appear. What am I doing wrong? Actually right now I am using the JP keyboard..
Is there something more I need? Download some programme?

If it's xp, have you restarted first?

Do you see the Language bar with JP on it? (if you talking about Windows, of course)

What is an IME? Do I have to download and run one?

In Vista, you already have it. In XP, you have to install it from the install CD.

Or you can find an XP distro. Somewhere. ;)

Theres bound to be places online that you could either download the necessary files, or even download a new xp cd. I know it's illegal but you'd only be using it for installing the Japanese stuff... right?

Another less than favourable option would be to NJStar (if it's still around). It's what I used when we had windows 2000 and I couldn't get the Japanese installed.

BTW, there is IME for Win2000 on the Miсrosoft site; maybe, there is one for XP, too.

Thank you, I don't understand what I have to do though, so I give up

諦めちゃ駄目。Torrentsは汝が友だ。 :)  Just download the required distro, and when Windows asks for the Setup files, point to its place. 

Or you can download buy ATOK. It's also IME, but the more advanced one.
