@brian_p

THANKS! for all your explanation! Very helpful!

Now I hope that I can get Ibus-Anthy running in LM 18.3 KDE.

The only thing I don't understand why setting up Ibus-Anthy in LM 17.3 KDE was so incredible easy.

Re: PC doesn't start

I gave up on restarting the machine and reinstalled it. The installation was at the very beginning and I moved the few data into an external storage.

For me this entire post can be deleted to avoid garbage in the system.
