IBus has been started! If you cannot use IBus, add the followsing lines to your $HOME/.bashrc; then relog into your desktop.
  export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
  export XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus
  export QT_IM_MODULE=ibus
        OK

The first time I got this message I failed to find $HOME/.bashrc, so I made one. I have since found /etc/bash.bashrc, so I went to Ubuntu to compare the situation. Ubuntu has both $HOME/.bashrc and /etc/bash.bashrc. They share some lines, but not all. Neither file in Ubuntu has any of those "export" lines.

As for fonts, I can insert Japanese characters one at a time in LibreOffice Writer from Noto Sans CJK JP, but not yet type it in.

I am a bit baffled. ("a bit" means "totally.")

Oh, I forgot this little oddity last night, possibly a clue? When I set to either of the Japanese options, the keyboard gets a bit mixed up.

Keyboard - English

~!@#$%^&*()_+
qwertyuiop[]\

Keyboard - Japanese (JA) or - Anthy

I don't think the problem is related to bashrc. bashrc is just commands to run upon login. The bashrc in /etc affects all users. The one in the home folder affects only that user.

Noting that ibus and Anthy both work fine in Ubuntu 16.04 and no bashrc there has any of the lines I was supposed to add "if you cannot use ibus," I removed the one I had set up in fienix. Ibus works the same as before, allowing me to choose Japanese - Anthy or English - English (US), without letting me actually type Japanese.

But now that the bashrc with those lines is gone, one improvement: the keyboard doesn't change when I select Anthy the way it did before.

A bit of excitement today as I switched from Ubuntu to Fienix to check whether the New Moon in Fienix would have the same problem as the one in Ubuntu. As it was booting up with all those screen messages, I got a new one, Start job running. I often get stop jobs when I quit Ubuntu, but I had no idea there were start jobs too.

I had start jobs running for three different things. Network Manager Wait Online, Rotate log files, and Disk Manager. The Disk Manager one failed and stopped running after 6 minutes and 29 seconds, but the other two kept going. I was afraid to hit the restart button for fear that something would end up making Fienix unbootable if they didn't finish, but after 10 minutes I gave up and pressed the restart button on X5000. No problem this time. :P
