Fienix boots without IBus running. I go Menu>Preferences>IBus Preferences.

The IBus daemon is not running. Do you wish to start it?

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

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.
