This is strange.

Here, just after installing these tibus-able-chinese packages did not
cause to show newly installed methods in GNOME SHELL Keyboard source
list.  But after rebooting system (I think we need to restart ibus only
but this is the surest method to parameters for all installed IM for
sure.), I can see all the table method here.  Please note that settings
by the ibus-setup command is not used in GNOME.

And you say you rebooted to check.

By the way, have you had them functional previously?  Or you just
installed tham now?  (Sounds like you had working system.  But ... to be
sure, I am asking.)

So you are gdm3 to boot.

Aha, you are XFce user.  There you are using ibus-setup commantd to
setup input method.  What do you see in the ibus-setup dialog.  Can you
add "Input Method" for your choice there.  Unless you do, you get no

Looks good UTF-8.

Since I have no problem under GNOME, let me check XFce.
