I've installed ibus and anthy for japanese input, and changed my keyboard input settings. For now, ibus is working decently, except for the fact that the notification icon doesn't show up, and even after configuring ibus by running 'ibus-settings' through the terminal to always show the language bar menu, it doesn't show up. So both the language bar and the notification icon are missing, which means that I can't configure anthy to allow me to switch writing modes. Can someone help me out? I'd like to be able to restore this missing icon and have the option to show to language bar.
I am using kubuntu 11.10 x64.
