I have seen how to do it on Windows but I can't find out how to add Korean lettering to Open Office on Linux. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks.

I know that on MS Office (?) there is a thing you can get where typing in hangul is easy, using special characters is pretty tiresome and finding the one I want out of hundreds is just a pain.

I think you want Preferences/IBus Preferences

Sounds like you're looking for an input method editor (IME). I know there's a good one for Japanese, and it seems like there should be for Korean, as well. I'll do a little rooting around.

Yes, I think your best bet is to use ibus. If you haven't yet, install Korean under Language Settings (within System Settings) and set the input method to ibus.

Then open ibus settings and turn on the Korean input method.

After that, the keyboard icon in your system tray should allow you to turn the IME on and off. Note that this is a system-wide IME, so as long as you have a window active that takes text, this should work.

Disclaimer: I know zero Korean, so I can't say how easy the IME is to use.

I think it might be better if I just use this website:

Now I have to go back to learning Korean/Hangul

I'm declaring this solved.
