I asked this question in a few places but nobody replied. I'm not sure if Japanese SE is the right place to ask but I'll give it a try.

In Linux I input Japanese with mozc-fcitx. However, I don't seem to find any way to configure it. By default, full-width characters are entered, which affect even spaces. Is there a way to configure mozc-fcitx to input half-width characters by default?

  • The right place would probably be Super User, I think, but we've been allowing this sort of question on our meta site. That's not really what meta is supposed to be for, but as long as our community wants to use our meta this way, we can keep allowing this sort of question.

  • Since you are running Linux, I think the right place would be askubuntu.com or unix.stackexchange.com.

As pointed out by @Qing, the command /usr/lib/mozc/mozc_tool --mode=config_dialog launches mozc settings. It's not well integrated into the ibus or fcitx UI though and thus is hard to find.
