fcitx5-configtool is a Qt-based GUI tool that provides user friendly configuration interface for Fcitx 5. It comes with two different implemenation, QWidget based one, which is accessible via fcitx5-config-qt, or KCM/Kirigami2 based one, which can be found with in Plasma systemsettings. Though they have different user interface, the functionality is same.
fcitx5-configtool that comes with Fcitx 5 is actually a script that will automatically detect your desktop environment and launch the corresponding implementation within fcitx5-configtool package.
Although Fcitx 5 will do some basic configuration based on your system locale and keyboard layout, you may still want to check and add or remove input method via
fcitx5-configtool to fit your own needs. Check Input method engines for the input method engines that are available for Fcitx 5.
Adding new input method
In Kirigami 2 version, click "Add Input Method..." button at lower right corner, and select input method to add. In Qt Widgets version, click input method from the panel on the right, then either double click, or click the add button (left arrow) in the middle column.
Remove input methods
In Kirigami 2 version, click the remove button at the end of the input method item. In Qt Widgets version, click input method from the panel on the left, then either double click, or click the remove button (right arrow) in the middle column.
Reordering input methods
In Kirigami 2 version, drag and drop the item with the handle on the left. In Qt Widgets version, click on the input method from the panel on the left, then click move up or move down button in the middle column.
Change the key to switch input methods
Go to global options and check the hotkey configuration there.
You may also want to check the Input method selector addon if you want more customization.
Changing candidate window font size
If you are using Kimpanel, you need to find font option from Kimpanel's own configuration UI, such option is not accessible from fcitx5-configtool. If you are using Classic UI, you may go to addons tab or click Configure addons..., then click on the configure button for Classic User Interface.
