Configure

After installing new input methods packages, launch fcitx5-configtool from command or tray menu. There should be a message with button that allows to reload or restart Fcitx 5 to make new input method engines ready to use. This only applies to non-flatpak Fcitx 5.

For older flatpak version, you will need to restart manually. The restart function in Flatpak-based fcitx 5 will not reload the sandbox, thus new extension package will still not be visible. You must fully quit Fcitx and launch a new instance to make it load the new flatpak extension package.

Since 5.0.16, "restart" will be able to launch a new updated flatpak version, just like the regular one.
