Welcome to the UbuntuKylin bbs of the UbuntuKylin Desktop TeamThe objective of the UbuntuKylin project is to create a variant of Ubuntu that is more suitable for Chinese users. We are committed to provide you with a delicate, thoughtful and fully customized Chinese user experience out-of-the-box. For instance, by providing a desktop user interface localized in Chinese and installing common software that Chinese users commonly use by default. We are applying to be an official recognition as a formal member of the Ubuntu family, commencing with UbuntuKylin 13.04.

Weather Indicator: The weather forecast information from China meterological administration, provide effective references for your daily life and travel.
Chinese Input Method: As you known, both fcitx and iBus are wonderful Chinese input methods, while we decide to choose fcitx as the default due to following reasons:
it is the first Chinese input method in open source community since 2002, and it has lots of fans in China, especially guys using Wubi method.
it provides more efficient and intelligent input experience.
it provides skin options and more developing input engines, such as cloud-pinyin and google-pinyin.
Compatibility between Fcitx and Unity is improving gradually. E.g., the latest update of NUX makes it possible to input Chinese words in Dash.
Fans are working to make it better, such as GTK+ show, Indicator show, etc.
