• About building in a Japanese environment

    Hi there
    In the virtual environment of the VMware Workstation 12 Pro, I want to create a virtual machine to install the Antergos-2016.02.21-x86_64.iso.
    Construction of the Japanese environment (display and construction of Japanese input system in Japanese), either would be possible.
    Thank you.

  • Hi!

    Have you tried it? I don’t quite understand what’s your question exactly.

    Try it and if you encounter an issue feel free to ask here.


  • I received your reply, thank you.
    As Japanese input system, you want to install the fcitx-mozc.
    In addition, if you have a problem occurs, we would like to ask questions.
    Thank you all!

  • You can choose the locale (language interface) when installing Antergos.
    If you want to change the locale after installation check out this Arch-wiki:


    If you just want to be able to use the Japanese language but use your own (if other than Japanese) locale, or if changing between Japanese and English or other language, install fcitx-mozc or Ibus with Anthy and or Mozc. Make sure you install some Japanese font packages and all dependencies.


    Some desktop environments such as LXQt, Plasma and others I am sure, offer a graphic locale selector.
    You can find Locale mostly in Settings.

  • @pure If you’re going to do this, please write down everything you do. This would be a fantastic article for our wiki.

  • I use both the Japanese and English environments in Virtualbox and on my laptop without problem. Never used VMware but I guess it is the same.

  • Never used VMware but I guess it is the same

    Some users have reported having problems testing Antergos in vmware…

  • I received your polite reply, Thank you very much.
    So it will be helpful.
    Thank you in the future.

    I’ve always wanted to add an option in Cnchi for Japanese… I’ll add it to our todo list.
