about New Features in Lubuntu 15.10

fcitx is a dependency of lubuntu-desktop, which is not a package that
contains anything of importance except an index of packages. If you try to
remove fcitx, it will try to remove lubuntu-desktop, which seems alarming,
but it's not. You can safely remove it. The only problem comes when
lubuntu-desktop's configuration changes (in some future version) and you
don't necessarily get those changes with, say, a dist-upgrade. That being
said, I would advise just leaving it alone and using gcin instead.

On the other hand, I would really encourage you to use fcitx, because in
the near future, Lubuntu will use LXQt and will not ship with any GTK+
libraries. gcin requires GTK+, so installing that will require a rather
larger footprint. On the other hand, there is a Qt front end for fcitx, so
it could work with this future Lubuntu natively.

Hope that helps!
