It's already included in the Universe component of the Ubuntu
repository, although the version number 1.0.2 is a little outdated.

I second Ed Trager's opinion that SCIM is currently the best choice for
IME. I have not experienced any major stability problems with version
1.0.2 that comes with Hoary and Breezy.

Usage guide: http://www.mrbass.org/linux/ubuntu/scim/

For Chinese input, you only need the following packages:

$ sudo apt-get install scim-gtk2-immodule scim-chinese scim-tables-zh
