The CJK input methods are not installed on the LiveCD, because they take
a lot of space, which we don't have. However, it is possible to install
them in the running session and they should be immediately available
after installation and following IBus configuration if you run it in a
CJK locale. (IBus does not require a restart to activate the changes.)
