Method 2 macOS

2. Click System Preferences

3. Click International. It’s the blue flag with a white map inside.

4. Select the Input Menu tab from the drop-down menu. It’s located at the very top of the window. A drop-down menu with language selections will appear.

5. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and check the box next to “Hangul.” You’ll see a number of options listed beneath it.

6. Select “2-Set Korean” from the drop-down menu. You will not be required to select any of the other options in order to type in Korean.

7. Change to the Korean keyboard/input method. When you’re ready to begin typing, select 2-Set Korean from the drop-down menu that appears when you click your country’s flag icon in the top-right corner of the screen.

Method 3 Linux

1. Open the command prompt window. It is required for the installation of the ibus-hangul package. Typically, the command line is represented by a black screen icon labelled Terminal on most Linux operating systems.

2. Install the ibus-hangul package to get started. When using Debian or Ubuntu, this is accomplished through the package manager, which is apt on some platforms and yum on others. To instal ibus-hangul on Ubuntu or Debian, run sudo apt-get instal ibus-hangul. This will instal the package as well as any dependencies that are required. When it asks you if you want to proceed, type Y (for “Yes” in the keyboard.

3. Im-config should be run. Im-config should be entered into the command line. If you see the “Do you explicitly select the user configuration?” prompt, always click OK and yes when the “Do you explicitly select the user configuration?” prompt appears. This will enable the computer to recognise that you have a new input method by adjusting its behaviour.

4. Restart the computer. For whatever reason, it won’t notice the change if you don’t.

5. Open the (system) settings (usually has a picture of a gear or wrench or some other tools) and go to the section where you can select input sources. Depending on the platform, it is called something like Text Entry, Language & Input or just Input Sources.

Some Linux configurations necessitate the use of “IBus Parameters” rather than your system’s default configurations in order to function properly. Check your system’s menus to see if you have the “IBus Parameters” option available. If you opened the system settings and didn’t see the Hangul input source in the next step, it’s likely that you should have opened the IBus settings rather than the system settings.

6. Add the Hangul input source. To do this, click on the + symbol or Add under the list of input sources. A new window which shows all possible input sources will appear. Search for “Korean”. Select the Korean (Hangul) option, which was not there before you installed the ibus-hangul package, and add it.

7. Remember to activate “Hangul mode”. When you switch to the Korean keyboard and type something, you will first see Latin letters. To actually type in Hangul, click on the input source selection menu (which you used to switch to the Korean keyboard) and click on Hangul Mode. Now, you can type in Hangul.
