We have just updated the English wiki of fcitx recently. It still lack
some detail description of certain engines (e.g. pinyin) but simply
install the packages and set environment variables according to the
arch wiki should make it works just fine. Would you mind describing
your problem (maybe on fcitx at googlegroups.com) so that we can help
with it and probably add it to wiki?

We are also aware of our poor documentation and is trying to improve
that both on our own wiki[1] and on the user interface.

THX for the suggestion.
