You might need to logout and login again.

  First, go to “Language Support”, make sure the “Chinese(simplified)” or “Chinese Traditional”(or both) is installed completely.

    Go to “Input Method”, make sure you select “ibus” as the selected user configuration. An user logout may be required.

    Go to “Settings -> Region & Language”, in the “Input Sources” section, add the “Chinese(Intelligent Pinyin)” input method.
