Nabi is a simple way to type korean on your linux box. With a simple key switch you can change your keyboard from english to korean. The application stays on your menu panel and notifies you which input you are using.
A Korean X input method server plus imhangul status monitor
0.15-2: amd64 i386 powerpc. In addition, it shows the status of imhangul (GTK+ 2 input module) in System Tray (i.e. Notification Area).

If this sounds like something you would want to use then heres the install:
sudo apt-get install nabi

Now restart. Everything you turn on your system it will automatically start the nabi application.

If you do not wish to restart just yet then Press alt+f2 and type nabi.

The nabi butterfly icon will show up on the panel. Right click it to change its settings.

The way i have mine set up is under “Hangul” tab, i added left shift to switch in and out between the two languages.

I tested this on ubuntu, linux mint 9/10rc and mint fluxbox.
