I cant see any input method in the fcitx-configtool in i3 wm, it works fine in kde why?

Basic info:

i3 version:
i3 version 4.18.2 (2020-07-26) © 2009 Michael Stapelberg and contributors

As the image shows I can see no input method in the fcitx-configtool. Why this happened?

It works fine in kde.

Hello and welcome,

Where do you keep the variables? In ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xprofile ?
The last is preferred AFAIK.
Some people prefer to use ~/.profile tho
Make sure you have this entry in your i3 config
exec --no-startup-id fcitx -d

When you run fcitx-configtool from terminal you also have to make sure there is a Mozc input method there.
Try running fcitx-diagnose from terminal (detected issues will be marked in red - something like that)

Thank you bro.

I add the content into the .xinitrc and all works fine.

export GTK_IM_MODULE=fcitx
export QT_IM_MODULE=fcitx
export XMODIFIERS=@im=fcitx
exec i3
