@kitty867@hmaarrfk is totally right, starting Fedora 18 there is a built-in Chinese method provided in GNOME using ibus. Just follow the steps he provided. However if you run a previous version, there is

@hmaarrfk@baptistemm Input method may be the problem when I uninstalled input method, it will not appear [Invalid UTF-8], but in accordance with the @hmaarrfk argument, I still can not input Chinese characters. My version is fedora19. The latest version is a bit cumbersome, especially for us Chinese people, a lot of support in place, many things need to explore their own

You didn't need to answer to say that. Just comment saying that the comment would be better off as an answer :)

Thank you for reminding me, in fact, I am a Chinese student, English is not very good, I'm using google translator to get help. Only by understanding keyword.

You can run

sudo yum history list | grep Erase

to list transaction that erase packages. And for those IDs run

sudo yum history info id (replace id with IDs you get from previous command)

to see the packages that have been removed. And you can analyse those packages with

yum info package1 (replace package1 with package name)

to see whether those packages are related to input method. It is probably related to ibus or something like that. If you find this complicated you can simply run

sudo yum history undo id (replace id with IDs you get from previous command)

to reinstall those packages that have been removed.

Run man yum to get more help on yum.

Is SCIM necessary? I think Gnome-Shell has built in Pinyin method. Settings->Region & Language (the Flag) -> Input Sources -> "The + at the bottom" -> Chinese (China) -> Chinese (Intelligent Pinyin)
