If you can not type in Vietnamese after installation, try turning off all the editing applications. Right-click on the Unikey icon and select Restart. For languages like Vietnamese or Japanese or Chinese, finding software that supports typing in Linux is pretty tedious. Even IBus-Unikey is not 100% stable, according to my personal assessment.
