I've just installed ibus-pinyin and ibus and configured it and it worked properly. What's the issue you are getting?

That's an issue about the gtk gui, but doesn't tell anything about an issue with ibus itself. Does it prevent it from working or is it just that it prints the annoying error.
Also what command are you running from the terminal?

I get a different error message when clicking preferences of the "Chinese - Pinyin" Input Method, but they are all warnings and it doesn't prevent me from opening the dialog and changing configurations. They are all warnings.

This is my output:

/usr/share/ibus-pinyin/setup/ PyGIWarning: Gtk was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.
  from gi.repository import Gtk
/usr/share/ibus-pinyin/setup/ PyGIWarning: IBus was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('IBus', '1.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.
  from gi.repository import IBus
/usr/share/ibus-pinyin/setup/ DeprecationWarning: bind_textdomain_codeset() is deprecated
  gettext.bind_textdomain_codeset("ibus-pinyin", "UTF-8")

Did you install the package ibus and then reboot?

I can confirm the issue happens in GNOME. I had been testing it in Xfce and there it works properly. I think it should be a missing dependency

Found the solution. For some reason GNOME desktop doesn't work properly with ibus-setup, you need to configure pinyin from the gnome settings. It does work in Xfce though

After installing ibus-pinyin and ibus-gtk3 (and restart, otherwise it won't appear as an input method), go to gnome settings -> keyboard and in "Input Sources" click the '+' sign -> click the three dots -> "Other" and finally select "Chinese (Pinyin)"

Additionally you can install the package ibus-libpinyin, which enables the input method "Chinese intelligent Pinyin", which includes more options inside the preferences (preferences for non intelligent pinyin still don't work)
