chinese input SCIM -d doesn't work

I am sorry that I need to start a new thread regarding the Chinese input.
I have already installed Chinese support on my Fedora Core 4 (Session: Gnome). I have also intalled SCIM following the instruction I have also done the configuration following the System configuration page.

But the scim website doesn't instruct me how to start using SCIM in other applications. I searched again, and find that I need to run scim -d and then start an application, then press Ctrl+Space to invoke the SCIM input bar.
However, when i start scim -d, it just stuck there. The attached is the script.
When i open an gedit, type some English, then press Ctrl+Space to input Chinese. However, nothing happened as expected, no chinese input bar appears. When i type, english characters appear instead of Chinese characters.

Could you help me?
