how to use ibus in urxvt in fvwm
I use fedora 15,my shortcut key for ibus is shift+space,when i in gnome, i press this key in urxvt, i can use ibus;
but , when i switch to fvwm,when i use urxvt, i press this shortcut key, but I cannot use ibus!there is something that when i use chrome and gnome-terminal in fvwm,when i press this key i can use ibus!
i've try my best to do the flowing:
1、in .Xresource,i add Rxvt.inputMethod: ibus
2、in .bashrc i add
export GTK_IM_MODULE="ibus"
export QT_IM_MODULE="ibus"
export XMODIFIERS=”@im=ibus”
3、in .xinitrc i add the same as .bashrc too
but i still can't use ibus in urxvt!
is there any other method?

I'm not using Fedora, or Gnome. The iBus post install instructions with Gentoo state:

Set the following in your user startup scripts
such as .xinitrc, .xsession or .xprofile:
    export XMODIFIERS="@im=ibus"
    export GTK_IM_MODULE="ibus"
    export QT_IM_MODULE="xim"
    ibus-daemon -d -x

You do not have:

ibus-daemon -d -x
That is required for Fluxbox. Maybe it is required for fvwm also. If you try those
changes, logout of X and then restart X for them to take effect.

The following attachments show my settings for iBus to use Chinese Pinyin input.

If this doesn't solve your problem you might have a bug with iBus. Please contact
the iBus Project. The developers work for RedHat and can help you.

Maybe try the iBus Startup Trouble Shooting page.

I only add "ibus-daemon &" in my .bash_profile before, then I replace this with "ibus-daemon -d -x",now ,i can use ibus in urxvt in fvwm!
