startup SCIM fine but ctrl-space does nothing

I have installed scim, scim-tables-zh, skim, scim-gtk2-immodule. And add the ~/.xinitrc. It contains
export LC_CTYPE="en_HK"
export XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM"
export GTK_IM_MODULE="scim"
export QT_IM_MODULE="scim"
scim -d
After rebooting computer, It can load skim(scim -d) The icon is showed. But CTRL-SPACE does nothing. I try installing qt4-qtconfig. But the problem still unsolves. I trouble in this problem for a long time. I can't type chinese. Could anyone tell me what's wrong here?
[I'm using Debian]

I have been looking into this during the morning and have a temporary solution that will get us by for now.

If you open gedit (I am using gnome) and right click in the text window you should be given the option for different input methods. Choose scim and I can write Chinese. I then copy and paste into openoffice (in this case). A little more configuration should get me telling open office which input method to use.

It's a little odd, in Debian stable scim worked 'fresh from the repository'
