Ctrl+space couldn't activate scim

Dear friends,

I am using fc6 and have installed scim.
In terminal, i can start scim by typing scim in terminal with the following respond:
# scim
Smart Common Input Method 1.4.4

Launching a SCIM daemon with Socket FrontEnd...
Loading simple Config module ...
Creating backend ...
Loading socket FrontEnd module ...
Starting SCIM as daemon ...
Launching a SCIM process with x11...
Loading socket Config module ...
Creating backend ...
Loading x11 FrontEnd module ...
GTK Panel of SCIM 1.4.4

Starting SCIM ...

On the right hand bottom corner, it appears a grey scim icon which gives me the following options:
SCIM Setup
Reload configuration
Stick Windows
Hide toolbars

The next thing i thought i am supposed to do is simply clicked Ctrl+space that would activate scim at the bottom panel, however it ain't so. I tried CTrl+space many times the proper panel for SCIM input simply didnt appear....

Is there anything which i did wrongly that might have caused the problem? I followed this site when i tried to startup scim:

should work..but not for me...anyone face similar problem before? i think i miss out something stupid....but i cannto figure out...i alerady followed step by step...please help me if you know..thanks a lot for taking time helping...
