FCITX failed to input on VECTOR linux 4.3!


Just downloaded FCITX
( Free Chinese Input Toy of X, an input method for Linux,"")

from "", followed its read-me to install step by step as:
#tar jxvf fctx-3.0.1.tar.bz2
#cd fcitx-3.0.1
#make install

3.then add a few lines in its current directory /home/~/ .bashrc :
export LANG=zh_CN
export XMODIFIERS="@im=fcitx"
export XIM=fcitx
export XIM_PROGRAM=fcitx

Finally, when I pressed "CTRL+Space Key", fcitx window didn't appear at all. then went to Console "fcitx", Fcitx did come out , disappointedly no chink characters appeared at input windows of fcitx ,nothing chink being inputed......

Does that imply more font sets need to be installed?how should I do with it?

has anyone been running FCITX succesffuly on vector4.0/4.3?if so ,would you be kindly share your tips with us?
