How to write in japanese. Skim?


Hi all,
I use Debian testing /etch/ with KDE 3.5. I'd like to be able to use japanese characters when writing. I've read a bit and I've install skim. Here's an output:

------------------------
dpkg -l |grep scim
ii libscim8c2a 1.4.4-1 library for SCIM platform
ii scim 1.4.4-1 smart common input method platform
ii scim-anthy 0.9.0-1 SCIM IMEngine module for Anthy
ii scim-canna 0.1.3-1+b1 SCIM IMEngine module for Canna
ii scim-modules-table 0.5.6-1 generic tables IM engine module for SCIM pla
ii scim-tables-ja 0.5.6-1 Japanese input method data tables for SCIM p
------------------------

and

------------------------
dpkg -l |grep skim
ii libskim0 1.4.4-1 skim runtime library
ii skim 1.4.4-1 smart common input method platform for KDE
------------------------


As a result of installing skim I can see a beautiful icon on the TrayBar. I can open it with the right mouse button and then make changes with Configure. But the problem is I still can't use japanese characters :| As I've seen in the Configure menu, I should change english/japanese with Ctrl+Space. But it doesn't work :|

Please let me know what am I doing wrong or what else should be done/installed in order to can change english/japanese writing with Ctrl+Space.


Thanks a lot

If you left click does a list a languages pop up or do you get a little blank gray bar? For me to get it working I have to right click in an input area(like this quick reply box) and choose select input method > XIM. the press ctrl space.

I use scim for Chinese input and I need to do the following before ctl+space activation, I think you need to do something similar for skim, you are advised to check scim wiki site, www.scim-im.org :

PHP Code:
export LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8
export LC_CTYPE
=zh_CN.UTF-8
export XMODIFIERS
=@im=SCIM
export GTK_IM_MODULE
=scim
export QT_IM_MODULE
=scim
