i think you need to install from the source; install things in the right order - like, anthy, scim, and scim-anthy... etc etc. and do take care of ./configure and make and check if there is no error while compiling.

another thing is that sometimes i found it better to compile everything afresh. so say, if i found an error during compiling, and during make, i would delete the whole file first and re-extract the same file again from the source. make clean does not clean things correctly sometimes. i don't know. but that's what i found. and i often found it better this way and installations proceed smoothely.

take a look at this site. it might help you.

good luck
