Ok, first of, I´ve read all the documentation and searched everywere and I 
couln´t find any solution to this problem. I followed the instalation 
instructions more than once and on different versions of skim and no luck.
Here is what I´ve installed:

I created a .Xclients file with the following contents:
export GTK_IM_MODULE=scim
export LC_CTYPE="zh_CN.GBK"

LC_TYPE exactlly as in the documentation but I guess it could be changed.
I checked and all these environment variables are correctly loaded.

In any GTK+ app I can write in japanese without problems at all, it works 
great, the panel displays the imput methods and everything is fine. But in 
any KDE app it just doesn´t work.

I tried to start skim directlly or manually as in the docs, always the same.
The processes running are these:

fran at ukyo fran $ ps ax |grep scim

21957 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/lib/scim-1.0/scim-launcher-daemon kconfig all 
socket 0 none stderr --no-stay
21959 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/lib/scim-1.0/scim-launcher-daemon socket 
socket x11 0 none stderr
21962 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/bin/skim --np skimplugin_scim -c socket -o 
none -d --no-stay
21963 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/skim --np skimplugin_scim -c socket -o 
none -d --no-stay
21964 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/skim --np skimplugin_scim -c socket -o 
none -d --no-stay

I really don´t know what else to look at, the system tray menu keeps blank. 
Maybe you see were I´m going wrong, since it´s a mistery to me. I´ve been 
hours trying to find a solution. So if anyone can find a solution I will 
really appreciate it.
Thank you very much
