I had quite a struggle with this for my granddaughter.  It is documented on 
the OpenOffice.org mailing list:

<http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/SearchList?list=users&searchText=scim+input&defaultField=subject&Search=Search>

That is actually the end of a very long saga.  I think that I had installed 
scim and skim before that thread started.

The final result is that my granddaughter can now type on a UK keyboard, in a 
British English installation of Kubuntu, and get Kana or Kanji, but only in 
K* applications.  However this is not too restricting, as she can cut and 
paste from, say, KWord into OpenOffice.org Write and the correct Japanese 
characters remain.
