Japanese Input with Karmic?

Does anybody here use Japanese input as a secondary language?
My computer was installed using the default English language, but I need to converse with Japanese people on a regular basis. So, I went into the System->Administration->Language Support just like I did on all the versions of Ubuntu. But SCIM does not seem to be popped up any more. When I press Ctrl-Space... nothing. Right now while in Firefox, scim says that anthy is active... does this look like Japanese. Not to me either.
In order to get any Japanese support, I have to go into GEdit. Pressing Ctrl-space does not work, but I can right click and select Input Methods->SCIM Input Method, and presto, romanji is converted into にほんご (Japanese). I can then paste that into my Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice, etc. So its not a language support issue, its an input issue. I need to write to our Tokyo office and need this to work.
Before filing a bug... Can someone else confirm or tell me how they got theirs to work?
