In Karmic we have switched to IBus, since SCIM upstream is dead.
IBus is installed by default, you just need to do the following:

1. in System->Administration->Language Support set your Keyboard input
method to 'ibus'.
2. restart your X session, i.e. log out and in again.
3. in System->Administration->IBus Preferences go to the Input Method
tab and select Japanese-Anthy. Click Add to add it to your preferred
list of input methods.
4. IBus is now usable. Simply hit Crtl-Space to toggle Japanese input
method in the application you want.
