I can't even remember where the option for changing the key combination
is!  The toolbar applet doesn't seem to work very well so I just use the
key combination.

My .gnomerc file looks like this: (there are a couple of lines commented
out from when I was fiddling around trying to get it working.)
export GTK_IM_MODULE=uim-anthy
export XMODIFIERS=@im=uim-anthy
#export LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"
#export LC_CTYPE="ja_JP.UTF-8"
exec uim-helper-toolbar-gtk-systray&
exec uim-xim&

I don't seem to have a .uim file, but this is the last entry in
"uim-default" "uim-default (*)" "gtk+" "" "*"
"uim-anthy" "uim-anthy (ja)" "gtk+" "" "ja"

These might be helpful:

There's also an english language UIM mailing list run by the developers
somewhere .

Good luck!
