OK, I compiled kterm-6.2.0 myself now. It seems to support XIM by
default, therefore I think it is unlikely that the JRPM people messed
this up.

There seems to be no difference between the kterm-6.2.0 which I
compiled myself and the kterm-6.2.0 from the Japanese RPM project.

In both cases Japanese input works with the kinput protocol, but
nothing happens with XIM.

I have the same problem with rxvt configured with support for XIM:

    ./configure  --prefix=/opt/stow/rxvt-2.7.2 --enable-everything --enable-languages --enable-xim --enable-xterm-scroll

but nevertheless XIM doesn't seem to work with rxvt.

XIM works well in XEmacs and even in Mozilla-M13. When I press the
`Kanji'-key, in XEmacs and Mozilla-M13, I can see in the debugging of
`kinput2' that something happens. With kterm-6.2.0 and rxvt, nothing
at all appears in the debugging output of `kinput2'.  Therefore I
guess that my setup of kinput2, Canna, and the glibc-locale is correct
now and the problem is on the side of kterm and rxvt.

Does XIM work for you in kterm and/or rxvt?
