Urk. Have you checked out the archives (are they working today ;)? This 
is an oft asked and answered question on this list.

The answer boils down to this: input in X is application-specific, not 
global to a Window Manager.

E.g. if I want to be able to input Japanese in Mozilla Mail, I do 
something like:

kinput2 -canna &
LANG=ja_JP mozilla -mail &

Ya dig?
