Either one will work, as far as I know. (Not tested on Debian in years
by me, so can't be sure.)
While scim is probably still the most popular, there's uim, as Yamana
san mentions--Fedora now has something else installed by default, I've
forgotten its name--it didn't work properly for me, (Surprise!
Something doesn't work right in Fedora), AH--it's called ibus.  I don't
know if it's in Debian or simply one more of Fedora's, Let's bloat the
system making this installed as a dependency of everything and of
course, not give any docs about it.
