1. Install scim-chinese (it will pull in some depending packages).
2. set you locale to any UTF-8 locale.
3. set LC_CTYPE to either zh_TW.UTF-8 or zh_CN.UTF-8 for Mozilla, 
OpenOffice and other software to 'recognize' chinese input.
5. start scim in your X session
6. you will see a scim panel popping up. configure scim via the panel.
7. to actually key in chinese (pinyin), toggle with CRTL+SPACE
8. choose Simple Chinese as input method in scim
9. type :)
