 I  managed  to get it all working: using kon, jvim-canna and canna I am
now able to input hiragana and convert it to katakana or kanji. The ano­
ther  problem  that  arouse,  is  --  jvim  doesn't  use  any additional
programs, to communicate w/ server. The command for  ->kanji  conversion
is ctrl-space, but I wonder if there are another ones available (i.e., a
key for instant ->katakana conversion, or so...). I also wonder if I can
make jvim use kinput2-canna while in X... it doesn't seem to use it, and
I cannot test kinput2 -- krxvt doesn't let me input Japanese in the com­
mand  line  (or  is there an option for it?), and other 'Japanese aware'
progs I have are xjdic and kdrill -- useless in this situation...

 Count me in :) At least, a short info or translation of questions...

Bye, and thanks for all the help!
