After trying this, it didn't seem to work...

And wandering through this, I got to the page "対応アプリケーション",
which didn't list xterm as tested. I installed mlterm, which worked
fine. Further investigation revealed that the entry
	*.inputMethod: kinput2
in my .Xresources was overriding $XMODIFIERS.

A little more mucking around, and I've got prime working as in input
system, with only the minor disappointments that I can't see a way to
change the activation key, I can't see a way to make it work without
$LC_ALL=ja_JP.eucJP, and there is no visible indication that I've
activated it until I type. This last one is as much due to the
difference in input between kinput2 (with its multiple modes of input)
and uim-prime, which is (as far as I can tell) on or off.

And the left-right arrows don't do anything when its activated.

I can see that I can tune some of this with ~/.uim based on the stuff in
/usr/share/uim/, and in fact there's examples on the uim site. :-)

I'm still trying to work out what the various other uim-* binaries and
uim-gnome-applet's file do, but I suspect that running blackbox means
they're pretty much unhelpful to me... Especially the Gnome applet. :-)

If I get time, I may decided to see if I can arrange a dock-type applet
(if it's simple :-) for blackbox, although I'd then have to kill

Thankyou for your help. :-)
