uim-toolbar-gtk-systray will show nothing if you don't have notification
area applet. But, before trying to notification area applet, you should
try to uim applet for gnome.

1. Install uim-appet-gnome by apt-get (or aptitude?)
2. Right click on the panel
3. Select "Add to Panel..."
4. Select uim applet, then press 'Add' button.

If you are using Sid or Sarge, it will work.
