Typesetting Japanese


I am trying to print something in Japanese, but am having trouble with
both LaTeX and OpenOffice.

In LaTeX, I downloaded the packages specified at
http://www.physics.wustl.edu/~alford/tex/japanese_latex.html including
cjk-latex, hbf-kanji48, latex-cjk-japanese and
latex-cjk-japanese-wadalab.  And I included the same \usepackage
commands, and even used the provided templates.  And running "latex" or
"pdflatex" with a JIS or Shift-JIS file showed the same output as on
that page.  But latex ignored the Japanese, just treating it as a few
broken Roman characters to lay out, e.g. throwing errors when it
encountered an _ character.

In OpenOffice, I can't figure out how to get a Japanese input method to
work.  I installed openoffice.org-l10n-ja.  But how do I specify that I
want to input Japanese?  I set my Asian input language to Japanese, but
can't get to it.  And View | Input Method Status does not do anything
noticeable.  It seems that in Ubuntu, the iiimgcf package is required
for OOo Japanese input, but there's only iiimecf in Debian, ref:

Any ideas?
