Scim/Skim not working with Kate

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I'm trying to teach myself Japanese. :banghead: So, naturally, I signed up at a Japanese social website for language practice. Now, all I need is to be able to type in Japanese. I followed the instructions at this site, and everything seems to work. Everything, that is, except kate. Every other app works fine (even the terminal). But when I press enter to confirm my choice of hiragana/katakana/kanji in kate, the characters just vanish as though they were never there. I've tried reinstalling kate without any success. (HowTos)
