Information
kimpanel is in the kdeplasma-addons part of the KDE SC 4.4(.x) release, so you should update your system to KDE SC 4.4.x, install kimpanel via package manager.


For Kubuntu 9.10 + KDE SC 4.4.x:

sudo apt-get install plasma-widget-kimpanel

Right click desktop, choose add widgets, place the kimpanel Plasmoid (possibly named "Input Method Panel") wherever you prefer.

cd fcitx
./configure --prefix=/usr && make && sudo make install

ibus

Install ibus as usual. Then

For Kubuntu 9.10 + KDE SC 4.4.x:

  • install kimpanel-backend-ibus
sudo apt-get install plasma-widget-kimpanel-backend-ibus
  • open systemsettings -> autostart, add
ibus-daemon --panel=/usr/lib/ibus/ibus-ui-kde

Note
ibus requires ibus-qt or ibus-qt4 to input special characters in KDE/Qt applications. (I doubt it --- there is XIM still.)


If the kimpanel Plasmoid is absent, please check $QT_IM_MODULE and set that to ibus.
