    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I use Japanese input in OpenSuSE 11.2 regularly. If you install Japanese as a language (a secondary language, if you'd prefer English to be your first), all the fonts and the IME (SCIM) will be installed for you. I'm not in front of my Linux box at the moment and won't be for a week or so, but somewhere in YaST is a some kind of "international"/"language"-type option. You just add your required language and keyboard settings from there.

    Once SCIM is installed, you can choose from various types of input methods. I generally use "Anthy". If you have a Japanese keyboard, the language-specific keys (zenkaku/hankaku, hiragana/katakana etc) should all work.

    By the way, if you're using Dolphin in KDE, as I am, you might encounter a weird bug related to SCIM. If you try to rename a file in Dolphin, it won't leave the original filename there for you to edit; instead it will blank the filename completely, which isn't much help if you only want to change one or two characters. This has already been reported on the KDE Bugzilla site, so may even be fixed by now.
