Default OpenBSD 5.4 on yeeloong : input method problem

Hi, I'm new in this forum.
I hope this is the right place
I have installed OpenBSD 5.4-release on my yeeloong machine, I can't to use SCIM for input chinese characters.
Packages installed: scim, scum-pinyin, zh-wqy-zenhei-ttf (from the packages repository, not from ports)
my related .xinitric config
Code:
export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
export GTK_IM_MODULE="scim"
export QT_IM_MODULE="scim"
export XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM"
/usr/local/bin/scim -d
cwm
I only use windows manager, cwm, and dwm
X start without problem but when I click Ctrl-Space SCIM don't show the input windows.
If in a terminal I do
Code:
$ scim -d 
Smart Common Input Method 1.4.9

Launching a SCIM daemon with Socket FrontEnd…
Loading simple Config module …
Creating backend …
Loading socket FrontEnd module …
Starting SCIM as daemon …
Launching a SCIM process with x11…
Loading socket Config module …
Creating backend …
Loading x11 FrontEnd module …
GTK Panel of SCIM 1.4.9

Starting SCIM as daemon
SCIM has been successfully launched.
So I don't understand where is my mistake.
Everything look ok… but scim input window don't appear and I can't input chinese characters.
In the forum I've not found thread about this arguments. I've posted the same problem in a chinese *BSD forum but the indication is config properly the .xinitric like above, like I have done, so I still have this problem unresolved.
The only related thing, I think, is: when I run scum-setup it run properly but show my a Keyboard Layout: Unknow. If I set the kbd layout to English (US) I need to restart scim in order the configuration take effect, but when restart scim don't recognize the kbd again.
Any suggestion is very appreciate
I apologize for my bad english

Try setting an exporting these environment variables in your .profile file instead of .xinitrc.

@J65nko: Thank's for you reply. I've tried but without result. Really I don't understand where is the mistake.
BTW: where is the scim man page?

Per pkg_info(1) -L option, the scim application does not have a man page. However, there is a document for OpenBSD installed in /usr/local/share/doc/pkg-readmes/ which may help.

@jggimi: Hi and thank you for your help. I read it but does not help. The instructions is put everything in .xinitrc and is what I did.
I don't know if the problem is due to the fact that scim does not recognize the keyboard … and if is, I don't understand why.
I googled a lot but but what I found is equal to my configuration

You might reach out to the port maintainer, Kevin Lo. His Email address is available from pkg_info(1) or from the $MAINTAINER field in the ports tree: inputmethods/scim/Makefile.

For clarity, I will repeat what I posted in your snapshot thread, regarding the port maintainer for scim, Kevin Lo, and obtaining additional help.

Kevin may not have an answer, or may not have seen your Email. He may not have your architecture available.

Posting to the ports@ mailing list may permit others to assist you. See http://www.openbsd.org/mail.html
