I fully installed scim and its input method packages, but I cannot make it show up the panel to choose an input method. Please help

Is scim still maintained at all? Most Linux distributions eventually abandoned it for ibus, which was then abandoned for fcitx. I have a page at http://srobb.net/jpninpt.html that includes using ibus for Japanese input in OpenBSD-5.7. I have no idea if it will be useful for you to try it instead of scim, but it's the only suggestion I have. :-(

If one likes the look of SCIM, UIM has a similar appearance. At least the gtk versions. I have never seen the qt versions. Ibus may or may not be good with OpenBSD, depending on which languages are to be used. For example it looks like any of the input platforms can used with Japanese, but OpenBSD's Ibus is not the best choice for Chinese. The bottom line is you may need to change input systems, depending on intended use.

Unfortunately, Vietnamese input package for ibus won't compile on OpenBSD. Scim is the only choice for me
