iBus installed an enabled by default for users which installed OS in any
this language:
ja_JP ko_KR zh_CN zh_TW

If you have other language than this, and want to enable ibus anyway, you
can edit file

Logout-login, and iBus will work. At least it working for me :))

However, skype do not want to take japanese input, only copy-paste from
other program like Kate or else.
Maybe it's due to skype is linux app.

BTW, could you run this:
cat /usr/local/kde4/share/config/kdm/kdmrc | grep '^Language='
And show it to me?
