Well....when I login from the console everything needed to use the input
methods is already started.  No need to manually start anything...

I've always installed my system with multi-language support from the
start.  So, I've not looked into how all these do get started.

I would make sure these are already started when you first login before
assuming you need to launch manually.

Yes, it sounds like your issue is actually with scim. 

I would also make sure you have a symbolic link in your home directory....

 .xinputrc -> /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim.conf
