I tried the above, but it didn't work for me. The only thing which works
reliably is (which is in my ~/.bash_profile):

# ibus
# source:
export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim
export address@hidden
export QT_IM_MODULE=xim

Note that this configuration is deemed wrong by ibus' maintainer:

My daemon is started in my ~/.ratpoisonrc file like this:

exec ibus-daemon --xim

I've used ibus-setup to configure my input method to Anthy and US -
dvorak for now, and I've configured the shortcut to switch between those
to be Super + Space.
