Same problem, of course, when using OOo ; I'm using the latest
(Swedish) 3.3 version in both cases. SCIM works fine with other applications
on Ubuntu, like the gedit text editor or Gmail's compose.

As OOo/LO doesn't support GTK's input method switching on the fly (you
cannot choose between the different input methods by opening the
context-menu), you need to enable scim before launching OOo/LO -
either by setting it as your global default (i.e. default not GTK
input method, but scim), or by setting
GTK_IM_MODULE=scim just for OOo/LO

Either add it to the soffice startup script, or launch it manually
from the commandline.

(GTK_IM_MODULE=scim soffice)

Note that it has to be completely shut down, otherwise it will just
reuse an existing session and not apply the change.
