So there are two instances of ibus-daemon and a couple of other processes, probably because ibus was started both by some gnome package and im-config. Wonder if that might explain why it doesn't work for you.

It would be great if you could help debugging this by uninstalling im-config:

sudo apt-get purge im-config language-selector-gnome

and then reboot and see if Japanese (Anthy) is available after that.

Well, I'm not an Ubuntu GNOME guy - I try to help because Tim asked me. ;) But I may install Ubuntu GNOME later on.

I'd suggest we leave it as is for now.
