Yes, you need canna installed. That's the language engine used.

You may also want to have gimlet(gnome-im-switcher) installed
and run as applet, so that you can select the languages from

Also updating IIIMF packages from Rawhide or
http://people.redhat.com/yshao/im-sdk/rpms/ would be good.
You can get language switching listings with the key combination

iiimf-le-canna is the interface module for canna.

For gtk+ applications, this is fine, because it serves directly to gtk+.
 (htt is a watchdog for htt_server)

For other XIM applications, you need httx and htt_xbe.(htt_xbe works
as if XIM server, httx is a watchdog for htt_xbe)

The code to run httx should be already there in default, in
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/xinput which refers the environment variable

I guess it is just because of canna package is missing?

This should be just
     export XMODIFIERS="@im=htt"

but Jens said,

should be fine.
