I check the source and I found:
in src/xfns.c: create_frame_xic()
xic = XCreateIC (xim,
               XNInputStyle, xic_style,
               XNClientWindow, FRAME_X_WINDOW (f),
               XNFocusWindow, FRAME_X_WINDOW (f),
               XNStatusAttributes, status_attr,
               XNPreeditAttributes, preedit_attr,
When the locale (LC_ALL)is en_US.utf8, the return value of XCreatIC is NULL.
When set the locale to zh_CN.utf8 , the return value of XCreateIC is OK, and SCIM or IBUS works fine.

I don't know why.

I'll let others do the explaining, but rest assured that getting GUI
Emacs to work with SCIM or IBus is non-trivial. AFAIK you need
third-party packages for that, specifically for SCIM I used to use this
(now I'm using the IBus interface by the same author):


[Also note that this is emacs-devel; questions of this sort are better
served on address@hidden or other help fora.]
