Restart SCIM on Debian Linux

I used SCIM to input Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters.

System -> Preferences -> SCIM Input Method Setup
-> IMEngine -> Global Setup -> (check the boxes)
-> Apply -> OK

I saw this:

Not all configuration can be reloaded on the fly. Don't forget to
   restart SCIM in order to let all of the new configuration take effect.

  
To restart SCIM, I typed:
su
ps -ef | grep scim



I saw:
user_name      2965     1  0 08:47 ?        00:00:00 /usr/lib/scim-1.0/scim-launcher -d -c simple -e all -f socket --no-stay

user_name      3547  2867  0 09:09 pts/0    00:00:00 grep scim


I typed: (This really depended on the actual number.)
kill 2972

scim -d
I saw:

Without restarting the computer (wasting more than one minute), I could use SCIM at the latest settings.
