Anyway I'm using SCIM (you can read about it here): http://www.scim-im.org/
I'm awful with Linux - Ubuntu makes everything rather painless, or at least it has for me - so I'm not sure if getting it running on Mint will be different or not. First of all, if you don't have it already, you'll need to download and install SCIM.
SCIM only runs in a few applications natively, from what I can tell (such as gedit). To get SCIM working in multiple applications you also need to install something called scim-bridge: http://www.scim-im.org/projects/scim_bridge
If you're using the K desktop environment, as opposed to Gnome or something else, then there's possibly additional stuff as well.
This page - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SCIM - gives you the details on how to install it and the few pesky files you'll need to edit to get it working in multiple apps - only again it's for Ubuntu. I think most of it will hold true for Mint though, at least as far as the editing of files is concerned.
Aha - I just read Mint is built on and compatible with Ubuntu so hopefully this should be (relatively) straightforward. I'm not the most helpful guy with this stuff, especially Linux which I'm still quite inexperienced with, but hopefully I've been able to point you in the right direction.
