You don't want to activate an *input* method for reading a file.  Input
methods are for entering characters, which aren't available on your
keyboard.  I think the reason you get an error is that LEIM (Library of
Input Methods) is missing on your system -- you can get it from the same
places where Emacs is available.

What you need is to specify a coding system instead.  You can do it with

     `C-x RET c latin-1 RET C-x C-f'
