Description Felipe Heidrich 2005-03-30 18:40:13 EST
dead keys don't work on my FC3, running on Gnome.

I set my keyboard to brazilian ABNT2, does not matter if I use system-config-
keyboard or setxkbmap to do the work. I type ' ` " ^ and nothing happens. ' 
followed e gives me e instead of é.
I also tried different keyboard layouts (german, english internatinal), I 
could not get dead keys to work.

So I changed my system to run IIIM on level 5, put the new input method 
switcher up in the bottom panel. Using that I set my input to Latin (unitle), 
now when I hit ' it opens a floating window with a list of option. This is 
horrible, my whole life I used ' followed by e to get é, now I suppose to 
hit ', wait a list to come up, then type the number of the option I want. Even 
worse, the option I want (é) is not in the list!

That is how input method is supposed to work now ? I'm missing something 
simple ?

Will deadkeys work again if you stop the iiim service? If yes that is duplicate
of bug 130851.

No, it will not.

Erm, so even if you did service iiim stop as root, the dead key still doesn't
work? It sounds like you have a problem in xorg.conf. and this isn't an IIIMF
bug since this problem happened without IIIMF.

I got dead keys to work on X/Motif/GTK. I had to stop the iiim server and 
You can close this as dup of bug130851
