Try using space after entering one of those - you're probably just using dead keys.

Have you had the time to try the suggestions I made?
$LANG = en_US
Keyboard Layout: de

emacs in an x-terminal does not work with dead keys, but pressing the dead key
twice should work properly. Run:
"setxkbmap -v 9 de" and send the output.
you should set XkbVariant to nodeadkeys in /etc/X11/XF86Config. It fixes this
