Description Rafael Ávila de Espíndola 2008-12-03 16:00:33 EST
Description of problem:

If using the dvorak international keyboard map, dead acute is not working on emacs.

How reproducible:

In gedit (or any other application), hold the right alt + ' and then a. The result will be a á.

In emacs, doing right alt + ' prints the message "<dead-acute> is undefined"

Can we get bug 461660 re-opened? It's definitely broken again in emacs 24.2.1 in Fedora 18. 

The workaround from 461660, adding (require 'iso-transl) to your .emacs, works for me.
