Problem with abnt2 keyboard and accent
Last modified: 2009-02-03 15:57:13 EST
After install Fedora 10 and configure all things I saw that my system does not work anymore with Portuguese accents.
I configure correct system-config-keyboard with 'Brazillian (ABNT2)' and gnome-keyboard-properties to layouts = [br] and model = abnt2, but all gnome applications does no work correctly.
One strange thing is urxvt works fine and xev capture accents correctly.
Some idea to fix or another info? Thanks
I use LANG=en_US.UTF-8 but it's not important since another computer here works fine with the same conf and my Fedora 9 works too.
gconf and xprop outputs:

Same with spanish language and latin american keyboard.
On the live cd and in the initial boot everything works fine, but after a software update my system does not work anymore with Spanish accents.
