Description of problem:
I am using a Microsoft Natural Keyboard and the us_intl XKB map, under RedHat's
7.3 KDE 3.0. The problem is that when I press the double-quote key, and then the
spacebar key, instead of a double quote sign, I get a simple diaeresis (not
sure,at least it is what it looks like). All the other dead-keys corresponding
to the same key work just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enter the KDE Control Center
2.Head to the Keyboard Section
3.Chose US English w/ deadkeys as your layout.
4.Click the apply button
5.Open a kterm window
6.Try to output a double quote as described in the description.
Actual Results: The double quote does not appear.
Expected Results: The double quote should have not appeared
Keyboard: Microsoft Natural Keyboard
PS: I am using the us_intl map to get brazilian accentuation, since my kerboard
in not ABNT2
I have the same problem with my setup (from /etc/X11/XF86Config-4):
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
Option "XkbLayout" "us_intl"
I currently use IceWM to manage windows on the desktop. But it is not dependent
on the window manager.
I'm not sure if this is a KDE issue or an X issue, so I've Cc'd Bero
as well. Please attach X server log and config file using link below.

I think it can not be a KDE issue, as I am not normally running KDE. It happens
with whatever window manager/desktop I use: GNOME, KDE and icewm are the ones I
add the lines below in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/iso8859-15/Compose
<dead_diaeresis> <space> : "\"" quotedbl
<dead_diaeresis> <dead_diaeresis> : "\"" quotedbl
