    Default Problems getting dead keys to work on US int'l keyboard

    Hi all,

    I've been trying to set up the US int'l keyboard setting, but somehow the dead keys don't work (that is, if I press a dead key, I get the diacritics right away so that I'm unable to combine them with letters).

    Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be, and what I might do about it?

    Thanks,

    Go to Yast, then Keyboard Layout, then under the Layout tab change Variant into intl.

    I think you misunderstood me. I do know how to set the int'l keyboard up, but the dead keys don't work as they are expected to.

    Actually, the problem doesn't seem to pertain to the US int'l keyboard alone; I've tried the German, French, and Swiss keyboard layouts, and the dead keys are not working there either.

    It is not keyboard related. Go into desktop settings, go to Regional
    accesability ==> keyboard layout. Tab XKB options, activate them and loads
    of options for keyboard usage can be set.

    HTH

    Yeah, the XKB options are activated. But I still don't get functioning dead keys.
